For little ones that have co-slept with their parents most of their lives, it can be a big step to learn to sleep on their own.
If you’re ready to move your toddler out of your bed and into their own bedroom, you might consider sleeping in their new room with them for a few nights before encouraging them to fall asleep by themselves.
Camp out on an air mattress on their floor for several nights so that you’re nearby but not in the same bed.
When you’re ready to move forward, encourage your kiddo to fall asleep in their own bed while you sit in a chair by the door.
These intermediate steps can be a great way to make the move gradual, so that your little one can adjust to the change!
