Lately I have been going back and forth about a toddler bed for Antonio. He is autistic and I don’t feel like he can communicate or listen well. So it worries me to put him a toddler bed all alone.
I wonder if he will get up or fall out etc. I mean it’s all new to us. We have put it off for so long because I didn’t think he was ready, but we have to do it sooner or later and the time might be now. I have to put my mama bear feelings behind me and accept he’s no longer a little boy.
- Signs that he’s ready
sleeps through the night on his own and doesn’t get up. This is the first thing that we noticed. Even when he wakes up before us, he stays in his bed and occupies himself.
- Can understand no. Whether he likes it or not is another story but for the most part he understands and usually stops.
– The room is 💯 baby proof. This was my biggest fear. I didn’t want him to open all the drawesr to his dresser or play with toys or get into trouble so we had to make sure this was taken care of.
- Puts an interest info bigger beds whether it’s a toddler bed or just parents beds. He loves coming into our bed and loves being super comfy, so we knew he enjoyed this.
Here are some of our favorite items that we used to get his room ready for his new bed.
