When Your Child is Ready For a Toddler Bed

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.

We have complied 10 important life skills for children at young ages to acquire. It’s important to get them started young, and these are very useful to have them learn as they prepare for the school years ahead.


Ask your child to help you. Something as simple as mixing the batter, or getting out the ingredients for a recipe is a great way to keep them interactive with you.


You can take your kids to survival camps. This will not only help kids learn how to “survive” without technology but it will teach your kids skills such as how to build a shelter, cook over a campfire,etc.


Your kids can learn basic skills about how water and weather can affect plants growth. An example is how watering is important and needed in order to grow the food we want to eat.


Children hurt themselves quite frequently, so its important for them to know how to fix their boo boo’s but also their friends as well.


I cannot swim and I wish I knew how; I hate water and I don’t want my kid to grow up with the same fear his mother has. This teaches them how to be self sufficient.


Money is a necessity in life whether we like it or not. Have them pick out a gift with their allowance, or even show them how to budget a small item.


Every kid should learn how to wash their own clothing. It could be a great reward for the both of you as they start to get older. Allow them to separate the loads and put them in the washer.


Children are always eager to know more about everything that is around them. Allow them to watch you as you replace a light bulb and get them to understand how to do it.


You can’t be with your kids all the time to protect them. This is something that can be taught by someone in your family or at a class. They need to understand stranger danger and how to protect their self in an emergency.


I still haven’t mastered this one yet, but it is important for everyone to have. Allow them to understand their daily schedule and when they have personal free time; this can help them understand tim much better.

Helping your child to learn these items at a young age can help your child develop great in the years to come. Have fun learning with them and be patient.
