Health Tip: Switching to a 'Big Kid' Bed
Suggestions for a smoother transition

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- It's a milestone in your child's young life when he or she transitions to a "big kid" bed.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests these tips to make the transition safe and smooth:

  • Ask your child to stay in bed until you come back to wake the child in the morning.
  • If your child gets out of bed, calmly take the child back to bed and remind the child to stay there. Don't let the child get into bed with you.
  • Praise your child for getting back into bed, then leave the room.
  • Offer reassurance by telling the child that you'll come back to check on him or her while asleep.
