Heads up. As you may have guessed from the title, this article is intended for people who are looking for tips on how to get their child out of their bed.
If you don’t want your child out of your bed, I totally support you in that decision, and wish you the best of luck. It’s a personal choice and as long as you and your baby are getting the sleep you need, I say that whatever method you’re using is the right one.
For those of you who are looking to reclaim your bed from your little one and move him to his own room, read on.
So if you’re still with me, either your little one has reached an age where you think it’s time that he slept in his own room, or you’re not getting quality sleep with your baby in your bed. If you fall into the latter category, I can sympathize.
When I was pregnant with my first, I was so excited about the nighttime cuddles I was going to get. Baby would sleep directly between my husband and I, I’d wake when he woke, he’d feed for a bit, and then we would both drift back off to sleep. It was going to be a scene straight out of a French indie film.
But, as always, reality had other plans for my little fantasy. I hadn’t taken into account the fact that my child would wriggle and cry and grab at my face while I was trying to sleep. It’s cute for a few minutes, but significantly less cute after two or three hours of it.
But anyways, back to the solution.
If things do go smoothly, that’s great. I mean really great. Not a lot of kids I know have given up sleeping in their parents’ bed without a few days of fuss, so if yours accepts the move without a challenge, count yourself among the lucky few.
It may not seem like it sometimes, but kids really do like to make their parents happy, so lots of talk about how big they’re getting and how proud you are of them will help speed up the process.
Hopefully, this is all the help you’ll need to get your bed back, but if you’re still having issues, you might want to check out Kids:The Manual. It’s a customized resource package, guaranteed to eliminate problem behaviors in kids aged 2-12.
