I’m a complete fan of co-sleeping. I have done it since my son was little. He is now three and a half and I kicks and I want my bed back! Since story time is a fun time for him, I recently got proactive in locating books that would encourage him to see how awesome it was to have his own bed! Beyond making his bed set up super awesome, seeing some of fun characters make the transition certainly is a fun way to create a story time that fits the scenario!
These children’s books are not only affordable but fun and encouraging.
Elmo is now Big Enough for a Bed! Just like your kiddo! What could be better than seeing one of their favorite characters from Sesame Street transition to a big kid bed?
Your Own Big Bed will encourage from the crib to the bed!
Big Bed for Giraffe will remind them of April the giraffe I’m sure!
A Bed of Your Own will encourage that fun transition all the way from brushing their teeth to climbing in to their big kid bed!
I Love to Sleep in My Own Bed is a great read and also at time of this post going live, FREE for Kindle users!
The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep is a magical journey through a forest that leads to sleep!
Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book, because there is no better way then to rhyme your way to bed!
The Going To Bed Book is a best seller and for many reasons! It is fun and a quick read!
Goodnight Moon has been a popular children’s book for many years and is a calm way to end the day!
When all else fails, Go the F**k to Sleep is a winner!
Making the transition from a crib to a big kid bed can be difficult but co-sleeping to solo sleeping can be heartbreaking to both the parents and child. Create a fun routine and be strong! I sat by my son’s bed and he got up four times in an hour before passing out! Some nights they are going to crawl back in to a comfort zone, that is OK! Trust me, they will eventually make it through the night, through the week, through the month, and then on to solo sleeping for good!
