Kids Sheets: A Tip For Easier Crib To Bed Transition

Although very rarely considered, kids sheets play a huge role in getting your toddler ready for his big kid bed and a smaller role in potty training.

The kids sheet that you choose for your child’s room should not necessarily reflect the room’s décor. Sure we know you went to a lot of trouble to choose what the baby’s room would look like but did you actually consider the kid?

Kids are funny little people and are much more inclined to absolutely love things you hate then you may believe, which includes your choice in kid’s sheets, so with that in mind our best tip for kid’s sheets is to let the kid choose.

It is finally time for your little darling to sleep in a big boy or girl bed and so you change the room around and get everything ready. Get the little one ready for bed in his or her “ match the comforter” or favorite PJs and after umpteen trips to the bathroom and innumerable drinks of water it is finally lights out.

A couple hours later, you are congratulating yourself on a smooth transition when a small but insistent body climbs over you or hubby to sleep with you. Now what?

To really get that stubborn little one to sleep in his or her own big kid bed you really should make it a big production. Let the kid choose the kid’s sheets that he or she likes and pick out a special PJ set for the all important first night, choose a special bedtime story about growing into a big kid bed and make it very clear that they are safe.

Another tip; use a plastic fitted kids sheet under the bedding. Even the best potty trained may have an accident the first few nights.

   
What basics should I think about when choosing furniture for my child?

Furniture Basics

The most basic bedroom furniture essentials that your child will need include a bed with a good mattress, a nightstand, and a dresser or armoire for storing clothing.

We also recommend a hamper for laundry (if this isn't in your bathroom) and plenty of storage for toys, books and other items. If your child's room has the space, you may also want to consider a desk for their room.

Of course, just because you know the basics, doesn't mean you won't be completely overwhelmed at the selection of styles, options for configuration and materials from which you can choose. Don't be afraid to take you kid out to a few furniture stores to figure out what appeals to them before you make your final decisions.

   
How do I incorporate seating into my child's bedroom?

Kid's Seating

A rocking chair or other comfortable seating element is a nice addition to kids' room furniture, if there is room. That way, your child and his or her visitors have another place to sit, and a bedside chair will make the room inviting for mom and dad for visits ranging from a toddler's bedtime story to hearing about your middle schooler's day.

The kid's room may be one of the hardest in the house to decorate. You have to plan ahead and try to anticipate what your child will want two years, three years, even five years down the road. So when choosing kid's room furniture, stick to these guidelines:

What kinds of furniture will make my child's room more functional?

Storage Furniture

In addition to basic bedroom furniture, your child's room will also benefit from a toy box in which he or she can stow his or her toys, a bookshelf or two on which to store books and other items, and a desk and chair at which he or she can study, draw, etc.
