As a first time mom I can’t describe how hard it was to move Lexi from her bassinet to her crib in her own room. I do have to state that her room is all the way across the house. I also have to tell you that Lexi did better than I did. I was so sad to not have her in our room, but it was time for her to move out.
Below are three tips that made this transition easy on Lexi:
- Hang out in her room for a bit. Make her feel like you are there. I can’t begin to tell you all how much this helped Lexi. I only did it for almost two weeks and thankful that this helped so quickly.
- Do the switch in stages. I started off having her nap in there and then moved her in her room for bedtime.
- Create a routine. I always have some bonding time with Lexi in my room and then we go to her room for story time before I put her down for the night.
These three things really helped her transition and I hope they can help you mommas as well.
