Tips for Moving Baby into Their Own Room

After nine months in the womb, 
and a further five months next to mum and dad's bed,  
it's time for Baby to start sleeping in his own room. 

Which, of course, is easier said than done. 

Babies are not very keen on changes in their routine, 
and moving them from mum's side
is probably not going to go down well at first. 

But there's a way of easing
Baby's transition into their own room.

Step by Step
Some babies resist changes, so it is better to make the shift gradually;
start by putting Baby in the crib for her morning or afternoon nap
so she can get used to her new bed and room.

It's important to remember that most medical professionals
advise that keeping baby with you in the same room
for their first six months of their lives
significantly reduces the risk of SIDS.

Room of Joy
Spend some time with your baby in their nursery
prior to moving them there.

By playing together, reading books
or simply relaxing in their new room,
babies can get used to the new surroundings and smells,
and, most importantly, they will be able to associate
their new room with happy memories of them with you in it.

Familiar Faces and Sounds
Babies need to see reassuring objects and hear reassuring sounds
when they wake up in the middle of the night.
A cuddly toy and a soft lullaby can save you hours of sleep.

Apart from being super soft and cute,
this My First Forever Friends* bear
combines two settings that help babies fall asleep:
with the soothing lullabies and the star lightshow
Baby P had no problem falling fast asleep in his new room.

Room for Manoeuvre
Last but not least, go easy on yourself
if the transition does not work at first.
Like all major changes in their life,
babies might just need a bit more time.
