Well it’s officially time to start thinking about transitioning Claire to toddler sleep!! One of the main reasons we were successful in sleep transitioning with E to a toddler bed as early as we did was the Dockatot.  Until recently she didn’t even know she could get out of her bed.  And even now she will hop out really fast and scurry back in.  It’s actually kind of funny—and I really think it’s the coziness of her Dockatot.

Now that Claire is sleeping well at naptime AND bedtime, it’s time to start thinking about the next step.

It’s a great idea to use the Dockatot for everyday play, lounging, and napping and if you’re traveling, even better for sleep!  It feels and smells like their regular sleep routine!

We’ve started by just letting her relax and get aquatinted with it, maybe sleeping in it for naps.  Then we will put it in her big girl bed in 5-6 months to help her sleep all night in a new bed like we did with E when she’s ready to transition!

Also, does this mean what I think it means!?  Time to start planning Claire’s Big girl room!!!

What are your tips for transistioning from swaddling/infant sleep to baby to toddler sleep?
