So my son will be 20 months when my little girly is born. I was wondering if I should move him to a big bed before the baby or after???? ANd if i should do it before...how long before?? Like when he's 18 months?? Or should I wait until the baby is 4 months or so since she will be in a bassinet in our room anyways. THanks for the advice!!!!!

I think maybe explain it as a birthday gift...you are now a big boy so you get to sleep in the big boy bed...and then unless you have sheets for the bed I would let him choose the sheet. My friend had her children 18 months apart and when it was time for her son to go into the big bed she went and got flintstone sheets becuase he loved the flintstones, thanks to his uncle who still watches them....anyways before she got the sheets he was kind of hest_tant but once he saw the sheets he wanted to sleep in the big boy bed.

Thanks mommybabyboy21..that sounds like a fun idea. He is obcessed with basketb___s,baseb___s, basically all sports so maybe I could find him some fun sports sheets. My in-laws are buying him a race car bed so maybe that will be exciting enough for him. Hopefully...lol. I just can't picture him staying in the bed for some reason...ha. I guess we will see.
