You little baby is growing. That means your child’s needs are changing and you have to help make the transition a happy one. Your child is now more curious and refuses to go to bed not wanting to miss out on anything! To make the child go willingly to bed, make the bed inviting enough. There are plenty of ways to make bedtime a pleasurable activity.

Along with the mattress, get a mattress pad or protector. At least till your child is full potty trained. The mattress pads are water proof and will prevent the mattress from getting soaked.
Children always need something cozy and comfortable to cover them while sleeping. Comforters are available in various fabrics the best of them being micro fleece or combed cotton. These are light weight fabrics and have a very high comfort quotient. They are easily washable and do not lose their fluffiness on repeated washing.
Pillows are crucial for a good night’s sleep. So get a comfortable pillow that is soft yet firm enough to provide adequate support for the neck. The toddler pillows are available in various materials like feathers, cotton or polyester. The best option would be to get the polyester or the cotton pillow. Ensure that the pillow case fits securely.
Colors and prints
