One of the biggest challenges of moving with a toddler is how to make the transition go as smoothly as possible. So, how can you best ease this transition for your toddler? Follow these simple tips to make the transition easier for you, and your toddler, so that you all enjoy your new home.
How to Move with a Toddler
Moving with an infant or toddler is a challenge for any parent. From adding in essentials to staying organized when packing and moving, here are suggestions that can help parents move with a toddler.
Time it up properly.
Starting to move in advance is a must to help minimize the risk of having to deal with meltdowns and boredom. The best time to begin is in the morning. Your toddler can’t be left alone when you’re unpacking or arranging furniture, so starting early is the best way to avoid tantrums and boredom.
Try to move some toys in as you move things
So, to make your move a bit easier on you and your toddler, try to set up some toys or books to entertain him while you move. You can also make a small area for your toddler near the haul truck with the movers Singapore where he can play and explore while you work.
Don’t move too much at once
Talk to our moving company if you can move some items in advance. Meanwhile, you can start by emptying some of the boxes of the storage shed to make the process easier for you and your toddler. If possible, keep in mind that your toddler can become overwhelmed, so try not to make the move too stressful for him or you.
Set up a play area before moving in
If you have decided to bring in a few toys for your toddler to play with before you move into your new house, make sure he has somewhere safe to play and explore. Your toddler should have a place to play that’s not too far away from the truck or any furniture or other moving boxes you may need to move
Make sure you and your toddler are eased into the move
After you’ve set up the play area, and he’s had enough playtime, you can start moving furniture and boxes in a fairly slow, yet controlled, manner. This will make it easier for you and your toddler, so that he doesn’t have time to get too scared or anxious.
Tips on How to Settle on Your New Home with a Toddler
Moving can be a stressful time for both the toddler and you. Here’s a few tips that can help you make a smooth transition to your new home.
Take a day off work.
The first week can be extremely busy, as your family adjusts to new routines and gets used to your new home. Take a day off work, and take care of any tasks that you need to do. This will make the adjustment easier for everyone.
Establish your routines.
It can take a while for a family to get used to living in a new place, and one of the best things you can do for them is to establish routines. If you have a normal routine at home, it will help your kids feel more comfortable living in a new home.
Give them some space.
It can be difficult for your kids to get used to a new place, especially if there is someone new living there with them. It’s important to give them some space to live and become used to the new neighborhood. They should be able to look out the window or walk around on their own without you hovering over them.
Make the house a “home”.
As much as your kids are moving to a new place, they’re still your kids and you want to make it feel like home for them. So, one of the best things you can do is put up photos on the wall that used to hang in your old home.
Make the transition easier.
Make sure that you tell your kids that everything will be alright. There’s a lot of excitement in moving. But it’s important to reassure your kids and tell them that they’ll make new friends and meet new people.
