Mine found it quite exciting and was very keen on helping with both packing and unpacking. Needless to say, her helping backfired a bit...
No issues with the house as such, just endless comparisons.

We moved in September. ELIJAH still asks to go 'home' sometimes and still calls our new house the 'new house' it's not home yet. Makes me feel a bit sad. I loved our old house

We bought our first home and moved when Louis was 20 months. He didn't have any issues and I was quite surprised as he's a sensitive little soul and doesn't normally like change, plus I was 8 months pregnant so envisaged all sorts of problems! I needn't have worried as he loved the house and his room from day one.

i moved when LO was 3yrs 4months & i just made it as exciting as possible & made it sound like the old house was boring compared to her new house & new bedroom.
she got a new bed & well a whole new bedroom set which helped alot!

We moved when Alexander was 21 months old and he just took it in his stride. For a few weeks he played a game with his toys where he would make them a "new house" under a chair. I guess that was his way of dealing with it. He slept badly for a few days and then was fine. He LOVED exploring the rooms, cupboards and closets before the furniture was all moved over. It was a big adventure for him. I'm sorry Micah seems apprehensive but he will probably adjust very well when the time comes.

We moved in late July (he was 25 mo) & N has just started accepting his new home.
Until recently, he too wanted to go to his 'old house' & asked almost every day.
We took a trip recently & it seemed to be a turning point for him.
He wanted to 'go home' by day 3 of our trip & home meant our new home.

(We moved from the ocean to the mountains. It was a huge change for him....he loved the ocean so much. We also moved away from his beloved Papa, Nana & Auntie.)

Ive moved with my three year old who is diagnosed ASD and has issues with routines and dislikes change but he coped much better than anticipated. We couldn't explain to him that we were moving because he doesn't understand what we say BUT I did take him on daily walks past our new house before we moved and told him it was our house.

Im sure it will all go smoothly and your LO will cope just fine.

I've been worrying quietly about this too. We will be moving in a month or so, so our little girl will be so close to Micahs age. She's known this as home forever. Our home literally belongs to her, it is her shelter, her safety, she recharges here and it is filled with so much love here........ And I worry that she won't feel as secure, that she will miss her comfy place, and be scared in her new bedroom. I would love to know how you get on, please update us xx

I moved when Jason was 19 months old and he took to the house amazingly and knew his way around very quickly
