Thank you all, I have taken the sides off the cotbed today, and after a couple of hours of messing about in the room she is now fast asleep. I have to admit I don't know what I thought the rush was, I guess it's just her elder sister got moved into a bed quite early ( due to needing the cotbed) and took to it so incredibly well. But yes, I'll hold off on a full size bed for a while, thank you
My first dd moved into a bed at 18 months ( v low bed with a bed rail), mainly because we needed the cot for dd2. Dd2 is now 23 months and still in the cotbed with sides on. I am in two minds as to whether to order a bed and ditch the cot, or just turn the cotbed into a toddler bed. In a way it would be nice to not fork out just yet. What age did you move yours into a bed?
