DD 2.1 has been in the bed of her cot/bed for about 4 months. She started waking up in night and when I went to see her her dummies/teddies were on floor and sge was out of quilt and hanging over edge. Last night I put her in a normal single bed and she slept all night and her dummies and teddy was still with her this morning. I was planning to change her over to single bed now thinking maybe she is too big for cot bed but mil has put me off saying she is too young. Just wondered, is it ok to put her in normal single bed now and what age did you put your dc in one?? Thanks!
My DD went from cot to single bed at 2 The bed was her 2nd birthday present (is that boring)? She was fine, and sounds like your DD had a good sleep. You can always put a bed guard on the side if you want.
not too young. DS' bedroom has his toddler bed and cot bed and ever since we took the sides off the cot bed 15months, he would always move to the guest bed in the middle of the night. No rail either, - but he does fall out regularly and just gets back up without complaining.
Ds1 went into a bed at 18 months. Most of my RL friends put their dcs in one at that age or earlier.
Really depends on the child though. I tried 20mo ds2 in one a couple of weeks ago and it was a disaster - he slept really badly and wailed a hell of a lot (and kept falling out). On the 3rd night I put him back into a cot and have vowed to keep him there until he hits puberty.
