My little boy is nearly 2 and sleeps really well both at night and a 2 hour nap in the day so I don't want to spoil it.
When is a good time to take the side off the cot?

DD is coming up for 2.5 and still in a cot. She sleeps well. I'm of the opinion than I'm not going to change anything that's working well!

I was wondering same. My 2 year old sleeps fine in his cot bed, only intending to take the bars off if/when he tries to climb out...

I wouldn't worry until they start to climb out. That's what my son did so we took the sides off but it made his sleep regress a bit for a while.

My dd was still in her cot at almost 3 I think. I waited until it seemed that her climbing out was likely to be an issue which wasn't for a good while as she happily had a sleeping bag for ages.

We had a little practise at the in laws and then a B&B so we could see that she was pretty ready

Thanks all,
Thinking of a second so was just thinking of time scales.

We did it at 16 months, best thing I ever did! But she hated the cot

Well mine's just started climbing out, so might get a bed guard instead... any tips?

We've just done it. DD is 2.8 she climbed out of her cot 3 times in 3 days about 12 months ago but never since...
Decided time was right, just stopped nappies at night and thought it would be appropriate to bring in bed at same time.
Whenever you are both ready I think
