We're going on holiday to Edinburgh in May. DS2 will be 1 and 10 months. He sleeps in a cot in his own room at home but the holiday rental has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with single beds, so DS1 and 2 will be in there. I don't know whether to buy some form of bed guard for the single bed and put him in there, or whether to buy a travel cot or something else? I don't want to co sleep with him because he will feed all night and my boobs will be raw and it won't be much of a holiday.
There's a company here that hire out baby stuff like travel cots and I think pretty cheap. I'm racking my brains for the name. Personally at that age I'd get a travel cot, to save the hassle of your LO not staying in the bed.
I would just see how things are going then, but no, I don't think you need to buy anything special. At that age, ours was in a toddler bed anyway at home, but when we went away, we either just put her in a normal single bed or if that seemed too high or unsafe, we just took the mattress off and put it on the floor. I do remember she fell out of one particularly high single bed on holiday once, but it barely phased her and I just put her back into bed and she went back to sleep. I wouldn't bother trying to source something to bring with you though, especially if you're flying or have limited car space. You could always put a spare duvet on the floor if you need some cushioning. That's still a long way off and you might find he's ready to be in a bed by then.
