Have we moved on too early


We took the side off ds2 cot yesterday.band put on a bed guard.mit was around a similar age to ds1.
I thought it was best to remove it as ds2 keeps trying to climb and he's very accident prone. He is always banging his head I guess I just wanted to avoid that accident but I think I may have got it wrong. We put him to bed just before 7 last night and he didn't stay in it at all and crashed around 9ish. He woke up very early this morning and is over tired and refusing to nap. I bring him downstairs and he screams because he is tired but just isn't staying in bed. Been at it for hours. I can't do this with ds3 aswell. Have misjudged this?

We put M in his toddler bed at about 8 month old, if im right, we also never put a bed guard on because he was learning to stand and it was far more dangerous than falling out of bed, the first few nights actually went great, then it started goign down hill, he would want to play all hours, sit at his gate crying etc. but i stuck to my guns and now we only have a few of them nights, IMO if you put him back in a cot, this could still happen 6 month down the line, so why not try persevere, if your at your wits end with it then there is no harm is putting him back in the cot, i just dont think it will avoid the situation.

sorry im not a great deal of help, just didnt want to read and run

If he slept fine in the cot, I would have left him. My dd1 was 19months when we switched, and dd2 is almost 2 and still in hers. Maybe give it another couple of nights and see how he gets on? I would hace no.problem switching back if it diesntr work x

Ben didn't go into his cot bed until 3!! He never once climbed out and was more than happy in there. If there's no reason to need him out of the cot I'd go back to it for a while.

My LO is the same age as yours and is still in his cot, he sleeps 12-13 hours so I'm not doing anything to rock the boat lol, we use sleeping bags so he can't try to climb out anyway, DS1 was 2 and 3 months I think and it was an easy transition, I'm just going to wait longer, when he's at an age I can tell him to go back to bed. If DS2 wasn't getting to sleep till 9 I personally wouldn't see any need to keep trying, unless you're worried for his safety of course.

I'm a little worried. He's very climby and very accident prone, I keep watching him trying to climb out. He isn't in a sleeping bag anymore as he figured out how to get out by wriggling so he sleeps with a duvet and blanket.
Ds1 was a similar age but thinking about it I think he asked for it as such. We went on holiday and he refused the travel cot so he slept in the bed there with a bed guard and when he got back he wanted the same. I guess I just kinda assumed similar but tbh ds2 is a lot more babyish thends1 was at the age.
It's hard going with the naps so I think I will put it back.
Thanks ladies
