Been a while since I was last on here. Don't seem to ever find the time, we've just moved from a 2 bedroom flat to a 3 bedroom house. I didn't think it'd more work, but it is. My lil girl is soooo much happier tho I don't have to keep telling to be quieter because I'm worried about the neighbours, she shouts and sings as much as she likes
Libby is 18 months now, and a friend of mine as already put her little girl into her toddler bed. Should I be thinking of transfering from cot to the cotbed??
I know every toddler is different, and I'll know when it's right but when did you all make the move???
Yes sorry. She's been in cot bed since we moved her in from her moses basket, I meant without the sides.
I just don't think she'd ever stay in bed.
Thought so just wanted to check!!
Well do you think she's ready? I tried to move Ben just before his 2nd birthday and it was a nightmare. He wouldn't sleep in his bed. Screamed for hours and ended up sleeping in the spare bed (which is in his room). The sides went back on the next day. I don't know what made me take the sides off. He sleeps fine in his cotbed, naps fine. He jut wasn't ready.
I have been thinking the same thing, my lo is 19 months but she hasnt shown any signs about being ready, im hoping she will be in it a little while yet.
If she starts climbing out then i think it wil be time to take the sides off!
I knew mine was ready when he absolutely refused to be lowered into his cot. He would cling into my neck and scream! We took one side off and the other side against the wall. We have used a bad guard as he moves around during the night. Now the side is off I can nearly lie with him and read bedtime stories with him. He really loves it so was the right time. He was 19 months. He's only fallen out once despite the guard. I guess you will know when the time is right. There is no harm in trying it and if she doesn't like it, put the sides back up again.
I wondered this same thing about my son a few months back, is he ready to change... So i took one side off the cot and put a bed guard up, rather than changing it fully to a bed straight away, that way if he didn't like it the side could go back on easy enough. As it turned out, he loves the freedom and he doesn't wander round the room, when he wakes IF he gets out of bed he just goes to his door and comes to me if he gets that far before me haha, but i still havent changed it to a bed yet. I want him to cut his last molars then im going to see if he settles better, then when the teething trauma is done im going to make cot a bed fully.
Give it a try, at worst you'll have to re-fasten the cot side on, you never know, you might be suprised and she too might love the freedom
