    logan has a cotbed atm and hes using it as a bed now not a cot and i just wondered does anyone know what age they last too?
    i dont know wether to keep him in this then let him choose a single bed (within reason of corse) in a couple yrs or so or buy him a junior bed/low single bed instead now ?

    what do you all plan to do or have you done?

    thanks

    xx

    We have a toddler bed for Hayden...his brothers sleep in twin beds (I think it's single over there). If I needed to Casen, my almost 5yr old would be able to fit just fine in the toddler bed though...which uses the crib mattress. So it should last awhile. I personally haven't left them in it longer than age 3 though

    Ours has short sides like maybe 1 1/2ft long? But Hayden hasn't slept with them on since 15mo? He never falls off

    cot beds and junior have no difference so you would be buying a junior bed for nothing imo.... cotbeds last till 4/5yrs so i would just wait till then xxx

    thank you all.

    logan doesnt need sides either really , he doesnt have any now and never falls out apart from maybe on 1 or 2 occasions in the last month but i do like the beds with the lil sides on.
    he has alot of space in his cotbed atm so i rekon it will last him a while and maybe should keep him to that until hes ready for a single. i just cant make up my mind lol x

    Junior beds and cotbeds are exactly the same size, so if he's currently in a cotbed then there's no point getting a junior bed. Once he's grown out of it (most seem to say up to 4 years) you'd need a normal single bed.
