My eldest was scaling and climbing out of her cot by 16months, so even though we had a single bed, I started her with her cot mattress on the ground first. After a month transitioned her to the single mattress. Once I was sure she wasn’t falling off in her sleep, that’s when we finally elevated her again. (Well past 2yrs old by that point). I know you can get bed railings, but my daughter loved to climb so I knew it would be safer to not give her something to scale.
