I am wondering when or what tips you can give as to when to transition my little one from cot to bed. I have heard it can be from 18 months to 3 years?

  • My daughter went from cot to her own bed at around three years of age.


  • I think it depends on the child. I’m going to wait & see when I feel like its safer for my son (when it appears he might be able to climb out of his cot I’ll transition him to a toddler bed). My nephew had just started climbing & his mother thought he was asleep in bed & heard him crying & found his in the middle of the floor at 21 months old& he had fallen out of the cot & broken his wrist. I guess its hard to know.


  • when they start trying to climb out of the cot and begin to walk


  • Usually the transition from cot to bed happens when bub becomes too big for a cot. Mine were around 2
