There is no fixed rule on when should move your child out of her cot and put her in a bed. That said most children make the move sometime between around 18 months and three and a half. Certainly they need to have moved once they gain the ability to climb out of the cot!

There might be a reason you particularly want them to move — such as the imminent arrival of a new baby.

Go to bed really early like, with your kids at least once a week. To delay that possibility.

Then the big change of moving from cot to bed will be well over by the time the next big change — the baby — comes along. Otherwise it can become stressful for the toddler. Alternatively, you can have the new baby arrive first, as big-change number one, and put the baby into a Moses basket next to your bed.

A bit like a Mummy cuddle — without Mummy. Available in two sizes and four designs. Try breaking the motion sleep cycle by gradually eliminating motion at nap time.

Then, when the baby is months old, you could make the next big move of shifting the baby into the cot and the toddler into the big bed. Then, you might choose to move your child simply because she has outgrown the cot. Do remember that as soon as your child is in the big bed, she is going to be able to get out easily whenever she wants to.

So before you make the move, check the safety aspects of everything that they might have access to if they climb out. What do I do if my child is unhappy moving to a big bed? Some children find the move easy, and some find it really hard.
