Middle made the transition much earlier at 10 months as it just wasn't safe for him to be in a cot. Girl at that time moved to a proper single bed and the move for both was incredibly smooth.
Tidgy is now approaching 25 months and is still in his cot. He's much smaller than the other two were at the age of 2 but he's now getting to that point where he tries to climb out. I woke this morning to him toddling through to my room. Girl had lent over the cot to cuddle him and he got his leg over the bars, expecting to be lifted out....so she did just that!
I've put off moving him into a junior bed for 2 reasons. 1, there is limited space in the boys room, to the point that I don't think we could fit in a junior bed. Hubby's answer to that is to buy bunk beds, which I'm not keen on for another couple of years and 2, he's such a destructive, disruptive and damaging toddler that I just know that as soon as he figures out he can get out of bed the boys room will be carnage. He wrecks everything and thinks he's being funny. His current favourite activity is lobbing everything from one side of the room to the other....and then clapping his hands, applauding his throwing skills.
|Hard to believe that this cheeky little fella can be such a handful, eh?|
