    We moved DS into a bed last weekend (a king single not a toddler bed). He is 21 months. I was planning on doing it at 20 months but the shop stuffed up the order then delivery of the furniture was delayed.

    He doesn't need a bed rail on it and has been brilliant. Even when he wakes up he just plays in bed until one of us goes to get him up for the day.

    My kids hated the cot, even with one side of and never really slept in it. Moved number 1 into a king single at 18 months, and number 2 at 12 months. He still visits in our bed regularly.

    Our 2.5 year old is still in a cot, but not for much longer. He's had a real growth spurt with his height lately, so he'll outgrow the cot pretty soon.

    We've been in no rush to graduate him to a bed because he just sleeps so well in the cot!

    We are moving house next week, which will be an adjustment for him in itself, so we'll maybe give it a month before we purchase him a bed. Hopefully the transition will go smoothly!

    18 months for DD. She's also tall and was getting uncomfortable in the cot as she'd move around a lot. She couldn't reach the door handle for her room and there was nothing unsafe within reach so could still get up and play quietly. She'd usually just play with her bed toys anyhow though.

    DS was about 21mths when we moved him to a king single bed.
    DD is 18 mths and is still in a cot. I plan to keep her in her one till she's 16!

    1st boy at about 30 months, 1st girl at about similar maybe she was a bit older. 22mth boy still in a cot and think he will be for another good 6 months. If we put him into a bed he would be getting up and down all night

    19 months, only because we needed the cot for #2 and we wanted to have DS1 settled in his new room and bed well before DS2 arrived.

    It's wonderful, his sleep has actually improved!

    Around 18 months it was a great age to do it because it never occurred to him to get out of bed all night. And if he wakes, which he still was at that age, one of us would hop in with him.
