    Default When did your toddler sleep 'properly' in bed

    DS1 (24mths) just finally transitioned to his big boy bed (need the cot!).

    However every time I check on him, he is still at odd angles and positions all night! I just moved him as he was laying on his side against the guard rail (like he would have with the cot wall).

    At what age, or how do you help them, sleep 'properly' in a bed - meaning head up one end and stay there! Obviously I can leave the rail up for now, but how long?

    We moved dd1 to a single bed at 18 ish mths and she has always slept normally with the odd exception of a nightmare. She is now 3yo.

    We never had a rail. She fell off a couple of times in the early days but that was it.

    DS went into a bed at 2.5 and I think it was 3-4 months before he slept the right way up all night. I'd often find him at the foot end or lying across the bed! They figure it out eventually.

    DS is nearly 3 and we still find him in odd positions! We still have a guard rail on in case but one night he fell out at the bottom end of the bed, how he managed that I'll never know, lol

    We got jasper a double bed so it doesn't matter if he sleeps like a clock (slowly rotating) though we no longer find him feet up the wrong way any more. So maybe 4ish.

    DS is 22 months and still sleeps all over the place in his toddler bed. Oddly, he slept in a proper sized single bed earlier this week and he slept 'properly'.

    He's in a sleeping bag so doesn't get cold, he hates blankets, so him moving all over the bed doesn't worry me.

    DD stopped spinning around in bed around 3 I think. Now at 3.5 I occasionally find her in odd positions, particularly if its a hot night.

    He's still in a sleeping bag, but I don't want to move him to his doona until he sleeps relatively normal!

    I wonder if still being in the sleeping bag is actually making it worse??

    I find sleeping bags inhibit night time toileting so dd1 was out of a bag by 20 mths and dd2 is now graduating out at 16mths.
