    Default Moving house, toddler, and beds ...

    My 2yo dd climbed out of her cot 2 days ago so the cot became a toddler bed. We're moving house in 2 months and my dh has been saying that if our dd goes into a toddler bed before we move then he won't be putting the cot together when we move so she'll have to go into a real bed at the new house.

    I'm worried that if she sleeps in a toddler bed til we move, then in the new house she's in a new room with a new bed (single bed) it will be too much change.

    So, would you keep her in her toddler bed at the new house for a while? Or change to a single bed here (which is not easy given her current rooms layout and powerpoint placements - they are half way up the walls, don't ask!)?

    I expect she's going to find this transition hard as we had a nightmare time after we started emptying this house to sell ... dd went from a relaxed, non-clingy baby to a super clingy, non-sleeping girl . She's a bit better now (a few months later), but I know the road ahead is still going to be bumpy.

    I would still use the toddler bed at the new house so she has something familiar. Too many new things at once maybe too upsetting for her.

    I would keep the toddler bed, having a familiar place to sleep might help her settle better in a new room. I've moved quite a few times and I also make sure not to use fresh, just cleaned sheets, so they have a familiar scent too (not dirty sheets of course just ones that have been slept in for a few nights)

    I would just go with a new bed at the new house. My daughter had her cot converted into a toddler bed at 18months then a few months after she turned 2 we moved house and I was like your hubby I wasn't going to put the toddler bed up again for her in the new house so we just bought her a bed. We kept talking about how she'd have a big girl bed when we moved to our new house and she was very excited. We didn't have any issues at all with her being in her new bed in the new house

    Really a cot is not much effort to put together so id just put it up again at the new house
