Our gorgeous 20 month old has been constantly climbing out of the cot so for safety reasons we had no choice but to move our little one into a toddler bed. Personally I think its too early but we felt it was our only option. Since making this move our toddler will not stay in bed when it comes to nap time or bed time. We have kept the same routine but as soon as we go to leave the room we hear little footsteps following and this happens over and over, one night it was 40 different times! What we have found works it sitting in our little ones room until she falls asleep, but this isn't always possible and doesn't always work. I put a gate on her door but then she just plays. We hardly had any dramas with bed time with the cot.
I would love to hear your suggestions on what worked for you?
