    DS went into a queen solid wooden bed frame at around 18 months. I love that he has a queen!
    I purchased DDs bed when I was pregnant with her. I saw it on sale and loved it. Its a queen also.
    Having the queen beds is great when DS is sick or is having a crappy night - we just jump in with him. Or if we have a few guests staying over, he then jumps in bed with us and the guests have his room.
    Love the queen beds!

    Ds at four has just gotten a single bed as he loved his toddler bed so much, we decided to go for a single with a trundle. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1408595056.339576.jpg

    I am finding sheets easy to source but doona covers harder to come by

    I've bought from target and they've always had stock. I've only ever bought the self coloured sheet sets though, so not sure about those with kiddie prints.

    Having no trouble at all finding sheets for our KS bed. We use a double doona on it and all the kids designs have been easy to find in this size. Love the extra size of the KS, so handy when we need to lie with him for awhile.

    We converted the cot to a toddler bed when dd was about 18mths. She then went into a regular single at 22mths. We only went to the single so quickly as my cousin gave us her daughter's single bed and it was a pain to store it somewhere. I was otherwise contemplating buying a double straight up, just didn't happen that way

    DS has always coslept so we have put him into a queen in his room. Easy for me to sleep with him and we already had the queen bed for guests anyway. Now we have a bedroom for an office that we can close the door and keep DS out of and if guests come DS will come into our bed and the guests will get his bed. I like not having to give up a whole room of the hosue as a guest bedroom that only gets utilised for a week every couple of months. I am finding it hard to find a doona cover I like for it though as they are all very grown up. I have noticed that kids linen does fo up to a double bed in lots of places like kmart, target etc.

    We put DD into a single bed (bed frame from ikea) it doesn't have a toddler rail but is low to the ground. I used some rolled up towels under the fitted sheet for a few nights to help her learn not to fall out and have the cot mattress on the floor (her room has wooden floorboards) she has fallen out maybe twice at the beginning and fell onto the cot mattress slept through it both times. I removed the rolled up towels after a week or so and haven't had any issues with her falling out.

    There is no where enough room in her bedroom for a double bed so we never considered it. I can fit in her single bed with her when I need to, I've fallen asleep in there with her a few times.

    My boys went to king single car beds with flashing lights. They both transitioned well.
