    Default Toddler bed

    My DS is 15 months old and a terrible night time sleeper. Would it be bad of me to get a toddler bed so I could lay down with him to go to sleep and then sneak away? So often as soon as I put him down he wakes up. So frustrating. He is still bfing so goes to sleep easily with boobie.

    How do you know when they're ready for a toddler bed?

    Default Re: Toddler bed

    My ds has never really slept in a cot, last time he spent over 4 hours in a cot he was 4 months old.

    He slept in my queen bed with me and now he has a single bed but still sleeps part of the night with me

    Just get a single bed and a side guard. No need for a toddler bed.

    My DS went into a toddler bed (his cot converted) at 16 months for those exact reasons. Made my life a whole heap easier. Just watch out for when they learn they can get out of bed. It only took DS 2 weeks to work that out but it hasn't been too big an issue. He actually sleeps through the night now!

    Default Toddler bed

    Thanks everyone for you replies! I'm just sorta feeling at a loss as to what more I could do.... I don't like to leave him crying (he got so hysterical after a minute that the poor fella vomited everywhere.) I know one day he will not need me at night but it's hard remembering that when I've been asleep at night for like 10 minutes and then he wakes up gaaaaaaah.

    I wouldn't bother with a toddler bed if you want to be able to lay next to him.

    Single or even better king single would give more room

    Default Toddler bed

    Hi I'm actually counting the days until my DS's single bed arrives for the same reason. He's 21 months. I can't settle him in his cot as my 28 week pregnant belly gets in the way. So I'm hoping we can pat, cuddle him to sleep when needed rather than bring him into our bed. (that's the plan, yes I know I'm being optimistic)
