We co-sleep with dd, she's never liked the cot, I'm beginning to think it's because she hates being confined after being free in our bed.
Is it too early to get her a toddler bed? She's been walking for 4 months and can easily climb on and off our couch so I'm not worried about her falling. Just wondering if it's too soon?

Moving 13 month old to a toddler bed?

It wouldn't hurt to try. I know lots of people that moved their toddlers at that age.

Perfect! Thank you! She's a very determined little character how did their little ones go with the transition? I was thinking if setting up a mattress next to the bed until she gets used to sleeping in there.

Start with a mattress on the floor for her even. Knowing how to climb on/off the couch is very different to rolling over when asleep & falling off. That way you ate able to lie down next to her with ease

Oh ok, so mattress on the floor first. I'll try that then.

I would be putting her straight into a toddler bed and putting a mattress beside it for a softfall (although dd has never fallen out). I think transitioning to a mattress, then to a toddler bed might put her out of whack iykwim?

My dd fell out once and has never done it again. She just got straight back into bed

We co-sleep too and I've been thinking of moving him straight to the toddler bed when he can stand/walk. I have read of other people doing that rather than keep them in their cot when they can stand up, because it's a long way to fall if they manage to climb up the cot railings.
Plus we have a spare mattress that I'm going to position under/next-to his bed so that if he does roll out it'll be a soft landing.
