    The first time you hear a thud in the night you know you have waited too long - they've learnt to climb out

    About 18 months. Only because both were trying to climb out at that age and our floor was tiled (I would have kept them in longer otherwise).

    Ds1 was 2 when he went into his car bed.
    Ds2 is 2 and a half and will be going into his car bed once it arrives.
    The novelty of the car bed with lights worked well with ds1, he was happy to saty in it so the process was easy, hopefully it will be the same with ds2.

    20 months. That way gave her a good 8 months of being in her own bed so she'd forgotten that the babys cot used to be hers and only sees it as the bubs.

    it's funny how different parents appreciate different things. I like that my kids can get out of the bed, and come to me if they wake in the night. But i never used a cot with 4 sides to hold them in, so i haven't experienced the benefits of having them contained.

    yes I agree! I'm not there parents but full time nanny so I put them to bed a lot. an d both miss 3 and miss 5 have been taught to stay in beds in morning and call for mom to come get them in morning. They don't use toilet during night. guess there's pros and cons to both choices

    This is us except DD1 is 2 1/2
    We have a king single for her in the spare room but its too bright in there for her day naps.
    Will put her in her big bed when we move, she'll be just about to turn 3


    Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.
