    My son went from cot to a single bed from 2yrs of age. I put a bed rail up as he's a restless sleeper and didn't have any troubles

    DS went to a toddler bed at 2.5. He had started being able to climb in and out of his cot on his own and I knew he would be sensible and not run in and out of his bed and muck around.

    DD is 20 months and I know if I moved her she would not stay in her bed and it would be a pain.

    I see no reason at all to rush it.

    I didn't move DS1 until he was 2y10mths. He never tried to climb out of his cot so we didn't have to rush.

    He went straight into a king single and hasn't climbed out of it once. I think he was so used to having to wait for us to come and get him out of his cot, that it never occurred to him to climb out of bed!

    DD is 26 months and has just been moved into a single bed in the last few weeks. Transitioned beautifully without a hitch. Didn't bother with a toddler bed, waste of money.

    DS was 3 years old when we moved him from his cot to a double bed. He was never a climber & we only moved him because the cot was getting to small for him to stretch out properly.

I think if he went in one and woke up without waking me he could get into all kinds of mischief and he still sleeps in a grobag so him just getting out of bed could be a problem. What age have all your kids gone into toddler beds? I can't remember the exact age of my older 2 but they were at least 2 I am pretty sure
    My daughter sounds a bit like this. We had to put her in to a bed at 2 because she climbed out of her cot. To keep her safe at night should she wake up and get out of bed but not wake us we put a baby gate on her door. And made sure her room was safe for her to be in there alone. Several times we have woken in the morning to find her asleep by her door.

    If you aren't comfortable with putting your son into a bed then don't. He is your child and you know him better then anyone else. Safety first I say!
