    DS went from cot to king single (with a bed rail) when he was around 3 years old.

    He slept perfectly in the cot so we were in no rush to transition him.

    Around 2.5 and 3.5 for my two. Only bought them single beds. I regret not getting them a double or queen immediately. Would be so much easier to lay down and read stories, hop in with them if they're sick, handy for friends sleeping over. DD1 is 8 now and loves a chat at bedtime. Would be more comfy if we had more room.

    I also regret not going and getting a bigger bed for this reason.
    I typically don't sleep with dd1 but a couple of times she's really needed me to stay with her as she's been very sick. It's not comfy sharing a single! Plus reading/ pre bed routine is also very uncomfortable. And sheets/covers are more likely to slide completely off.
    However I'm sticking with it now as it's a bloody expensive and nice single bed lol

    This is the exact reason we are sticking with the singles. We paid good money for excellent mattresses and even the bed frame was expensive. Stupidly I knew when getting DD2s bed that we should get a double or queen but nope, got the same that DD1 has.

    We converted DS cot to toddler bed + put a tall safetygate on his door after we found him wandering around the house at 15mths. He went into a king single at 2.5.

    DD went into toddler bed at almost 2 and then double bed at almost 3. I'm all for future proofing ourselves against spending more money..

    My girls moved to king singles at 18 months. I do kinda wish I had got doubles so I wasn't curled up like a dog at the foot of the bed when I'm settling them. My 3yo still wakes every night and I lie at the end of her bed till she falls back asleep.

    DD1 I paid heaps for nice furniture which looked grubby in months. DD2 I scored a near brand new bed, bedside drawers and shelf for $300 on gumtree.

    DS has a double bed. But we coslept so he is used to a bed. He also moves a lot in his sleep. Amd we regularly lie with him. So we got a double bed. We will probably do the same for DD.
