Pre-switch So, the time has come. We're making the transition from cot to bed. But I remember a friend of mine telling me a while back that the best thing they did was to leave it until their son was three before making the transition and that piece of information just stuck with me.
As we all know, every child is different did you read my post on development milestones? And we all feel ready now, that's the main thing.
But we are yet to make the switch To help with the switch my lovely friend, Vikki at Acosy Bumpers , sent us a cot bed bumper and extra deep fitted sheet. The bumpers are designed to keep children safe and reassured in their big beds. The bumper sits on the mattress edge and is secured in place by the fitted bottom sheet.
This is a massive requirement for us as my son is in a different position every time I go and check in on him. He has always loved his sleep and has never attempted to get out of his cot thank god.
To reduce the strain on those operating an infant bed, many infant beds feature: However, assembly problems and malfunctioning hardware on drop gates can cause the formation of gaps, which have been attributed to infant deaths and other major injuries.

We've stayed in hotels and family members houses in different pop-up cots So i am feeling confident about this. I think we are the ones feeling it, so the more we just chill out and bite the bullet, the better. There is also an emotionally led factor in this. There will be no more cot. So Saturday afternoon, we took down the sides, added his headboard, popped the Acosy Bumper onto the edge and fitted the sheet to make it all snug.
Everything was ready, we let him see the bed, have a play, get a feel for it. Then it was bath, story time and bed Post-switch I can't really believe i am writing this. He fell asleep within ten minutes. He never fails to amaze me and he always takes everything in his stride. It's now 11pm on Saturday night and there's been no getting out, no realising this new-found freedom and running around his room.
I know leaving him in a cot til three years old could be seen as crazy, but I am putting it down to being one of the reasons this transition has been so successful.
Our bedtime routine is so tight and he knows it so well. I think having a solid, not to be messed with, bedtime routine has also definitely helped.
I am writing this feeling so relieved. This was always such a big milestone for us in our heads. Now we can tick it off.
The morning after… Who was a good boy this morning?! Falls To prevent injuries such as concussion and bone fractures from falls when trying to climb out, footholds are not permitted.
Let's see what tomorrow morning brings. The morning after… Who was a good boy this morning?!
He woke up at half six singing to himself, I slowly got myself up, popped downstairs, put the kettle on and then went into his room… then, and only then, did he sit up and jump out of bed.
I was beaming at 6: I even got in the bed surprised to find it took my weight and we had cuddles, not before making sure Tinky Winky, Dipsy, La La and Po were in the bed too… get it right Daddy!
This was just what I wanted to wake up to.
I am putting this down to waiting. If babies are ready and showing signs to make the switch at 15 months? I am so glad we waited after having a first night like last night.
But after a hair cut in town followed by a celebratory brunch today, he is now sparko in his bed. Again, not saying this will be an everyday occurrence, but I am feeling so proud and blessed to have such a clever boy. He just takes it all as it comes and it proves, yet again, that if we just wait and be guided by him… these things could go swimmingly without the forced pressure we put on ourselves.
I am genuinely so thrilled to have been able to use this during the switch to the bed. Signing off this post now as i can hear him waking up from his afternoon nap Yet another milestone accomplished.
