As kids continue to grow from baby to toddler to teenager, as a parent you need to ensure that your child has the perfect bed to suit them. As all children grow and develop at different rates there is no set age of when they should and shouldn’t move from a cot to a bed, but when you do feel that they are able to move from a cot safely there are a few options available.
At approximately 3 years old most children move from a cot into a traditional single bed to improve their comfort and to ensure they suitably fit their bed. Whether it’s a toddler bed or a full-sized single mattress, pick a bed they’ll love getting into each night is really important. The younger members of the family will adore their own smaller bed as they transition from cot to their brand new ‘big’ bed.
