A Parent’s Guide to Transitioning From Cot to Bed

If you are a parent, Teddy doesn’t have to tell you about how valuable sleep is. But you may not fully understand the implications of sleep on your young ones. When children grow up having a good amount of sleep, it benefits brain development, emotional well-being, and good physical development. On the contrary, sleep deprivation during our youth can lead to obesity, depression, behavioural issues, poor concentration and a weak immune system.

When Is It Time To Transition From Cot To Bed

One of the key parts of your child’s early years is transitioning from a cot to a bed. It might be time for your child to move to a bed when:

  • They begin climbing out of the cot, putting them at risk of falling.
  • They are toilet training and need to be able to get to the toilet easily during the night.
  • You have another baby who requires the cot.
  • Your child is moving out of your bed and into their own bed.

When your child finally moves from cot to bed, often between the ages of 18 months and 3 years old, it is a milestone in their life as well as yours. Switching to a bed gives them more space, more freedom and individuality, and can increase their standard of sleep as quality mattresses are readily available.
