Cot to toddler bed

On Jasper’s 2nd birthday we decided it was time to move him from his cot to his big boy bed. I say big boy bed; we simply took one side off of his cot to see how he got on. We do plan to buy him a a proper toddler bed once we’ve given it a trial, I just didn’t want to completely put away his cot, invest in a new bed and then the transition go terribly and us be stuck having to rebuild his cot and store the new bed.


I filmed a video on why we did it, how we did it and how it has gone for the first week or so and I will do another update in about a month to let you all know if we stuck to it or if the side is back up!

So far it’s going really well though, Jasper has transitioned amazingly and apart from the odd restless night, refusal to go to sleep and early wake up; it’s been quite a smooth ride!

I’ll also do some more in depth blog posts on how to make the transition and when the time is right to do it so please stay tuned and let me know in the comments if there are any other specific questions on the topic you’d like answered!

Enjoy the video, I hope you find it useful and as always, if you haven’t already please don’t forget to hit like, comment and subscribe!

Thanks for reading (and watching) Jess x
