Moving from a cot to a toddler bed or single bed can definitely feel daunting for many parents and carers, but it doesn’t need to be a scary task. Like anything, with our little ones if we have a plan and include them in the change process it will be a lot smoother.

One thing I forgot to mention in the vlog is side rails! Below are the exact rails we used for our boys to ensure they were far less likely to roll out of the bed. We have only recently stopped using these rails, they were a great addition to their single bed and also handy for overnight stays as they fold down easily.  You can find similar rails at most baby stores.
