trudy,nsw,mum to kai 5 & chelsea 21 mths
I moved my son into a single bed when he was ready which was at 12mths.
He has one of those car beds. It's really good as it has high sides but not high of the ground.
It was a bit expensive but he can use it for a long time as it is a single bed size. That is the kinda bed that I suggest

Just a thought - you might wanna consider a trundle bed. Your child can sleep on the bed and pull out the trundle incase he falls and on unsettled nites, you can lay there with your child too. As I said, just a thought for you.

the other thing i was thinging was buying a set of bunks - as all new bunk beds have to have the sides onthe top bunk, if you buy a set that can be pulled apart and used as 2 ground level ones then i would use the one with the sides to start with and as we progress we move into the normal bed and the next baby moves in to the sided bed. and in the end after all kids have outgrown the sides, we just remove them!
well thats what we have been thinking, so i hope it helps.

Mum to toddler
If you take the side off the babies cot it is much the same as a toddler bed and much cheaper!

the wiggles have a 'big red car' bed but it is $450 shipped to perth, $400 everywhere else in australia i think its at www.thewiggles.com.au
is that to much to spend on a bed? its a full size single mattress so a bit longer use.....but he will grow out of the wiggles of course
maybe i should just buy a toddler bed $200 ........fits cot mattress
who knows hey ..partner thinks its to much money
