Time to put my daughter in her own bed?

Vikki


Subject: beds

Question: my daughter is 2 in Jan and was wondering if it would be safe to put her in a junior bed one that's literally on the floor and then put a safety rail on the bed as well or would you keep her in a cot and if so when would you put her in a bed.

Answer: Dear Vikki:

I think you know your child better than anyone else. Let your instincts guide you. If she seems to sleep well without falling out then go ahead an put her in a toddler bed.

The rail might be a good idea if she thrashes around in her sleep. It is up to you.

Best Wishes!
