Q.

age for a bed

my daughter is 23 months and still sleeping in a camp cot. She is very tall for her age and therefore the camp cot is getting to small. Should I put her in a bed now? Do you think it is uncomfortable in this type of cot at her age as she does wake a few times in the night. She then wants me to stroke her back until she falls asleep again it is exhausting. How will I stop this?

You should put her in a bed as she seems to be ready.

i put both my children in a bed at 20 months as I just had a feeling that they weren't comfortable in their cots. It's not too early at all. Just remember to use a bed guard as they may fall out in the beginning
