Perhaps your child has been climbing out of their cot, is night toilet training or has a new sibling. Either way there will come a time when your baby needs to ditch the cot and move to a bed, and when it does here are 7 things that you can expect to happen.
1. Cheers and tears
Your little one might be super excited about the big move one minute and then crying the next. A new bed means fun new sheets and doona covers, a bigger pillow and possibly more toys at night time – something your child can get pumped about! It will feel quite large to them though and different, so they may also be quite upset – particularly if their cot is going to a new baby sibling instead. And you might shed a few tears yourself too because after all a big bed means your little baby is growing up!
