At what age should my son start sleeping in a bed?

HI maree
At what age should my son start sleeping in a single bed? He is 18 months old and starting to grow out of the cot.
Thanks

Answer: Hi Megan, There is no real age, whenever it suits you really. If he is growing out of it then change him to a bed now, a side rail is recommended. My son changed on his 3rd birthday and my niece is 2 1/2 and went into a big bed last week, some mums need the cot for new babies and it can be earlier. Cheers, Maree
