The twins never seemed to stay in their crib the entire night. Mum and Dad were frustrated. “I believe they’re trying to tell us something,” said Mum, yawning into her coffee. “They’ve outgrown that crib,” said Dad. “But we have no time to look in the shops for suitable toddler beds or kid’s furniture.”
It’s a common question for Mum’s whether you’re a first time Mum or it’s your 3rd child – when to transition your toddler out of the cot? There is certainly no hard and fast rule about what is right, you do need to read the signs and judge it on your child – some will be ready very early others not until closer to 3 years. Other circumstances might also come into effect for example our situation where we don’t have a room for our second and needed to wait until we logistically decide how we are going to fit both girls comfortably in a room together.
