My little miracle is 2 and a half years. Im thinking of taking him out his cot & put him in 'Big bed'.. How do i make the change without traumatising him?

We just did this! We just put the mattress on the floor in the corner of the room (so two sides there) and then put a child rail (you know the kind you put on twin beds or bunkbeds?) so he has three sides still. He loves it! It takes a little time to adjust, have him move some of the furniture (or blankets or pillow) with you. Talk a lot about it. Expect him to get out a few times the first few days. You can do it! YAY!

I had to move my son to a big boy bed before he was two, as his little brother needed the crib. He wasn't tramatized in the least. We stayed in the room with him until he was comfortable enough to go to sleep, and that was it!

I took my kids to the shop to choose there new bed spread for there new big bed.

Both wanted to go to bed as soon as we got home to test it out LOL

In my case it was that easy
