Now that Piglet is approaching two and a half years old she is still very much in her cot.  Whilst the thought of when we should transition her to a toddler bed is there.  I’m not in any particular hurry to complete this milestone.  However, having been through this process twice before I am keen to do this in steps rather than all at once – that is, unless she decides to make a bid for freedom and climb out of her cot.… View Post
