So I have realized my 1 year old wont sleep in a toddler bed.. But she climbs out of her cot. She self settles an goes to sleep in her cot. She won't sleep anywhere else but a cot.. But she climbs out. What an I suppose to do?

Put her to sleep in the cot with the side down so if she climbs out she won't fall far.

Or just put her straight into a big bed.

FWIW our son spent a few months sleeping on a mattress the floor.

Putting a sleeping bag on will make it just about impossible to climb out. There are summer weight ones around. My DD is 22 months and can't get her leg up enough with sleeping bag on.

A sleeping bag is a great idea :-) thank you!!
123tree - have tried the side down thing, she climbs out straight away. And it's still a pretty High fall which I'm scared of :-/
