    Where to buy a baby's cot in Udon Thani?

    Does anyone know where I can buy a cot in Udon Thani as I'm getting a bit hacked off with being woken up every 20 mins by the little monkey coming into my room?

    Ta.

    Nail his feet to the floor, that should do it.

    I was thinking about either string, duct tape or lots of those small rubber bands.

    Maybe I should have a poll?

    Allow him in, he is obviously sulking for a papa.

    He does come in. We don't shut any doors so he knows he can always get to us, but 10 times a night is a bit too much. I told the Midget not to get up, but to just tell him to go back to bed, but will she bloody listen?! I told him once and we didn't hear a peep from him until 6am...

    She does most of it. I'm just there as a backup for when he laughs at her admonishments.

    Why Udon?
    Buy a baby listener / speaker.
    Shut the door.
    Sleep easy.

    Mate your lucky that the baby is not parked in the bed with you which is the norm here in Thailand.

    If your not given a cot buy a conventional standard single bed with base, stick the mattress on the floor and when he is old enough stick the mattress on the base.

    Cots and baby furniture, prams etc is a waste of money as the little blighters grow out of them so fast.

    And good luck mate!

    .
    You keep the cots and furniture for their children.

    My grandchildren have all used the same big old wooden cot that their mother and her sisters used which was their father's.

    ^ I have spent a fortune on baby's stuff over the years and invariably give most of it away.

    Unfortuantely space in Asia is at a premium Lil and finding room to store anything unused is a real headache.

    Of course we keep clothes, books and other memorabilia and to pass it on to the next generation.

    The reason I want a cot was so the little bugger can't get out and wander around the house at night; I thought that was obvious.

    A cot is just a small bed, what you want is a baby CRIB, that has a picket fence around it so he will not fall off or wander off,

    Or is this more of the brit, biscuit/cookie/scone/cracker bullshit

    look at this link, these are fucking cribs

    Baby Cribs - Convertible & Portable Baby Cribs, Baby Crib Sets

    and I see it is more of you guys just not speaking English

    Penney Hames answers:

    There is no set time that you should get rid of your child's cot and put him in a bed, although most children make the move sometime between ages 18 months and three and a half

    KidKraft Boat Toddler Bed Cot - 76251


    Here, buy him one of these,, if you do not wanta crib, which at 18 mos is to old for a crib and the right age for an ass kicking when he comes wandering and watches his mama giving his papa head in the middle of the night,

    ^ Were you dropped on the head as a baby?

    The door is open so that the kids doesnt get scared and any major screaming fits can be heard by parents I would think.

    We've had a breakthrough.

    If I put him back to bed, he stays there all night after a few mins of crying. He knows Mum is a soft touch and I'm a big bully. I wonder how long it'll last before he starts ignoring me as well?

    As I have stated before, you have to be consistant and never vary one iota from your previous rule or order, when he pushes the envelope, do not allow it, soon he will be setting on your lap and trust you more than anyone else because he know what you do is hard and fast and he will believe in you, show him all the love you can, and he will grow to love you as no other because he can trust you.
    Talk things over with him when a rule is layed down, even tho young that will start his thinking process and is a lot better to raise them with at least a lirttle dialog in the rule making and they do believe that they has something to do with making the rule,, maybe a little wool over the eyes trick, but it makes them think and believe that they do carry a little weight.
