  • We put her mattress on the floor around 18 months. That's when she started to try to climb out.

  • 4 of mine were right around 2. My 2nd stayed in his crib until almost 3 and would have stayed as long as i let him! He was (and still is) a very compliant child. Personally I see no reason to switch them to a bed until they are climbing out of their crib. The earlier you switch them, the less ready they are to follow directions (ie stay in your bed!)

  • between 18 months and 2 years. I honestly do not remember. But when they can climb out or are close enough, to me that is the time.

  • Neither kid climbed out of their crib, but my daughter tried more than my son. They both outgrew their crib at about 2. I'm talking, they had 2 inches at the top and bottom of the crib when they were stretched out fully.
