Lily is 18 months, we have a convertible crib with the changing table/dresser attatched. She now climbs up the changing table. We walked in on her one night sitting on top crying. We took the side rail down to make it a toddler bed but she is still able to climb up. I do have a friends regular crib but, With her doing that I know its a matter of time before she climbs out of a crib. Plus she has tried climbing out already.
However everyone else thinks she should stay in her crib. I feel like shes ready. Plus she likes to play after her naps, so I think if she is in a toddler bed she will get up and play in her room until she is ready to come out.
Is it time for a toddler bed? and how should we make the transition?

My daughter is 2 and she climbed out of her crib a couple of times and hasn't since. My mom got a great deal on a very nice twin bed, which was going to be for my son but he doesn't want it. We are going to give it to my little girl and transition her into it somehow. I have of yet to see it, so I have no clue how far off the ground it is. My parents have it and they need us to get it. Only way it will fit in my little ones room is if we take out the crib, she has an armoire in her room.I think she will be a fight to sleep in her big girl bed. My oldest 2 took right to the bed and were never a problem with getting up and playing when it is bed time. She is going to be a different story but she is ready for a big girl bed. Your daughter is ready for a big girl bed, good luck! Wish I had advice but my oldest 2 never gave me problems staying in bed.
