How long did it take you child to adjust from the crib to a bed?

My dd is 21 months old and has learned to climb in and out of the crib and pac n play. We have decided she needs to be in a bed and I was just wondering how long it took your little ones to make the transition. Also any tips to make it easier?

  • All three of my children adjusted right away. My 3 1/2 year old was great! He loved his car bed and laid down in it the first night.

  • My daughter fell out a couple times before she got used to her toddler bed. Its only a couple inches off the ground, but I put a thick blanket down to soften her fall

  • my son only slept in a crib 3 or 4 times EVER! he slept in the pack in play, until about 20 months, after that i got him a bed. his dad threw a fit and i said he fucking needed it! all in all it took about 6 months for him to adjust to where i didnt have to get up and put him back into his bed. but i had let him sleep with me when he was a baby. he never had his own bed till then.
