There is no set time as to when you should move your son to a bed. It all depends on... is he trying to climb out, are you working on potty training, etc.? My 1st daughter was 2 yrs. old when we moved her to a toddler bed & 3 when we got her a twin bed. She climbed out of her crib one day and shortly after we moved her to a toddler bed. We were also already working on potty training and she was communicating very well. My 2nd daughter on the otherhand, who's 22 mos. old now, definitely doesn't seem ready for a big girl bed. We haven't started potty training and she doesn't really talk well yet... she's not to the point my 1st daughter was at that age. I won't be moving her to a big bed unless she starts to climb out of her crib. I think you will know when your son is ready.
