  • Whenever you're ready, 3 months sounds perfectly fine. I moved my son to his crib once he started trying rolling over (around 3 months). :]

  • When my son was a baby...he stayed in the basinet for about 2 months then converted to the crib.
    My daughter went to the crib at about 5 months..she was a tad bit "needier" than my son during the night,lol.

  • it was when he reached the weight limit. i think he was about 4 months old =) i thought the transition would be difficult for him but it wasn't at all. he seemed just as comfy in his crib as in his bassi.

  • I switched my son @ 2mos because he was starting to outgrow his, and he had started to sleep longer hours throughout the night.

  • I put my kids in the crib from the first night they were home - so 3 months is fine!

  • my husband assembled the crib before he was two months old - he was simply too tall for the bassinet at that time..
