when did you move them?

just curious when you moved your child out of the toddler bed. What did you move them into next? I have two 18 months apart, I think the next step, when they're ready of course, will either be the elder moved into a twin, or bunk beds for the two of them, both boys. just curious, thanks!

  • We never used toddler beds at all - moved them straight from crib to a twin bed with a rail around 2.

  • We've never used toddler beds. My daughter, 4, is still sleeping in her crib that converted to a daybed. Next month she'll get bunkbeds.

  • my boys are 18 months apart. they got bunk beds at 1 and 3. the older usually sleeps with the younger, even now that they are 5 and 6. the younger really slept with us until he was 2. those boys never did toddler beds.
    i have 2 yo twins, one is in a toddler bed and one is on a twin mattress on the floor. next year i will have 3 boys in a triple bunk ages3,6 and 7, and i will have a 1 yo in a toddler bed, and a 3 yo in a full.
    for us now, it is about the beds we have and the space we have : )

  • Our 2 1/2 year old is still in a toddler bed. (its spongebob, he loves it) I don't think we're going to change his bed until he outgrows it, although before we got it (after he was out of the crib) he slept in a twin (it was pretty much on the floor).

  • My boys are in 3 1/2 and 2 1/2 they are both in toddler beds. We are thinking of getting them bunk beds for Christmas. Regular twin beds would take up too much space in their room.

  • My DD was 22 months old, she passed from the crib to the bed directly but it was a bed on the floor, the Akura bed from Ikea, it's a loft bed and you can put a mattress underneath. She liked it so much that she decided to go to sleep there in her own.

  • I moved them out of the crib when they could climb out of it! I have 2 boys 17 months apart and I moved them into a double bed. I figured they would keep each other company and make them less likely to crawl into my bed and wake me up :-) They are now 8 & 10 and they still like to sleep in the same bed together!
