  • because she is climbing out, NOW
    wouldn't want her to fall and get hurt.

    mine all switched at about 18 months because that was when they started climbing out.

  • my first DD was 11 months old because she was trying to climb out at 11 months my second DD was I believe 14 maybe 16 months old. So 2 years is not 2 young

  • As soon as she is starting to climb out of her bed it's time for a toddler bed. My son was in a toddler bed at 14 months.

  • My first was 2 and my second and third were 3, but they weren't trying to get out of their crib.

  • 4..i joke you..but I do like cribs and try and put that off. I went to the step two twin bed with storage under it. Wasn't cheap, but the kids are up high (they climb a ladder) and really saves my back.

  • 18mo for my 1st dd, she hated sleeping in her crib so we tried the toddler bed to get her to stay in her own bed...didn't work that well but at least she started out the night sleeping in her own bed @@ lol

  • We're going to switch ours at age 2. Our crib's lowest levels are only a few inches from the ground, so there's no way she'll ever be able to climb out. Two seems mature enough to me to be able to handle the new bed.
