  • I moved my son into a bed when he learned how to climb out of the crib.

  • My son moved himself into a toddler bed (I have a little mini-blog about it on here called "Easiest toddler bed transition EVER") around 19 months old

  • Mine is 23 months and still in her crib.

    The crib is the safest place for a curious, wide awake toddler in the middle of the night. If your little one can't or won't climb out (we have a crib tent to prevent it), leave them in the crib. Being in the crib longer won't hurt his chances of getting into Harvard. Being in a bed sooner won't make it any easier to get into Harvard.

    It's not a contest of who's child was in a bed soonest. It's a safety issue. Move them when the crib is no longer safe and they are responsible enough to have free reign of their room/the house all night long.

  • "Move them when the crib is no longer safe and they are responsible enough to have free reign of their room/the house all night long."

    Just remember that this can be easily solved by making sure their room is baby proofed. My son's room is completely babyproofed and we keep a gate in his doorway. That way if he DOES choose to get up and play (which he never does) then he's safe.
