  • Sippy cups I switched at a year
    Pull ups not yet plus I think they are a waste of money so I probably will never do it
    Crib to a toddler bed at 18 months
    Potty training I started my DD at 2 yrs old but she wasnt ready yet so we put it off, potty training starts when the child is ready

  • sippy 1 year...actually it was the straw cups, she didn't like the sippys too much
    pull ups 21 months only at night and potty trained during the day
    toddler bed at 18 months, she was trying to climb into her crib
    potty training attempted at 18 months, gave up she wasn't ready and started again at 21 months and sucessful during the day in a week, night in 2 months.

  • Sippy cups- 9 months
    Pull-ups- Never. They don't work. I worked in a daycare for 2 years and now I am a nanny and straight underwear is easier if the child is ready. Don't force it.
    Out of crib- 18 months
    Potty training- Depends on when the child shows signs of knowing when they need to go.

  • Switch to a sippy cup? Never switched because mine were breastfed, but we started then with water in one around 6 months old

    Switch to pull ups? Never except at night after we got them day trained or if we were going on long trips in the car.

    Switch out of the crib? Never as they never slept in a crib. We coslept until they chose to be in their own bed around 3 years old.

    Start Potty training? When they showed interest which was 18 months with my first (day trained at 22 months and night at 30 months) and my second around 22 months (day trained at 24 months and night trained at 27 months).

  • sippy cup - introduced around 8 months
    crib - around 2 1/2
    pull-ups - don't bother, except at night it might be easier. It's better to wait until they are ready and go right to undies.
    potty training - I waited until they turned 3. All were trained in 3 days.
