  • 2 years old with rails. They both did great! We were given beds for them and figured we would skip the toddler bed and see how they did.

  • Three years old. It was when she got her new room and was potty trained. That was one of her "treats" for being potty trained.

  • At five years old because that is when he grew too large for the toddler bed.

  • We transitioned our son when he turned one. We coslept until then though so we skipped the toddler bed and really got zero use out of the crib. It worked great and still does one year later. We lay with him, read a story, lights out and then stay with him until he is asleep.

  • We transitioned to a toddler bed at about 22 months. His crib is a convertible, otherwise we would've gone straight for a big bed with rails. He still cosleeps part of the night with us, and he hasn't fallen out of bed in about a year (knock on wood), so we felt pretty safe about him being in a big boy bed.

  • When they outgrew their cribs.

  • we just transitioned our 22 month old out of the crib into a twin bed with a bed rail. He's been in there for a bout a week - doing great! My older 3 also went to a twin/full bed at around 2.
