  • My son had to go into one right before he turned one... He kept getting out of the crib.... & I was afraid he'd get his self hurt. My son couldn't even walk & figured out how to get out of the crib.... (& Yet to this day I wonder how he is soo smart)

  • My son turned 2 this month, and I just bought him a toddler bed (haven't set it up yet). Honestly, he was perfectly content in his crib, and I probably would have kept him in there for a while longer, but I'm pregnant and I need the crib. Not till April, but I want to get him used to his new bed well before the baby gets here...

  • my daughter was just shy of 3 1/2 ...i rushed to put my son in and had problems with him staying in bed so when it came to the second time around i said she would stay in the crib until she was climbing out, she never did climb out but we moved her out of the crib when we started night time potty training....hardly any problems with her getting out of bed just because :)
