  • my oldest- tried just before 2 and it did not work out. tried again a few months later and still had to put a gate up by her door cause she would constantly get out of bed.

    my middle - just turned 2 and has been sleeping well in one for about 3 months.

  • Cry it out method....done the right way.. it doesn't have anything to do with letting them scream forever.

  • Oh yeah we did that with his baby bed. I just didn't know thats what it was called. He has slept in his own bed since he was 2 months old. I am just scared to transition to toddler bed.

  • We moved my oldest at 15 months. It was safer for him since he was starting to climb out. It worked out pretty well. We did put a gate up in front of his door just incase he did get up before us we would know he was in a safe area and would get to him right after we heard him up playing.
