  • My oldest was 4 and my middle child was also 4...For us it was a space issues so we kept them in a toddler bed as long as possible.

  • My LO turned four on Friday. She is quite tall, but still sleeps in her toddler bed. She also has a twin bed in her room waiting for her. She just prefers the toddler. It is closer to the floor and she still fits and has plenty of room. Although she does fill her bed with stuffed animals and dolls. The only reason I want to change her is so that I can get rid of the toddler bed and move the furniture around in the bedroom.

  • Neither of my first two had a toddler bed, they just moved right into a big kid bed when we needed the crib for the next one (at around 2 years old for each of them). For the youngest we got a new crib and I have converted it into the toddler bed. He will stay in it until he A) outgrows it, B) We need it for a new kid, or C) Move somewhere and the bedroom situation changes.
