  • 2 but I wished I would have waited until she was climbing out. She slept great until the big kid bed and now and 4 she still wont sleep throught the night.

  • My son was 2 1/2. I wanted to do it sooner, but he was such a good sleeper I was afraid to mess with that. But when we finally did it he was fine. Only the first couple nights he got out to come get me.

  • We changed my daughter's crib to a daybed when she turned 2. At my in-laws, she sleeps in a queen size bed though just fine. She loves her crib/daybed though, so we're going to use it for as long as she fits in it. She never climbed out of her crib, but on vacation this summer she slept in a queen by herself and so we figured that she was ready to transition from a crib to a big girl bed. Only problem is lately she's been coming to our room at 4am every night. I don't mind, I love sleep with her, but dh isn't too keen on it, because she talks too
