  • My son went into one when he refused to sleep in his crib at 10 months old. We put rails on them and took them off at about 1.5-2 yrs.

  • My youngest was 18 months when we moved him into a twin bed because I was pregnant with my second child and I didn't want to have two cribs. With my middle child we moved him into a twin bed at 12 months because he was flipping out of his crib and I didn't want him to get hurt.

    My youngest was moved into a twin bed at 2 years because we moved into a new house and it was the right time.

    I think you have to do what you feel is best and also what your child can handle. For me my kids didn't get out of bed all the time. Once they were in bed they stayed there.

    Good Luck!

  • My children were all under the age of 2 when they started climbing out of their cribs, so they were put in to twin beds.
