  • My oldest went into a twin bed at 18 months because I was pregnant with my second child and I didn't want to get a second crib for a short period of time. My middle one went in at 18 months because he kept climbing out of his crib. My youngest was 2 and we were moving into a new house.

    I think you have to look at your child and see how they will be.

    Good Luck!

  • Mine went from crib to a twin sized, I just put the mattress on the floor for safety. My first DD was 15 months and my second DD was 18 months.

  • She was about 18 months old, maybe a little younger. She refused to be in her crib, just screamed and screamed. Being in my bed is not an option, so we got her a toddler bed.

  • I moved all 3 when they started walking, and moved them to a Queen sized bed with no rails. toddler beds are a waste of money when they grow out of them in a few years.

  • Alexis, was it hard to keep her in bed once she learn she wasn't "trapped"? What about in the morning?

  • when they started or could climb out of the crib. as for keeping them in bed i didnt have that much of a problem because they always slept with the door closed and they couldnt open doors yet when they went into a toddler bed.
