  • My son will be 3 in March and he has a car bed that he has been sleeping in for about 3 months now so at 2 1/2 he made the transition. Didnt even make a fuss and half the time he just goes in and goes to bed all on his own. It seemed almost too easy...not potty traing for me...a whole different story lol

  • We never used a toddler bed for any of my 5 kids. I switched them all to either a twin or full size bed around 2 and put side rails up.

  • I put both my kids into a twin bed after their crib. Actually, I tried a toddler bed with my oldest & he hated it, & I found he did better in a twin. So, when it came time to take my youngest out of the crib I just put him in the bottom bunk of the twin bunk beds.

  • We switched to a twin with siderails the day I caught my daughter scaling the wall of her crib after a nap. I think she was almost 2.
