  • My son was 11 months old. We needed his crib for my niece and he never slept in it anyway.

  • Age? Try month,,,lol. ds started walking at 9 months old. He was climbing out of his crib at 8 months. Had to transfer him over to a toddler bed at that point. I spent a lot of nights sleeping in his room when he was that little, it made me a nervous wreck

  • Straight to a twin from the crib, toddler bed IMO is a waste of money.

  • We chose a twin w/ rails instead of a toddler bed, but she switched at 25 months.

  • I have already been given a toddler bed by a friend that her grandson grew out of. My son is only 8 months by the way.

  • I took the side off her crib at about 1 year-old. Then we went straight to a twin bed at 2! I agree with whomever said the toddler bed is a waste of money (unless the crib converts) -- In that case, I would say around a year, or whenever she starts climbing out of it!

  • around 20 months. Needed the crib for new baby and wanted a few months of transition time. He was completely ready to switch and I never had any issues. I just put his matress on the floor so if he rolled out it wouldn't hurt.

  • I started transitioning my son about age 2, We were given a toddler bed, otherwise he would've gone directly to a twin.
