  • I'd say once they outgrow the crib and they figure out how to get out of it.

  • When my daughter was 2 years old, we skipped the toddler bed and went straight to twin bed. I bought a rail and put it on the side until she was 3 and then she didn't want it anymore. She is now 4 and has never fallen from the bed.

  • DD was 18 months old when she moved toa toddler bed, 2 to a twin with rails. Theres not much difference between a crib and toddler bed other thant hey can easily escape! We knew it was time to change when she was restless at night and jumping in it during nap times. I cant imagine those matresses are terribly comfy!

  • As soon as they knew how to escape the crib. Wasn't worth them falling and hurting themselves. Usually around 2 years old, but my kids did it at 15 & 18 months. A bit of a problem keeping them in bed, but eventually they realize it's what big kids do and they are okay with it.
