  • My daughters were both about 2 yrs when we moved them to toddler beds. Rule of thumb is when they can climb out to move them from a crib. I think a crib can hold a 36 month old, but rarely does a child not climb out before then

  • My ds was 2 and a half. He never tried to climb out of his crib and was still small enough, but he started wanting me to read him bedtime stories. Instead of us cuddling up in my bed and reading, i put up his toddler bed (car bed). Now i can sit on the floor next to him and read with him laying in bed. He hasn't gotten up to roam the house or anything lol

  • i just switched my daughters bed the other night she is 2. let me tell you it was a good thing. before she hated going to bed (in her crib) but now that she has a "big girl bed" it's so easy to get her to go to sleep. she loves that she can get up and down! and she even makes it herself.

  • I moved the boys before they turned 2 because they were climbing out. The girl will be 3 in April and she is still in the crib. If she is still not climbing out by her 3rd birthday then I will move her anyway.
