Well, the twins are 16 months and still in their cribs. My oldest DD was 2 when we converted her crib to a toddler bed. The twins will,go to a twin bed instead of a toddler bed at some point.

Never did a toddler bed, my DD went from crib to a mattress on the floor around 16 months. My DS has never been in a crib, as we have a family bed now.

You know they're ready when they start to try to climb out of their crib.

Thank you! That is what I thought but I wanted to know what other moms had to say.

 I switched that one early because she was climbing out of her crib and I was afraid she'd hurt herself.


Quoting vickiheitzler:

Is there a reason one of you switched one at 14 months? My son is 14 months now, but I dont know how you know when they are ready.

By 18 mos Except for one who was really early (14 mos) and the one who was really attached to her crib...lol She was 2 1/2 (the others were escape artists)

Never.

My kids went into a twin size bed between 14-18 months. I made the switch when they started to climb out of their cribs.

We did it a little bit before she turned 2 because she started trying to climb out and we couldn't move the mattress down any farther.
