When do you move from crib to toddler bed or big bed?

Posted by   + Show Post

At what age do you move from a crib to a toddler bed/big bed?

Or if you bedshare, is there an age when you move them to their own bed?

My little one will be 18 months soon. We're debating the move to a toddler bed soon but may hold off until Christmas, we're not sure yet. With our two older ones, we moved them right around a year to a toddler bed and they transitioned well.

We bedshare for around 18 months, then cosleep until 2ish (toddler bed in our room), then when they feel comfortable we move them into the kids room in their toddler beds. Twin sized bed for 4th or 5th birthday or so.

 we wait until two. When I feel the child sleeps well and isn't in danger of suffocating and falling out.

DD went in to a toddler bed at about 11 months and a twin at 2.5.
