I switch between 18 months and 2
we never used a toddler bed ... all of ours went straight to a twin size bed.
My second switched at 9 months. She was walking at 8 months and could climb on and off and out of anything by 9 months. Since she was still little we did a toddler bed for her. My first was a year old and if I'd been able to I'd have just gotten a twin bed but a toddler bed was a lot cheaper. :-)
both my kids went to toddle beds at that age no worries
When he can climb OUT of his crib. Our daughter was around 15-17mos. We skipped the toddler bed and went straight to the twin bed (just put up the bed rails on the side b/c she's a wiggler). Now, my nephew was in a toddler bed by age 12mos b/c he is a super climber! Just depends on the child.........
We waited until they could actually climb out of their crib. My oldest was 19 months and my youngest turns 19 months today and is still in his crib. He's a climber but has no interest in climbing out of his crib.
