when did you move your lo to a toddler bed from crib?

My son is almost 16 months old, and I think he might be ready for a toddler bed soon, as he's trying to climb out.  But I'm wondering if he's too young yet.  What's your take?

Tried at 20 months, but they wouldn't stay in bed. At 21 months, they were fine with it.

If he's trying to climb out then it's time to move him. It's a safety issue.

My 12 month old will be in her crib until she either starts to climb out or she's too heavy to lift in and out.

She's 23 months and still in a crib. I'm thinking sometime shortly after her 2nd birthday. She doesn't try to climb out (she calls out to me instead) but tonight she was trying to climb in for bedtime. Her toddler bed is waiting in the garage, I guess it's me not wanting her to grow up so fast. She is my last baby.

Calvin was 2 yrs and climbed out of his crib. Kelsey is 19 months and she's still doing fine in the crib.

Dd stayed in her crib until just b4 her 3rd b-day, then we took the front bars off (we have a convertible crib) & we put up one of those side railings that helped keep her from rolling off the mattress.

My son will be 2 on the 13th and is still happily in his crib.  My hubby and I were just talking about this yesterday and I told him when I"M READY so maybe 12, LOL.  In all seriousness if I can keep him contained until he is potty trained then I will be happy.  

if your child is climbing out of the crib they may be ready.
