Re: When to move to a toddler bed...

Then baby proof big time if you can move all the stuff out and bolt things to the wall or keep him in the crib. Worst case, get an Ikea or other crib for $100. I was worried about that too but we baby proofed and pulled a lot of stuff out of the room. I still don't have a closet door on but for some reason he never goes in there. I only have plastic hangers just in case.


Mom to my wonderfully sweet toddler who is the joy of our lives. :

Re: When to move to a toddler bed...

We moved DS1 into his big boy bed when he was 15 months old because we just moved to a new house and I was due in 3 months and so we decided that since it was a new house he deserved a change and we also didnt want to set up the crib in his room only to take it down and bring it to his new brother's room.
He adjusted very well. We used side rails and just made sure that his room was baby proofed. We also put an open toybox in the corner of his room.
I don't know it worked for us and he loved the freedom.
He used to wake me up so early when he was in his crib but as soon as we brought him into the big boy bed he'd quietly play with his toys in the morning and let me sleep for a little while longer
