Re: At what age did you go to toddler bed?

It really depends on the kid. My son was on the bottom twin bunk starting at 18 months, and that was with no guard rail. He never fell out of the bed ever. Well, actually he's 5 now and he fell out of the bed for the first time about a month ago. Poor guy. But really it just depends. You know your kid best. I knew my son could handle it, and he did.

LOL about the 3 of them in one room, I can imagine they just want to play in there instead of sleep. Sleep is so boring.
They do play a lot. We had to take everything out of their rooms for the time being. We've gone in to find a sea of diapers or clothes from their drawers. They're learning to stay in bed since the night they unplugged their night lights.

Re: At what age did you go to toddler bed?

since he's not climbing out, how about a crib shield?

I know. Pretty scary for his mama too, I was frantically rubbing his legs to get the circulation back.

Oh I was looking for something like that! Thanks! I'm wondering if he'll just undo the velcro though.

Does anyone have this that could attest to how strong the closure is?

my daughter has one, and it tucks under the crib in several different places. She can get one or two up if I didn't tuck it back in after her nap or bedtime, but never enough to pull it all off. She turned 2 in Oct and we still use it

Skipped the toddler bed (even though the crib converts into one). DD went to a twin bed at 20 months, DS will go at about 26 months (or sooner, if his new sister wants the crib before then).

My DD was moved into a toddler bed at 21 mo's, then to a twin before she turned 3. The toddler bed was not much use to her.

My DS was moved to a twin bed (with rails) after he started climbing out of his crib at around 20 mo's - he loves it and never looked back. :-)

Re: At what age did you go to toddler bed?

My daughter was 26 months and we only moved her because I needed the crib for my son. We should have waited-it was a tough transition.

My son was 3, but we didn't do a toddler bed, we just went startight to a twin size bed and he did great with that.

That's my plan for the other 2 kiddos when they're old enough-straight to a twin. Toddler beds are overrated.

Thanks for all the replies, they really helped! Our plan is to get the crib shield and give that a try. For the $20, it's worth a shot!

And if that doesn't work, we're going to put him in a twin bed with sides.
