What age

or guidelines to move from crib to toddler bed? When did you move your kids into toddler beds?

We transitioned ds from crib to bed at 23 months when he climbed and fell out of the crib. We have the kind of crib that the side comes off and turns into a toddler bed. So we took it off and put the bed guard up.

With dd I don't think she's anywhere near transitioning yet.

Re: What age

A little over 2, maybe 2.5 for DD - once I realized her crib was recalled it got taken down. Mind you "toddler bed" was a bit of a misnomer. I put down a double comforter, put her crib mattress on the floor and made it up. She slept on that for most of a year, and when I stopped finding her on the floor in the middle of the night when I checked on her, I had mom and dad bring down the single bed they were saving for her.

Re: What age

DS just turned two and is still in his crib. He can crawl both in and out of his crib but rarely does, so he'll stay in it until we move in a couple of months.

DD1 moved to her crib matress on the floor at 17mos b/c she climbed out of her crib. DD2 moved to a full mattress on the floor at 2.5 b/c her crib was recalled and she was to long for the pnp. I would have left them both in the crib until at least 3 if it were up to me

Re: What age

DD was 13-14 months. DS is 18 months and we're not there yet. I'm thinking 2ish for him. He's a much nicer co-sleeper than his sister and we won't move him out of his crib/our room until we're ready to night wean.

We didn't move our oldest into a toddler bed until he was 2 and a half years old. He never climbed out or got hurt, but he did climb IN the crib and would call for me because he couldn't get out!

My ds was 14 months. He jumped out of the crib. He was waking before the transition and slept all night when I moved him to a bed. I just converted the crib to a toddler bed for dd at 18.5 months. She finally is at a point where she can climb in and out of the toddler bed with no problems. She likes it a lot. I like doing the transition earlier because it goes pretty smoothly.

DD still sleeps in a crib at her daddy's and she is 3. She moved out of the playpen at my house at around 2.5. I don't think there is a real age per say. Moreso when the kid is ready. I wasn't in a rush to fight it so I just waited until she was too heavy for the playpen.

I agree with Anna - it's just whenever the kid is ready.
