Re: 14 months too soon?

First DD was 15 months because she kept climbing out of the crib. Best thing we did with her!

Just wanted to update everyone...I switched DS's crib to a toddler bed and he has slept 3 naps and 1 night without any problems in it! I am so happy I did it!

Re: 14 months too soon?

Would definitely wait as long as possible. I regret not buying another crib and putting my now toddler into a twin bed at 19 months before he and I were ready. I never had problems lifting him throughout my pregnancy (but I'm pretty healthy/active- I baby wore him and rocked him to sleep up until I gave birth), so it probably depends on how comfortable you lifting your child with the add. weight

Re: 14 months too soon?

My daughter was in a twin bed with a rail at 16 months. I'd move him to the new room before the baby comes so that he doesn't think the baby kicked him out of his room. Just make the room completely babyproof. You could have a video monitor if you're worried. I know people who don't do cribs at all but do floor beds so that their baby has to freedom to crawl and play when they wake up. I think often it's better to do it when they're young because then they usually nap and they're more likely to stay in bed and it becomes a routine and habit to go to sleep instead of playing. When they're older and starting to drop naps it's harder to get them to stay in bed. Every kid is different though.
