Switching to toddler bed
December 10, 2012 at 7:17 AM
When do I switch my son to a toddler bed? He is starting to climb on things, so I'm afraid he will start to climb out of his crib, but he is only 9 months old and I feel this is too young. Thoughts?

    We switched at age 2 for both our boys.
    They outgrow toddler bed very fast, not worth the money in my opinion. I'd save up and get a good twin bed that can grow with them for years.

    Well our crib switches to a toddler bed then a full size bed. Did you have issues with your kids climbing out of the crib?

    Not really . If he is climbing out I think it's probably a good time to switch then.

    Ok. He hasn't tried to climb out of that YET, but he's climbing onto sofas and stuff, so it's coming soon I think. I'll keep an eye on it and when he starts trying to climb the crib ill switch- thanks :)

    We switched our DS when he was 18 months, but he has always been a very careful child. We are going to wait longer for our DD, and probably start her with a crib mattress on the floor. She is a tornado, lol :) She climbs on her brother's bed and dives off headfirst. She has done it 10 times, gotten hurt a few times, and still hasn't learned where/what the "edge" is. She is my "danger, danger" child...Sigh... :)

    Is your mattress lowered all the way down?


    We switched our kids when they started crawling out. My daughter is 2 and still sleeps in her crib, for now. We plan on setting up her toddler bed in January.
