Both my girls learned to crawl out of their crib by 18 months. So, not wanting them to fall from crib rail height we put them in a bed. We transitioned right to a twin sized bed for both of them. I didn't see the point of buying an extra bed for a short period of time.

Just a caution about bunk beds, think about when you will need a child in the top bunk and the age of the child. Current recommendations are that the child should be at least 6 before sleeping in a top bunk. Personally though, I love bunk beds and even bought DD2 a set even though we don't have anyone sharing rooms any more. Right now we have left the ladder off so no one can climb up there and its just a space for her stuffed animals to sleep, eventually we'll put the ladder on and let her up there but I've seen way too many broken arms and collar bones from falls of the top bunk.
