did your child move from their crib to a toddler bed or big bed?

My first 2 were about 17 months. I had my first 3 in just over 3 years, so I put them in a toddler bed before the new baby, so that I could put the crib away for a bit, to then bring it out again after the baby was out of the cradle, so they wouldn't feel like the baby was "stealing" their bed.
My 3rd was 24 months (she was moving out for her sister), and last year when my 4th was just over 2 I broke the crib while moving it around, so that was that for her.

Looking back, I can't believe I got them to sleep and stay in a bed at 18 months old.

I don't have older children....but......

My SIL's crib changed into a toddler bed, so they went to that, and then a big bed.

My sister had a mini real bed that had sides to it to put the toddler in!

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

My son was 16 months old when he transitioned from a crib to a toddler bed. We moved into a new house at that time and I just didn't want to put up his crib again. He did very well and we had very few problems.

This is going to sound odd, but my oldest dd went into a toddler bed at 10 months. No kidding. She HATED the crib so we bought a toddler bed and put it next to our bed, where she slept for about 3 years.
We put our son in a toddler bed at about 18 months. Then we moved him to a big bed at 3 years old.

I co-slept with Zach. With Xan I plan to move him to a toddler bed when he starts to learn to climb.

My DD who is 4 1/2 years old went into a day bed at about 2 years old I think.

Alex went in to his toddler bed between 18 months and 2 years old. He was climbing out of the crib for a little while so we felt it was definately time to move him.....
He was about 3.5 when he graduated to a double sized bed!

Emily was one month shy of 2 when we switched her from crib to big girl bed(and I mean BIG,double bed)....she did GREAT! She was never a crib climber,only once and never again. With Ryan though he already seems to want to explore the world of climber...so we may get him a toddler bed first rather then jump right into a big bed...probaly make the switch around 15-18mos....but that all depends too on how he is at the time....
