I know our LO's are just a little over 1 year, but when do you plan to transition them to a big kid bed?
Will you buy a toddler bed? Regular bed?

We always bought them a twin bed when they turned two, and made it a big part of their 2nd birthday. We got the cheapest mattress so if it got ruined with bedwetting (I don't care how great of a waterproof mattress cover we got, my kids STILL could pee through it!) and once they are older and no longer having accidents, we got a better mattriess. But if I remember right, I think we put kid#3 in a big bed earlier because he was climbing out so often.

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

we have a crib that will turn into a toddler bed and then a twin. I figure we'll play it by ear. we co-sleep and nurse, so I have no plans to move her any time soon. I figure she'll move to her own bed when she's weaned. probably creating amonster.
Thank you GraysMama for my amazing siggy!

We tried with Hudson at 18mo and it was a collossal failure. He just was not ready, we have been gradually transitioning (he alternates from a toddler bed to a full sized with rails) for about 6 mo now (he will be 3 in Feb.)

We got one of the cribs that the sides go down into a partial side opening, so that will do until we do get a bigger bed. I don't want to jinx us, but he doesn't try and get out just yet.. he prefers to stand in the corner and just yell for us. Lol

Mara was 15 months when she went to a toddler bed because of trying to get out of her crib. She did well, she has always been a good sleeper. We just bought a car's toddler bed for Jacob and he'll get it as a christmas present. He loves to sit on his sister's bed so I think he will like to play on his bed but as for sleeping.... he only uses his crib half the night then comes to our bed to nurse. I hope he will sleep in his new bed eventually.

Thank you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

I plan to leave Bentley in his crib as long as possible. That boy moves around so much in his sleep that I know he's going to fall out of bed more than once, lol. Our crib turns into a daybed and I plan to get a siderail as well. So far he hasn't even tried to climb out though.

I don't know when we'll convert the crib to a toddler bed. We'll just be grateful to get him back in his crib at all after our cosleeping extravaganza during his illness and our move.

Probably not for a while, at least until she's 2 I bet. She wears a sleepsack, making it pretty much impossible for her to climb out. Keller was about 2 and 2 months I think, so we could have the crib for Isla when he was 2.5 he never tried to climb out and would have happily stayed in it forever.

DH built Keller a beautiful toddler bed, so Isla will get that and Keller will go into a twin or full.

Isla 10/27/10 and Keller 4/26/08
