Has your LO upgraded to a toddler bed yet? How long ago?
How did the transition go?
Got a photo?

not yet. Right now the plan is to get him a new bed for his 2nd birthday. We transitioned my dd not long after she turned 2 and it went really well so we're going to try that again. (Unless he starts climbing out of his crib before then)
we'll probably transition to a twin bed instead of a toddler bed.

Not yet. very soon. We would like him in a bed before this baby comes. . .So we will start the transition in a few months.

Nope, we're still in a crib. When we do upgrade, we're probably getting a bunkbead since Cody and my older son share a room.

No plans at this point to do this anytime soon. We switched both our girls at 22 months and it went really well, but we had reasons (oldest fell out of the crib, middle wanted to be like her sister..); Sebastian has his own room & so far so good so we're not rushing this.

Yep, we never had her on a crib. She was about 14 months when we transitioned her from our bed. To the toddler bed, it was when we found out we were pregnant because we wanted to cosleep the new baby, but I guess that's not an issue now. Anyways she has been doing great in her bog girl bed, she is still in our room though, because we have my brother staying with us. and his boys are in her room. And I think it is nice that if she gets up in the night she can just come to our bed, but that's normally around 5 am

Eve's still in a crib, but I've been thinking of converting it to a toddler bed now that she's walking. I'll have a side rail on it, but no where near as high as it is as a crib.
I think she'll love it

There's a cute one I found roaming around FB. I wanna do this to her's eventually

No she is still in her crib. I'd like to keep her in it for as long as possible, with DD1 she was in a crib until she was 2.5 yrs old, never tried to climb out or fall out. It's nice to have a safe place to contain her still and make her settle since she is ALWAYS moving everywhere.

Nope, still in his crib. Have tossed around the idea of a big boy bed, but nothing yet. When we do though he will go straight to a full size bed so it's only one transition instead of transition from a crib to toddler then toddler to big bed.

Thank you Julka for my beautifully, perfect siggy!!

J is in a toddler bed now! I knew I was going to switch him so I wanted to wait to reply till I saw how it went a few days. Omg. Fabulous! He could flip right out of his bed already so it's not like he's gaining any new abilities really. ..now it's just a lot safer First night he got up once immediately. I gave him some more milk while he sat on my lap in the room, laid him down, & he went to sleep. ..since then he's had 2 naps & 2 more nights... both went perfect! He hasn't gotten up once. Wahoo! Check that one off the list
