When to switch to a toddler bed?0 2 months ago by HaileaNicole
My son will be coming up on 13 months soon and I was wondering when a good time would be to get him ready for his big-boy bed.. He has a very good night time routine an he usually sits up and plays in his crib for about an hour before finally falling asleep ... Thoughts?
I would wait tell it is an issue of them climbing out of the crib some kids start doing it at 1 and some dont tell about 3 years old but if the kid is showing signs of trying there ready each kid is different
I would wait until at least 2 1/2 to 3 to make the big switch. You should make sure they will understand the new bed rules and arent tempted to climb dressers, playing with plugs, and other shenanigans toddlers love to get into when they are left to free roam alone. Your child will show readiness for transitioning by being verbal ability to understand the rules. Even if they start climbing out, there are a lot of solutions to stop them doing so! Your LO will be safest in the crib for a while yet!
