When it is time to switch to a toddler bed. Emmalee just doesn't like to sleep in her crib. We got her a new crib that converts in to todder/day bed about 4 months ago and she just doesn't like it she rather sleep in the big bed. So im just wondering how to know if shes ready.

My daughter hated the toddler bed. She overtook my bed from 10 months until she got a big bed of her own.

My kids never climed out of their cribs but with my first son I switched him to a toddler bed at 19 months... my second I skipped the toddler bed and went straight to twin at 20 months

DD has been sleeping in a big bed for as long as she could safely crawl out of it.

If she sleeps better in the toddler bed then go for it! Just make sure you either have a little railing, or move everything away from the bed so she doesn't hurt herself falling.

ds was 14 months when we moved him because he hated his crib. DD is 14 months and i dont plan to move her until she begins to dislike her crib.
