When does a Baby go to a Toddler Bed?General — By Shannon Schmid on April 1, 2010 at 10:27 pm
My daughter is almost 20 months old, she has not yet started trying to climb out of her crib but many of her little friends have – and I know it’s possible that she will do it any day. And it’s gotten me thinking…when exactly do you change a baby from a crib to a bed, and what’s the best way to do it?
I’d love advice from those of you out there that have gone through this rite of passage. Do you have any tips on making the transition easier? Our pediatrician said that when we do make the change, that their is no reason to go to a toddler bed, that we can just go from a mattress on the floor to a big birl bed. And of course that got me thinking about proper little girl beds! I am SO not ready for that.
Of course that did not keep me from looking up kids beds!
Totally off topic, but do you wanna see a CRAZY one I found?
(And……also a bed she won’t be getting! But ummm…wow.)
Anyway… you experienced parents, or parents that are going through toddler-hood right now… do you have any wise words on making this important transition?
I’d love to hear it!
