My boys will be about 16.5 moths apart when born and I plan to keep the new baby in the bassinet for about 3 months again. By the time the new baby needs a crib besides naps my oldest will be almost 20 months. I can not decide if we should get another crib or switch my son to a toddler bed. I hesitate to switch him for a few reasons. For one, I can see him just wanting to run around his room if he can get out of bed. Also, will he even be easy for a bed yet I know each kid is different, but it's a thought I'm having? Will it be too much transition for him at once to take his crib away and give to his brother, and last but least important, I don't want to "wait and see," I want the nursery and my sons room all set by spring. When did you switch your oldest to a toddler/twin bed? Regrets, things I'm overlooking? For what it's worth, the current crib converts to a toddler bed so that's always an option for when our oldest is ready for a bed if we get another crib.
