Big Boy/Girl Bed — The Bump
Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Big Boy/Girl Bed

so, when did you swap to the big boy/girl bed? My neighbor had a daughter a few weeks after I had AJ last year and I noticed tonight that they had the crib on the side of the road. Now, I suppose it's possible they just got a new crib for some reason. But it made me wonder: when's the right time to get rid of the crib? Is there a right time? I don't remember (been nearly 10 years since I had to do this!)

  • We started today with nights. It's going good so far. We have done naps in the bed off and on for a few months. I didn't push it, I let him decide when he wanted to sleep in it.

    I just bought DD a twin mattress/box springs yesterday.  (She turned two last week).  We tried to get her to take a nap in it today.  It didn't work.  I figure I have about seven weeks to get her in the big girl bed before DD2 shows up.

    If we weren't having DD2 in July, I would keep DD1 in the crib a while longer.

    I don't think there is a right age to do it.  It depends on when your LO is ready.

    I agree with this.  DD is 18 months, and there's no way I'd have her in her own bed right now. Personally, I can't see even starting the transition until she's at least 2.

  • dd1 was almost 3 when she switched. dd2 will be the same. there's no way she'd be okay in a bed. im laughing thinking about it.
