It seems like these things were just so far away! Now they're fast approaching? What are you plans? Some people do the toddler bed at 18 months. Our little beaver has destroyed his crib and continues to bite on it so sad to say we might be on the earlier side with the toddler bed. He hasn't tried to escape but he sleeps on a cot at daycare so he has experience. As for the car seat, I would love to hold out until 2 but am thinking of asking the pedi for advice. My DS tries to escape his seat and constantly turns to look at us and talk to us while we are driving (he is in the middle). It's becoming unsafe and I think car trips could be more pleasant if we just turned him. So what are your plans? And please everyone be respectful to others.
