My almost 4-year-old sleeps in a crib sized toddler bed and loves the coziness of it. I just moved my son into a twin bed two days ago, and he just turned five! When this LO arrives she’ll turn 2 so she’ll need to be in a toddler bed anyhow. I didn’t see the point in spending money on a toddler bed that she would probably use less than a year. My two year old is in a toddler bed and she has been for a few months, but sometimes it seems like she just doesnt like her bed. I don’t blame her because it really isn’t very comfortable lol.
I got this book two weeks before the transition and only read from it a handful of times, so I m not even sure I needed it. What made you choose toddler bed over twin, or vice versa? We went with a twin bed when we did the switch last year and it has proven to be the best thing ever. My older child went from crib to bed at a couple months past his 2nd birthday. ) Anyway, if you decide to start your oldest in a twin or toddler bed, be prepared to put more effort into your nap & bedtime routines. Please don’t move your child into a bed until she is three-years-old. Two reasons why families may need to do this earlier might be a new baby on the way who will need the crib and toilet training. We ended up moving our daughter into a toddler bed at 2 years and 9 months because she was toilet trained and hating having a wet pull-up in the morning. Personally, I think providing your child with a bed that isn t too overwhelming will make the transition from crib to bed easier, so I prefer a toddler bed or a twin bed.
Toddler Sleep 101 – PART TWO – Crib to Bed Transition. I don’t know about you, but getting up all night long with a newborn and walking a 2 year old back to their room 100 times a night because they have been moved to a bed too soon does not sound like fun in my books;) If it’s at all possible (and this is exactly what we did) purchase a second crib for your toddler (even a less expensive one or second-hand one since you will only be using it for a few months or so) so that we aren’t making the switch out of necessity, before the child is ready. My personal recommendation is to start by removing a side of the crib (if that’s possible with your particular model) to get them acclimated to sleeping without the confines of a crib but without making the transition seem so drastic, and then moving them straight to a twin bed. My first two children were three years apart, but Noah was already in a bed before I found out I was pregnant about three months after he turned two. I keep telling him we have a & toddler bed already! He’s pretty independent but that’s a lot of change for a not-even-two-year-old right?

My question, then, is this: What beds did you guys select for your young toddlers? Today is a little different from the last two days of Twin Toddler Boot Camp.
