ok my lo will be 14 months old on the 8th and she is able to get on and off the couch, and my bed (which is sitting on the floor) with no problems. I was thinking of buying a toddler bed for her for her but when I brought this up to my mother and grandmother ( use to be a health care nurse and nurse to a pediatrician) they both said to wait tell she can understand that she is to stay in bed when she is put there to sleep ( about 2-3 years old). I also have other family members saying if she can get on and off the furniture by herself then she should be sleeping in a toddler bed (One of my sisters has a 16 month old boy who was in a toddler bed at 12 months old). My Question is When is the right time to move from a crib to a toddler bed?
