By STARLEEN EDDY - Posted on Sep 22, 2011 0 41 I moved our son out of his crib when he turned 3. He never tried climbing out of the crib, so we had no reason to. I thought he was starting to get to old for the crib, but it was a perfect transition, he loved his new bed and would stay in it, so we did not have the constant going into his room and putting him back in his bed like we did with his younger brother who was 1 year. 5 By Megan Ferris - commented on Sep 26, 2011 0 19 I agree. My daughter is almost 2 1/2 and she doesn't climb so we sill have her in her crib. I see no reason to move her right now when she is comfortable and it is still working for us. Potty training might change things. We will find out.
