I have 22 month twin girls and so far they have never tried climbing out of their cribs (Lucky me) and they sleep in their cribs at night without any issues. I was wondering, even though they are not climbers, is there a suggested age that I should take them out of their crib regardless if they are doing well in the cribs? I don't want to hold them back and I am thinking the toddler beds will give them a sense of independent that the crib may not offer. However, the good thing I love about the crib is that their room is on the other side of the house from ours and it would terrify me to think that in a toddler bed they could wake up and wander the house while we are asleep. Someone suggested to me that maybe I could switch to the toddler beds but put a saftey gate at their door to keep them from wandering. Wouldn't that defeat the whole "independence" thing?
Any ideas or suggestions?
