I think she will be fine too and think your right to do it before the other baby come along, all my daughters were 12 months when they went in to beds and have been just fine, just make sure you double check on the baby proofing as she will be able to get into more.

I think at 18 months it would be fine. Especially as toddler beds are low to the ground. Expect her to get up quietly some mornings and get into things, though.
