You should wait until she walks well on her own. My 16 months old started sleeping in a toddler's bed about a 6 weeks ago. I felt that it was extremely necessary because she climbed out of her crib and fell on the floor. It wasn't very easy, because she would wake up at night and knock on the door. I would simply put her back to bed and leave. she understands that she has to sleep and has to do it alone. Having a crib is nice, do it while you can.

I have three kids, fourth on its way in 8 weeks. they are 4 yrs, almost 3yrs and 18 months. I put them into a bed once they were walking on there own and when they didn't seem to enjoy their cribs anymore. ie: not sleeping through the night. I skipped the toddler bed and put them straight into a twin bed. If worried about falling out of bed then I just put the mattress on the floor for awhile till they learned where the ends of the bed was, but miraculously I didn't have any problems with that. They all loved their big beds and sleep through the night real well. All my kids were around 15 months when they switched beds.

I would wait until she can fully walk on her own, that way if she gets up at night she doesnt hurt herself trying to walk. i put my son in one at about 16 months and he didnt sleep in it all night for the first couple of weeks.
