I will lay down / sleep together with my baby until he falls asleep then only I move him to his toddler bed. He is 9 months old now and he is no problem with any bed.

I miss my oldest being in the cot, she couldn't escape and come wake me up haha. She's 3 now and I'm moving her out of her toddler bed when I move house next month. She got it when she moved in with me from her fathers so she would have been about 2 3/4

She's old enough to be in a toddler bed and old enough to understand. Talk to her about it and ask if sh'ed like to be in a big girl bed. maybe convert the crib to show her what it's like and try it for a few days. I bet she'll like being able to get out of it on her own when morning comes. I always enjoyed when my little ones climbed out of their beds and in with me for a few minutes of snuggle time in the morning.

Both of my girls were out of the crib by 1yr. They did't like the crib, so we got them a twin bed w box spring and placed it on the floor. they did'nt fall out of bed. I didn't use the todler beds cuz I heard that you have a hard time getting then into a regular bed. I skip the todler bed. I would lay w them until they fell a sleep.

I have to say first off wow! She is plenty old enough to bed in a toddler bed. My daughter is 2 1/2 & has been in a toddler bed since 18 months (she never tried climbing out of the crib). Actually now we are getting ready to switch her to a twin bed here soon since we need to convert the toddler bed back into a crib in May.
