1. Top 10 Best Toddler Beds
2. When Do You Need A Toddler Bed?
While toddlerhood technically starts at the age of 1, usually, many parents do not switch their baby out of the crib until 18 months old, some we know even waited until baby is 2 or 3 years of age!
So really, there's no standard rule as to when is the best time to switch to a toddler bed, however, the following tips may help you decide when is the right time:
- Have you caught your little one climbing out of the crib more than once? It is perhaps time to get a toddler bed to prevent him/her from falling over and hurting himself.
- Do you have a baby on the way? Often, this is the reason parents make the switch to toddler bed so that the crib can be ready when baby no 2 (or 3, or 4) arrives.
- You decide to put an end to co-sleeping - be it it's time to train your little one to be independent, or that his/her wake up time is a tad too early for you.
