When they can climb out of their crib, usually around two. My daughter is 22 months and still in her crib.

My oldest never tried to climb out so I kept her in there until about 3 I think.

2.  Like others said, it depends when they start crawling out 😉

My oldest was tall too, I felt to lucky that she waited so long to try to get out because keeping them in bed once you tuck them in is a whole other story.

My baby is much shorter, but definately a climber, I am guessing any day we will switch her over to a bed.

You’ll need to make the switch by the time you start potty training, otherwise she won’t be able to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

When they can climb out of the crib, otherwise keep them in there for as long as you can.

re: potty training- they will be wearing a pull-up for a little while at the beginning of potty training, so dont feel like you need to relate moving into a big bed with potty training.

I moved my daughter to a “big girl” bed right around 2 because we started potty training. She only wore pull-ups for about a week before she insisted on wearing her big girl panties. She had her own bathroom that was right across from her room so she would wake up and go right to the potty first thing.

Each child is different though.

My son was swapped to a toddler bed around a  year, because he kept climbing out of the crib! (yes, he is a monkey, not a child…).  My daughter, however, didn’t get her own bed before 2 because she kept getting her head stuck in the rails. 

The only other thing to watch for is the weight.  Each bed is different and has different weight limits.
