We’ve been talking lately about how it’s time to move Hailey (22 months old) out of her crib and into a big girl bed. Although she has never climbed out of her crib she is certainly tall enough to do it so I want to prevent that from happening. Plus she is tall enough to get in and out of a regular bed on her own.
The problem we are having is in trying to decide if we want her to have a toddler bed or if we should go right to a regular twin bed. The picture over on the right is what her crib looks like (that’s not actually hers because she is asleep in her bed right now so I can’t take a picture of it. This is just one I found on the Internet.) This crib can convert into a toddler bed- where the front railing would be removed and something like this would be put on the front so she wouldn’t fall out:
This piece did not actually come with her bed and from what I have read it will cost in the range of $60-$90 and take about 10-12 weeks to arrive.
Or, her bed can also convert into a twin bed. The back of her crib would become the headboard and the front panel would become the foot board. Supposedly we would have to buy a conversion kit for that as well (costing around $100). I don’t know why Rich couldn’t just bolt a regular old frame to it, but he’s going to have to look at it to see.
Anyhoo- all of that to ask for your opinions- when did you move your kids out of a crib? And did you go right to a twin bed or did you use a toddler bed?
