Your toddler has almost outgrown her crib, and you’re thinking about moving her to a toddler bed. Is your toddler ready?

Here are some tips for deciding if your child is ready for a toddler bed.

Your child is ready to move out of the crib when the mattress is at its’ lowest, and they start climbing out of the crib. Some experts recommend waiting as long as possible to move your toddler to a toddler bed. Toddlers have a hard time understanding boundaries, and without the railings, the big bed has some pretty vague boundaries.

Other experts feel as long as the child is tall enough, or the bed low enough to the floor, then it’s safe to move your child to a toddler bed. If you do choose a higher bed, toddler bed rails are a must.

Some parents have chosen the option of not investing in a toddler bed, and buy instead a toddler travel bed. That saves them the money on something that won’t be used for long, while the toddler travel bed can get use for a couple more years.

Whatever you choose, you can make the move easier by letting your child choose their very own toddler bed sheets. You’ll want to check whether the new bed can use the crib mattress, or whether or not you’ll need to buy a separate toddler crib mattress.

You can help ease your toddler’s transition into the new bed by making bedtime a set time, and setting clear expectations about how you want your child to use their new toddler bed.
