Signs Your Toddler is Ready for a Big Kid Bed

Think your tot is ready to ditch his crib? Here are three signs that confirm he definitely is!


Kids are ready for a big kid bed between the ages of 18 months and three years, but how do you know exactly when it's time? Here are three signs your munchkin is ready to ditch the crib. First sign is the most obvious. Your tike expresses her eagerness for a big kid bed. When it comes to switching sleep spots, your child often knows best. Another sign is, she's starting to scale her crib. If you see this happening, it's time to make the switch. The last thing you want is her climbing over the rail, which could lead to serious injury. Finally, if your child is potty trained, she's ready for the next milestone. Keep in mind, though, that you should avoid asking your tot to make such a big transition when other major events are happening. That may include the first day of pre-school, or the birth of a new brother or sister. Don't worry if your toddler isn't loving her big kid bed the first time. You can always bring back the crib for a couple of months before you try again. [BLANK_AUDIO]
