I know that most kids get out of their crib around the age of 2 but honestly I did not want Trevor out of his crib until now. I think now he is ready and will appreciate it more so last night we turned his crib into a big boy bed and.........he LOVED it! He was so excited that he could get in and out all by himself because now he is a big boy.
My main concern was if he would roll out during the night so last night was a trial night. Things were fine and then around 2am I woke up to a tump and then a little boy crying and sure enought I opened his door and there he was laying on the floor. He cried and said "mom I fell out of my bed, now what". Once I explained to him he was not in a crib anymore and that he needed to be careful or he would fall out he went right back to sleep. Not bad for a first night.
The nice thing about this bed is that that you can also make it into a full sized bed too for when he gets older.
