Parents should help a kid in making a transition from crib to bed. They should this process when the kid is big enough for his crib or is very active. Usually the age for this comes out to be 2-3 years. A convertible crib that turns into a toddler bed with the removal of the front panel can make the change seem less drastic to a toddler. Try to put the bed in the same space where the crib was, if possible. Help with the transition patiently.

To ease the transition, put your toddler' s new bed in the same place his crib used to be. Your child may find it soothing to continue to sleep with his old crib blanket, even if it' s too small. Get your toddler excited about having a bed by taking him with you to pick it out, if you' re buying it new. If you find that you' ve made the switch too soon and your toddler is upset, don' t give up right away. Encourage your child to try out the bed.

most children make the transition anytime between ages 1 1/2 and 3 1/2yrs.It' s often best to wait until your child is closer to 3,as they will adjust to the transition.you may need to move the toddler to a bed when he' s simply too big or too active to sleep in a crib.base the timing of the switch on your child' s readiness. Some children adjust readily to this change, while others have a hard time with it. Every child is different. It' s not unusual, though, for firstborn children to resist the transition. He may be very attached to his crib and all of his associations with it.
