When she's old enough for a "big girl" bed, I'm not sure what we'll go with, since I plan to keep that furniture for quite a while!


See that horizontal bar where it folds down? That's a launching pad for climbing toddlers. That particular design leads to early crib escape and she will need a toddler bed very early, possibly by a year old. Manufacturers have changed that design on most convertable cribs now, because it was such an escape hazzard.
It really depends on the kid. We have that bar on our crib and X is 2+ years old and has never tried to climb out. I don't think he knows he can.
I think you're right, DarkAngel. My daughter is 17 months and has never tried it. Neither did my 2 nieces or my nephew. I guess we don't have climbers in our family...LOL!
