I got a toddler bed at a consignment sale on Saturday. Can you believe we've made it all the way to child #8 without one?! Everyone else has been perfectly happy in their crib until we move them into an actual bed, usually a little before 3. When younger siblings have come along before that pint, we've always been able to just move the older one into a different room (and into a different crib--we have 3, LOL), and the baby moves in to the nursery once he or she starts sleeping reliably through the night, which for us is usually around 8 weeks (exception, of course: Micah).
But now we are plum out of other rooms for older siblings to move into! Drew is still sleeping in our closet in a little pack-n-play we're borrowing from the McC's. Micah and Drew have to become roommates at some point, because that is the only slot left open right now! The room is not really set up well for a twin bed and a crib, plus we will eventually get bunk beds for them, so I really didn't want to get a twin bed. When I saw this toddler bed at the sale, I was thrilled! I even bought a new crib sheet at Target!
