    Toddler Bed vs. Twin Bed

    Alright, I'm about to pull my hair out here. We are moving soon and my husband and I are trying to decide if we want to put our 21 mo old (she'll be almost 2 by the time we settle into where we are going) into a toddler bed or a twin bed. As far as I can tell, I have these pros for each type:

    Toddler Bed:
    -can use the same crib mattress
    -less expensive

    Twin Bed:
    -will last for much longer
    -I can get into bed with her if need be

    So, I'm asking for opinions/advice on the topic. What would you do or what did you do when it came time to move baby out of the crib?

    Our crib turns into a toddler bed so we just used that. If we didn't have that then we would have gone to a twin bed and just bought the side rails. They last longer and you'll save more money in the long run because you won't have to buy two beds.

    I remember being two and having a toddler bed. I used to climb over the fence in the mornings. I would buy a twin and push it against the wall. When I was about four I got a full size bed.

    Re: Toddler Bed vs. Twin Bed

    Thank you ladies! Our crib can double as a toddler bed and I think we'll use that for a little while longer. The reason this came up was that the kids share a room and I plan on giving them each a room this time. Doing that, one of them needs furniture and I decided to give Arabella white furniture instead. However, I think we can live with a darkbrown bed in a light room for a bit . At least until we settle in. Thanks again!

    I think it makes more sense to get a twin since you can use it longer, but we got our oldest daughter the toddler bed because she wanted one. It was more "her size" if you KWIM.

    My niece's went straight to the twin bed though and had no problem

    if your child doesn't care... i'd go for the twin. my daughter had just seen the toddler bed and became obsessed with it lol.
