Wondering if it’s time to transition your child from a toddler bed to a kids twin size bed? Some parents make the switch at around the third birthday, while others wait until age five or six. But how do you know when your child is ready? Find out below.
While it will be different for every child, kids typically switch to a twin bed between the ages of three and four. But keep in mind that age is not the only determining factor in figuring out if it’s time for your little one to move to a twin bed. Below are three additional considerations to help make this decision:
Your child is uncomfortable in the toddler bed. If your child keeps hitting the boards while moving around at night or ends up sleeping with their feet dangling off the bed, your child has outgrown the toddler bed.
If you’re moving to a new home or redesigning your child’s room, this is the perfect time to get a twin bed that will match the new decor and last for many years.
A younger child needs a toddler bed. This can be a great time to make the switch.
When your little one is ready to make the transition from a toddler bed to a kids twin bed, you’ll find great options at KidKraft.
Kids twin beds are compact but spacious enough to comfortably fit a variety of ages and sizes. This means that this first “big kid bed” can last into the teen years! We carry two main twin bed options: The Raleigh Twin Bed (in espresso) and The Addison Twin Bed (in both espresso and white).
However, if you feel your child may have a more difficult time making the transition to a bigger bed, getting a twin trundle bed addition may be the ideal option. You’ll be able to pull out a bed from under your child’s, providing him the comfort of having you near but without you having to sleep in the same bed. And as your child gets older, this is a fun set up for sleepovers!
