When Do You Need a Crib?

Although you can use a crib for your baby from the get-go, many parents choose to have their newborns sleep in bassinets and then typically transition their babies’ to a crib after three or four months. Even if you don’t plan on using a crib right away, consider putting one on your registry since it’s an expensive item that friends and family may want to pitch in to get for you.

Depending on your child’s weight and height, you could use a crib until they are four or five years old. However, parents usually move their children into toddler or twin beds around two to three years old. But, if your kiddo is a climber, you’ll likely make the change sooner because of safety concerns.
