Why is he hitting his crib against the wall? How is he strong enough to shake it that much? Kids vary in their development so it's hard to say when your son will be ready for a toddler bed. My daughter refused to sleep in her crib when she turned 15 months old. We converted it into a toddler bed and she did great. My son was 18 months old when he went into the toddler bed and I was surprised that he was ready. I thought for sure that he would get out of bed to play or come out of his room instead of going to sleep, but he did very well and even fell asleep by himself at naptime.
He has my crib from when i was a baby so its an older chrib hes a pretty strong little boy he hitts it against the wall when hes ready to get up or if he is throughing a fit cuz hes fighting sleep.  I just dont want him to hurt himself so that is why im asking when to swith beds
He should not be in a crib that old. Older cribs do not meet the current safety standards. Having him in an old crib puts him at risk for serious injuries. Cribs, car seats, play pens, etc. should not be used if they are more than 5 years old. When it comes to baby products, the newer the better.Get your son a toddler bed with a guard rail and see how he does. I switched both my kids before they were 2 and they did great. My son will be 2 next month and he's now in a twin sized bed because he kept getting his arms and legs stuck in the slats of the toddler bed. He loves it, stays in bed all night and can get up when he's ready. No tantrums, no crying.
