Transitioning to a Big Girl/Boy Bed

by Gillian

When your baby is ready to transition from the crib to a bed parent’s often consider a toddler bed. I do not recommend this unless your crib can convert to a toddler bed or you have very limited space. Your child will most likely not spend more than a couple years in a toddler bed and there are ways to make a regular bed safe with guard rails. The type of bed you do purchase will depend on your design style and space. Below are some examples that range from wooden to iron, fabric headboards to bunk beds. To entice your child to stay IN the bed at night allow him or her to help select the bedding.
