Once your child is old enough to sleep in a toddler bed you will want to start looking at the options that are currently available to you. Before you know it you will need to replace the baby crib for something a little more substantial.
There are many reasons you should buy your child a toddler size bed. One reason is in order to help them prepare for the transition from their little baby crib onto to a toddler bed which will eventually lead on to a full sized kids bed ending up with an adult bed.
Buying your child a toddler bed is safer than letting them sleep with you or in a crib. Children grow remarkably fast in the first five years of their lives, and before you know it, your child will no longer fit in his or her little cot. This is the perfect time to introduce them to the toddler crib. Toddler cribs have safety features that your bed may not have, such as side rails to ensure they do not fall out of bed and get an injury. Your child can sleep safe, sound, and secure without making you lose sleep.
Toddler beds can also make a statement to a child that they should be okay to sleep by themselves. Young children are often afraid of the dark, so they will try to sneak in bed with you. While this is acceptable from time to time, you should not make a habit of it or your child will have significant trouble sleeping in their own bed when it comes time. Toddler sized beds are the best way to know that your child is safe with no risk of falling. Your kids will love sleeping in their new, comfortable kids size bed.
