Updated on January 15, 2012

Choosing the correct bed for your Toddler

It's a difficult decision to make but there comes a time for every parent when baby becomes too big to sleep in their crib and has to be moved into a proper bed.

Some people think about this problem before baby was born and buy cribs that convert into baby's first bed, others like to wait until baby develops his or her own personality before picking a bed to suit.

The first and foremost thing though in most parents mind is the safety of their child wanting to be sure that their child is secure and will not fall out of bed and get hurt.

Toddlers move around in their sleep a lot and can easily roll out of bed if there is nothing there to stop them, most toddler beds come supplied with safety bars for just such occasions.

Children love walking around and want to get out of bed when they awaken, toddler beds should also be a little lower to the ground than most normal beds to make it easier for your child to get in and out safely.

      The beds they make today for toddlers are adorable, but I wonder how many people actually buy them, because they are only in them for such a short period of time. I myself, bought a car bed for my son and I thought it was worth every penny, because he just loved his bed, and actually didn't mind going to bed at night.
