The best foam mattresses are firm, on the heavy side, and resilient. Press on the mattress in the centre and at the edges. It should snap back readily and should not conform to the shape of your hand. You don´t want your baby resting on something that will mould to the shape of her head. To assess foam density (the denser, the better), compare the weight of different models. That`s not always easy to do in a store, but you`ll probably find the information online. To give a mattress a density test, pick it up, place a hand on each side in the centre, and then press your palms together. A dense mattress won't allow you to press very far.
Most children move from a crib to a toddler bed sometime between a child’s first and third year. It´s important not to make the switch too soon. When your little one is too big or active for a crib, consider these options. Toddler beds are a nice transition. They’re about the size of a crib, so your child will feel snug and cosy. They use a crib mattress, so you won`t have to invest in a new twin-sized or larger mattress just yet.
Enticing designs: It may not be your personal taste, but a bed crowned with a princess tiara or emblazoned with a favourite cartoon character may be just the lure your toddler needs to transition out of the crib. Weight limit: Check the manufacturer′s information, as many toddler beds max out at about 50 pounds. That means you won‵t be able to sit on it with your child, much less try to snuggle together.
