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.
Toddler beds have high sides or built-in rails to keep your child from falling or rolling out. And – adding to the kid appeal – they come in cool designs including spaceships, princess castles, or speed-demon cars. If your crib converts to a toddler bed, you can just use the conversion kit from the crib manufacturer (sometimes sold separately), which usually includes hardware and a bed rail. Swap one side of the crib for the rail, and you`re done. Your child will enjoy the familiarity of the old crib and sleep safely enclosed but will be able to get in and out without your help.
The best insulator pads contain coir fiber, which is made up of shredded coconut shells. Fiber-wrap pads (also called "rag" or "shoddy" pads), are made from pressed scraps of cloth. Coir-fiber pads are more expensive than fiber-wrap ones, but either works well. The lowest-quality insulator pads are made from woven polyester. Because they′re less durable, they tend to form pockets over time. They also become concave where most of the baby′s weight rests, creating a safety hazard.
