It’s a good idea to include gifts from as many different family members as possible. You probably received a lot of teddy bears and baby blankets that may seem superfluous now, but one day your baby can discover them and remember who was there to celebrate their birth.
A snug fit: You want a frame that holds the mattress tightly. If the crib mattress you have doesn't fit snugly into the bed frame, buy one that does. Gaps between the mattress and the frame pose an entrapment hazard. Smooth edges: To avoid injuries, look for a design with an even, smooth finish and rounded edges, as well as hardware that doesn′t jut out.
A convertible crib can come in handy when you want to transition your child to a toddler bed. Many of them can be switched to a toddler bed by simply removing one side and adding a rail. Some parents report that the change from a crib to a toddler bed is so small that toddlers have an easier time making the transition. Also keep in mind that some convertible beds require parts that sometimes aren‵t included in the original purchase, such as bed rails, stabilizing rails, or support rails (for converting to a full-sized bed).
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.
