The style of box you choose is a matter of personal taste, but it should be made as special as possible. Many boxes can be personalised with their name, date of birth, or a sentimental message. You can even print a photograph of your baby directly onto the box to create something that is entirely theirs.
Made of firm foam in a soft washable cover, foam bed bumpers are a gentle and convenient way to prevent the older or more confident toddler from creeping too close to the edge of the bed. Bumpers are usually more affordable than bed rails and take up far less space. This makes them portable — just pack it up to take to Grandma’s house if necessary.
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.
If your child still may need your occasional attention at night, or if you’d prefer a product you can tuck away when not needed, look for a fold-down rail instead. Some swing down and others can be slid/pushed directly down — either way, these kinds of rails are easy to use and lightweight. Lock into place at night to provide a solid barrier, then unlock and swing away during the day when you need to get in there and make the bed.
