Sturdy construction: Give the bed a good jostle – it needs to stand up to a few years of bouncing and other toddler wear and tear. The more solidly built the frame, the less likely you'll have to replace it after one too many dance parties. Solid wood costs more but will endure better than cheaper materials.
If you‵re planning to convert your baby´s crib to a toddler bed, consider dual-firmness convertible mattresses, which are in the middle to top price range. They´re extra firm for infants on one side and cushier for toddlers on the other. Some have standard foam or springy memory foam for the toddler side. (You can flip the mattress after your baby`s first birthday, when the risk of SIDS decreases.) The Sealy Posturepedic Spring free crib mattress, about $180, has a side made of soybean foam for infants and a softer latex foam side with a water-resistant soft fabric cover for toddlers.
Hang onto their hospital name band and the outfit they wore in their first few days; immediately after the birth it can get a bit busy and hazy, so it’s nice to keep some relics from that time and remember when you first met properly.
