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.
There's a thick insulator pad on top of the steel coils in an innerspring mattress, which keeps the coils from poking through. "The quality of the insulator is really a key component in a mattress," Schuetz says. "A mattress with a cheap insulator can feel good in the store but may not necessarily hold up."
A crib may seem like a big place to put your tiny new-born, but it's the safest place for her to sleep. While some parents use a cradle, bassinet, or bedside sleeper for the first few months, you can save money and worry by sticking with a crib. They're regulated by the federal government, and many are also certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). There are currently no federal standards for co-sleepers or Moses baskets. (While some bassinets are certified by the JPMA, many are not.) Steer clear of Moses baskets and bedside sleepers (sometimes called co-sleepers), since there are concerns about their safety.
