You might opt for a larger rail if you’re co-sleeping and want to keep your toddler in your bed as they transition to their own. Some rails come in pairs to form a safe barrier on the side and bottom of your bed, while you sleep on the other side. Larger rails are also great if you’re transitioning your child to a large bed directly or have a bed in the middle of a room that needs extended protection on all sides. They’re great if you don’t want any gap on the side of the rail where your toddler can climb out. One disadvantage is that the larger the rail, the less portable and adjustable it is.
Photo albums are a great way for your child to see their first hugs and holidays, and you could even pop in their birthday cards alongside the appropriate photographs. Similarly, keep a scrapbook of their achievements, like a collection of their baby swimming certificates and, eventually, school reports.
Most cribs let you adjust the mattress height; some have three levels, some have more. The higher levels make it easier to take your infant out of the crib, but they′re dangerous when your child is able to pull herself to a standing position. Before your child reaches that stage—about 6 months—the mattress should be at its lowest setting. Bumper pads and large toys can help your little escape artist climb out, which is another reason they don′t belong in the crib.
