The size of the keepsake box you need depends on how much you want to keep in it. Smaller boxes are better suited to including a few select items to represent one moment in time, like their birth or a birthday, whereas larger boxes and chests can be used to store mementoes from their whole childhoods.
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.
A wide range of frame sizes and types are available and a few of them are especially popular: wood frames, black or white frames and metallic frames. These styles, when used right, amplify the overall presentation of your artwork.
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.
