Your baby is now a little girl and is ready for a big bed. Finding just the right bed may be harder than you think. Other than safety issues, the most important part of the bad is the mattress. Hopefully your little girl will use this bed for years to come and you want the mattress to last. You want your child to learn to sleep well, being comfortable and a good mattress can make the difference. One that is supportive yet comfortable should serve your child’s needs. |
Next you need to consider the type, or size of bed. There are several options: twin, full, queen, king, bunk beds and ones with a trundle. The type of bed you get will usually depend on how much space you have in the room. The choice may also depend on how long you plan for your child to use this bed. Finally, it will also depend on the style of the bed, as many beds designed for youngsters are available only in twin and full sizes. Children under 5 should not sleep in the top bunk. Some bunk beds have a full sized mattress on the bottom with a twin on top.
Once you’ve determined the size and the type of the bed, it’s time to determine the style. This is the time where your child’s input might be helpful. The style of the bed includes the shape, color and material used to make the bed. The bed should go with the rest of the room; but a simple one that will age with your child is the most beneficial.
Beds designed to match a particular theme in a child’s room are often chosen, but cost should be considered as the theme in the room of a small child will likely change as the child gets older. It’s usually best to buy a basic bed and change the bedding to match any theme in the room. Hopefully, your child will love her bed and sleep well night after night.
