View Full Version : bed recommendations?

03-09-2004, 04:26 PM
Hi. I'm hoping to transition my first baby to a bed after #2 arrives- She's only 16 mos. now but the baby isn't due until June and I'm planning to use a bassinet for the first 3 months anyway so she'll be about 22 mos. by then.
Here's my wish list:
--A regular twin bed (toddler beds seem so temporary)
--High-riser feature so that it's usable for guests and sleepovers in the future (I'd prefer a pop-up bed as opposed to a trundle)
--a pretty frame would be nice!
--affordable would also be nice!!

Here are my concerns:
-The bed will be too high if it has a high riser feature
-DD will be too young to make the switch :(

We will also be moving into a new house at that time so DD will have a whole new room...

Any ideas about brands or styles? Thanks :)

We had to switch DS to a bed @ 18 mos because he climbed out of his crib. So, I think that by the time your little one is 22 mos he will do just fine.
I only wanted to offer one piece of advice - stick with it. I wanted to give up so many times ( tempted to buy a crib tent), but in the end it has paid off, and now he will stay in his bed.
We went to a toddler bed, so I can't help you on the furniture :-)
