The Wonders of Kid Size Furniture
There’s no scarier sound than a toddler falling out of the crib. I remember when my daughter was around 18 months old and I heard a loud “THUD!” and then a scream and I was instantly gripped with fear for my daughter’s safety. Luckily, she was just scared because she had climbed and fallen out of her crib.
When I realized that her crib was now a danger zone I had to quickly get a transitional bed for her room. I didn’t want to pick a twin bed because that was just too high, so I went with a toddler bed and she LOVED it!
I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get her to go to sleep in her new, big girl bed and she just felt so proud to be able to get in and out on her own. What I love about toddler beds is that they come with safety rails, so she couldn’t roll off during a wild dream.
The only hard part about getting one was picking which design I liked best. I figured I’d feature some of my favorites from different styles below to make that task a little easier for all you moms who have toddlers that are ready for that big kid bed.
Sleigh Style Toddler Bed – This is the Soom Soom Sleigh Toddler Bed by Storkcraft and I had to put this on my list of faves because the design allows it to fit beautifully into so many types of room decors. This toddler bed has two safety rails that can be removed when your child wants even more open sleep space.
Modern Toddler Bed – I love the
White Petra Toddler Bed by Argington. It’s such a modern bed for a toddler and will create a really beautiful, contemporary looking kid’s room. I think any toddler would be over-joyed to have this as a transitional sleep space!
Theme Based Toddler Bed – I had to show everyone the Boat Toddler Bed by KidKraft because it’s just so, darn cute! This adds such a sense of fun to a toddler’s room and it is a bed that will be slept on and played on!
Toddler Bed with Storage – The Oak Joel Pine Toddler Bed with Drawer is a beautiful transitional bed that also offers extra storage space to a toddler’s room which is a plus in my book!
Toddler Day Bed Combo – I love the thought of having a bed like the Natural Toddler Day Bed by Dream on Me in a toddler’s room because when your little guy or girl starts to grow up you can remove the toddler rail and keep using this as a bed for several more years. A daybed also can be used as sitting space by adding several fluffy pillows, so it’s the type of furniture that can move from bedroom to playroom and be used for years.

Saturday, May 19, 2012 is Armed Forces Day which began on May 20, 1950 as a way to honor our service men and women who are dedicated to keeping our country safe. Armed Forces Day was also started to educate civilians about the armed forces and everything they stand for and the jobs done by our service personnel who protect us from land, sea and air.

This is our way of honoring all military personnel and the families who are there to support them every step of the way.
