Toddler Beds Make the Crib to Bed Transition Easy for Tots

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.
