Is your 18-month old trying to perform Houdini-like stunts in the crib? Do you think that it’s time to transition into a bigger baby bed?

Well then, convert the crib into a toddler bed. Wait, is that that’s an impossible option with the crib? If the crib isn’t an option, then you should look for the best twin bed for toddlers.

We love them, but we have to let them go on to the bigger open bed earlier than we would wish. The slats on a crib make a crib safe but knowing that your baby’s safety is at stake, you will have to look for the best toddler bed.

On the other hand, if you are making early plans, you should look for the toddler bed before your baby reaches 2 or 3 years.

The reasons why you will need a toddler bed include safety. At about 35”, your baby will try to climb out of the crib and that isn’t something you want to deal with. At the same time, exceeding the crib’s weight limit jeopardizes the crib’s structural integrity and the safety of your baby.

You also need a toddler bed because your baby will move into your bed if theirs is uncomfortable. Your sleep and your relationship will suffer from a dominating toddler in the same bed.

Lastly, you will need a twin bed for toddlers to encourage independence and for your kid to feel all grown up.

Features to Look for When Buying Twin Bed for Toddler

  • Safety
    Will your toddler be safe sleeping in the twin bed? We know toddlers as the terrible twos - as he or she jumps on the bed, will the bed remain string to hold your baby and keep him or her safe?
    To make the transition from crib to toddler bed easier, look out for safety features such as low-to-ground designs. You should also look out for a toddler twin bed with side guard rails. For stability, get a bed with center leg reinforcement.
    The side rails are effective especially if your child tosses and tumbles through the night. With regards to safety, get a twin bed for toddlers with a seal of certification from Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA).
  • Size of the frame in relation to the mattress
    Can the bed’s frame hold a standard size crib mattress? The mattress needs to fit snugly without forming any spaces on the sides. If it doesn’t, look out for a mattress that will fit well. Any space forms an entrapment hazard.
  • Sturdy construction
    The construction of a twin bed and any other bed determines if the bed will last longer and if the occupant will be safe. That said, the twin bed will be sturdy and safe. The use of solid wood and metal rails on a bed indicates quality. You may pay more for it, but it will be worth the price.
  • Finishing
    Most of us will choose a twin bed because of how it looks. This is worse when you have to consult your baby. We are not saying that that is a wrong move but, you should not overlook features of safety and stability.
    The finishing should be safe. Look for beds with non-toxic finishes and ensure that the bed looks good in the room. Consider a bed with a smooth finish and rounded edges. You should avoid beds with hardware that sticks out.
  • Weight limit
    What is the bed’s maximum weight limit? If your child is on the heavy side, you may want to look for a bed with a higher maximum weight limit. The construction should be stronger too. He or she shouldn’t outgrow the bed in months.
