While Jack's still doing great in his crib - he hasn't tried to escape by climbing over yet - we're probably switching him over by this Spring. I'm particularly looking for a white bed that has guard rails since Jack moves some much during the night. We haven't decided if we will get a toddler bed or just move straight to a twin/full bed and add temporary guard rails.
For the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing my favorite beds + bedding options in several price points. Today I'm starting off with 2 affordable options by IKEA.
Ikea's Sundvik bed offers higher sides which would allow Jack to move around without falling out. Even though it's design is more traditional, I think it would still fit perfectly with the rest of the decor and furniture in his room.
The Gulliver bed is inspired by the popular and super affordable Gulliver crib. I love it's simple and functional - storage can be added underneath - design. At 65" it's longer than your average toddler bed, but still much shorter than a traditional twin size.
When you transition your child from a crib to a bed, did you get a toddler bed first or did you move straight to a bigger bed? I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions since we are still trying to decide.
