There comes a time for every baby, when they aren’t really a baby any more. Perhaps they’re walking and talking and their limbs have begun to stretch and grow. So how can you make sure they still sleep like a baby if they can no longer sleep like an infant? If they are getting to big for cot beds, perhaps these bed suggestions can help you decide the best sleeping solution for your child.
This is usually a child’s first real bed. They are smaller than a twin sized bed, so they are easy for small legs to climb into. You can either purchase a set when your child is ready for one, or you can plan ahead. Some cot beds come pared with a changing table so that they can both be taken apart and reassemble as a junior bed. These sets are very useful since a child moving into his or her own bed won’t need a changing table anyway.
As your child grows older, he or she might be accumulating more and more possessions. One bed style that can help organize the clutter that a child can create are kids cabin beds. These beds usually have built in shelving or cabinets that are convenient for storing toys or clothes. Some models also have an attached step ladder, so children can easily get in and out of bed.
If your child, or children, require more room, you can double the usable space of the room with a bunk bed, or a bunk bed with desk set. Bunk beds can accommodate another bed for a sibling, a play or work area or even a sofa. There are even bunk bed models that have a twin size mattress for the top layer and a full mattress for the bottom. Other sets are also have the ability to separate into two matching twins, but if you do plan on stacking the beds, it is recommended that only children over 6 use top bunk.

Bunk beds that do not have an attached lower mattress are called loft beds.
