The Toddler Bed or Twin Bed Debate


(phone ringing)

ME: Hey Babe!
BRANDON: Well, it finally happened.
ME: What?
BRANDON: Zane just fell out of her crib.
ME: Oh no – is she ok?
BRANDON: yeah, I heard a loud thud, and then crying so I rushed upstairs and she was walking around from the back side of her crib. She was pretty shaken.

….. and somehow I am now searching craigslist tonight for the perfect toddler bed :)

I would like to re-decorate Zane’s room with this transition, and I am now on the serious hunt for a new bed for her. I know it was just the first time she jumped out, and it could be a little while before we ACTUALLY have to transition her, but I would like to be ready when we need to be.

My question for you – did you buy a toddler bed or go straight to the twin bed? What are your reasonings either way. I see a lot of arguments for both sides, and I am having a hard time deciding. Leave me a comment and help me decide!

Thank you ahead of time for your input!

    Personally, unless you can get a toddler bed for super cheap, I’d go straight to a twin. But then again, I’m old and toddler beds were practically unheard of when our kids were little. :)

      They have inexpensive toddler beds at IKEA.

    We decided on the twin bed simply because it was an easy option for me lying there with him at night (praying, reading, singing, etc.) We purchased a twin mattress from Ikea and simply put that on the floor for a good 6-7 months while he was transitioning. Just in case he was used to lying against the side of the crib & so he felt comfortable getting in and out on his own. Then we purchased a low to the ground single bed frame from Ikea and it works great! We keep an extra single mattress under the bed so that when we have guests we can have an instant queen sized slumber party! Happy hunting!

    Remy went straight to a twin bed because we didn’t want to acquire more kid furniture than we already have!! Plus I scored on a twin Room&Board bed on craigslist back in MN that I couldn’t pass up and knew the bed would carry him through, well, adulthood really!
