We're talking about all things sleep this month on Ohdeedoh, so we've rounded up a few thoughts on the toddler bed from our archives. Is it another cute but unnecessary piece of baby/kid gear?

IKEA also has extendable beds that go from toddler to regular sized. Some parents go straight to a twin bed with a guard rail or place a twin mattress on the floor. Tell us what worked for you.
