Turn a Day Bed Around for a Safe Toddler Sleep Spot

Turn a Day Bed Around for a Safe Toddler Sleep Spot

Many of you weighed in on our discussion of toddler beds yesterday with some arguing the merits of transitioning straight to a twin bed and others preferring something in between. Well what do you think of the idea of a twin-sized day bed turned around to guard against falls?

We read about this idea on Baby Toolkit (who heard about it from Mom Advice) so we can't take any credit (or blame!), but it's certainly an interesting idea. (Check out their posts to see how it's working out for them.)

We like the longevity of this idea - use it as a toddler bed and turn it around when your kid is ready. When your kids are in the tween and teen years they'll love hanging out on it with their friends like a sofa. When they've gone off to college or to conquer the world it makes a nice guest bed or daybed in an office. What do you think of this idea? Too easy for young toddlers to get out of? Not easy enough for older toddlers?
