  • If she is tall and already naps in a twin bed I wold go with buying her one, there are side rails you can buy just incase.

  • I would go with a twin and skip the toddler. If you are worried about how high it is off the floor, but the mattress on the floor until she grows some more.

  • I agree I would go with the twin bed, Kids are in toddler beds for such a short period of time I personally never say the point of them. When my kids were little I would put the bed against the wall and then use a rail for the other side.

    Good Luck

  • Honestly, I never used a toddler bed with my son. By the time I was ready to move him from the crib to his own bed, he was tall enough to get out of a twin bed, so I did not see the need in buying a toddler bed and then having to turn around and buy a twin size bed.

  • I would bypass the toddler bed and go right with the twin. Our son is pretty tall as well as we bought him a queen size bed and just keep it on the floor right now. His is also up against one wall.

  • I think a toddler bed is a waste of money.
