  • an inexpensive one since they won't use them long.. We opted for a wood one instead of the plastic ones since I found a good deal on it and it seemed more sturdy.

  • I spent $100 on a wooden one at Toys "R" Us. I used the same mattress as the crib and sheets. Ds has been sleeping on it since he was about 18 months old and he just turned 6. If he hits another growth spurt though I'm going to get him a full size bed. I'm not going to bother with a twin bed, might as well get a full that he can sleep on the rest of the years he lives with us!

  • i transitioned my son from a crib to a RACECAR toddler bed.. it is an interest that he has (the cars) an it worked well.. i know of a few other parents that have done similar.. think it all depends on your kid.. my cousin (same age as my son) was in a toddler bed before him an she did really good because it was a convertible crib that did all the bed types

  • We got DD a toddler bed from IKEA, it was longer than a regular toddler bed.

    If you want to save money, I'd skip right to a twin bed with a rail

  • I actually skipped the toddler bed...I bought a twin bunkbeds and blocked off the top till she was older....why waste money on a toddler bed that their only in for 2 years? Now when my daughter has sleepovers they each have their own bed....
