Toddler Floor Bed Benefits
Toddler floor beds are most often mentioned in Montessori nursery guidelines as the best option for your child.
Whether that’s the case really depends on the individual needs of the family and your toddler, however, floor beds have some proven benefits that might convince any parent to opt for them.
- Safety – toddler floor bed is a safe sleeping option that prevents the child from rolling over and falling off the bed. Especially in the early days when they transition from your bed or other sleeping arrangements, a floor bed is a safe and foolproof way to ensure your child doesn’t get hurt when rolling over. If you’re still concerned with the height of your floor bed, you can add a temporary guard to the side for peace of mind.
- Pocket-Friendly – anything that goes into a nursery or is bought for kids usually comes at a price tag, especially if it looks nice and happens to be a trend. Thankfully it’s not the case with floor beds as the most simple models just involve a few pieces of wood and a good quality mattress for kids. With a basic structure in mind, you can easily DIY a floor bed for your child and just buy the mattress to go with it.
- Encourages Independence -the main benefit of a toddler floor bed is undoubtedly the independence it promotes. Your child is free to roam around the nursery and explore toys, so when they wake up they are free to start playing on their own without waking you up. Of course, such independence should have safe boundaries and you should never let your toddler walk around the house unattended, or let the child wander in places where there are no safety gates.
- Multi-Purpose – once your child outgrows the floor bed, it can be easily converted into a storage unit or a simple desk, so there is no waste when you need to change to a bigger bed.
