Babble Best Picks:
Kid too big for the crib but not yet ready for a true "big kid" bed? That's where the toddler bed comes in. Often low to the ground with guard rails to prevent active young sleepers from falling out, toddler beds ease the transition from crib to twin for both you and your little one. And there are tons of options out there, from convertible toddler beds to character beds to super stylish beds.
We did a little something different for this Babble Best and asked a group of our amazing bloggers to test and review the products themselves. As moms, they knew the buzz around which beds were most worthy of testing, and we've highlighted their top picks here for you. Did we miss one that you love? Feel free to nominate it here. - Babble Editors
BEST FOR TRAVEL | Regalo My Cot
Rather than a portable crib that lays on the floor, which our toddler tester would have rejected, the Regalo My Cot allows him to have his own designated sleeping area up off the ground. The bed is extremely easy to set up; like a foldable lawn chair, the cot popped open, the cover slipped on, and it was good to go. The bed’s small footprint makes it great for tucking into the trunk of the car, and it can double as an extra chair at ballgames and campsites!
