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 YOUR BUDGET | Ikea Minnen
The convertible Ikea Minnen grows with your kid from a toddler to a twin bed; you can extend it once about 1.5 feet, then another time to reach full twin size, guaranteeing a good amount of years’ worth of use. So when you think about it, you’re getting two beds for the price of one – or, actually, even less than one, since the Minnen falls just short of $150!
