The transition to toddler bed is a big one
It’s a whole new world when your little one is d-o-n-e with the crib. You’ve moved the crib mattress as low as it’ll go and you still hear little feet after your tiny escape artist makes it out of their baby bed. You know it’s time, but we also know that finding a toddler bed can be a challenge. From cribs that convert for bigger kids, beds that have their favorite characters, and beds that match their rooms perfectly, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorites for the new chapter.

One of the major differences between the crib and the toddler bed is the height. This cool floor bed makes it easier to avoid falls (or jumps—let's be honest), but still lets them have the independence your toddler's looking for. It comes in 4 different finishes, too.
