Is your child ready for a junior bed?

When you're looking for the best junior bed for your child, it's probably because your child is getting too big for their cot. Maybe your child has started to crawl out of their cot, or maybe your child has outgrown their cot. There can be many reasons for parents to consider when to make the switch to a junior bed.

Some children love their cot, and feel a great sense of security knowing they are behind the bars and perhaps their bed rail. Other children enjoy the opportunity to crawl in and out of their bed themselves, and therefore sleep better when they move to a junior bed. Another advantage of a junior bed is that parents can sit on the edge of the bed and read bedtime stories or hold hands if needed. In this way, you are less separated from your child with a junior bed than when you have a three-poster bed.

Here we have listed three points for you to consider when deciding whether you should get a junior bed.

  • Is there enough room in the cot?

    If your baby has long legs and space is at a premium in the cot, it's time to move to a bigger bed. Most children outgrow their cot before the age of 3, and are therefore given a junior bed.

  • Does your child crawl out of the cot?

    Is your child trying to climb over the edge of the cot? Or has he or she even managed to break out? It can be dangerous if your child tries to climb out in the middle of the night. It's a long way to the floor if your child lands on their head or neck. So, if you have a little escapee at home, it's a good idea to switch to a junior bed. On some cribs, you can take the side off so it's open, which can also be the solution to the problem.

  • Is your child happy with his or her cot?

    Does your child sleep through the night, or does she wake up and want to be picked up several times a night? Some children thrive better in a bed they can climb in and out of themselves. It can also be great for them if they can get out of bed and join mum and dad during the night.
