Getting The Right Portable Toddler Bed For Your Daughter
By Sam Cyrus
Buying a portable toddler bed may be a big decision for any parent. Not only can it be difficult to find one that is appropriate and will last, it can also be an emotional time as a portable toddler bed is a sign that you child is no longer a baby and can handle sleeping other places, but is too big for a crib. No longer wearing baby cloths, toddler clothing is another sign that they are growing up. But you still have to find that perfect portable toddler bed. And you should be able to find what you are looking for with a little sweat on your body.
Tips To Select A Portable Toddler Bed
There are various options that you need to think over when shopping for a portable toddler bed. The first is money in your pocket. Portable toddler beds can fluctuate in price, but spending any more than a couple of hundred dollars (mattress included) is not recommended. It is because most beds will not be used forever, and most will be damaged when they are being used. Even the most well behaved of toddlers will do something to their portable toddler bed, while this damage can usually be repaired like I said I would not invest a lot of money on your portable toddler bed. Beside that, this is not their permanent bed, so you just need to find something they can sleep in.
After deciding the price range, the next step is to decide what materials you want to have the bed made out of. Most are one of three types – wood, cloth, or metal. Wood beds are cozy, but are usually very heavy and can be much more susceptible to damage when compared to the other two types. They are not very portable and can be painful to lug around.
Metal beds are lighter than wood, but mostly are cold and unforgiving. However, they last a really long time and can be a solid bed for a long time. Another thing, many metal beds are easily expandable. Metal in general are less expensive than wood, but usually more than a hard plastic resin bed.
While a cloth bed may seem like a cheap and bad alternative, when you look at some of the newer ones that have come out they really can be a good purchase. Cloth is much more resistant to damage than either wood or metal, and is not nearly as harsh or unforgiving. Another good point, cloth is light when compared with wood, and has a variety of colors than either wood or metal. The most important thing it is far cheaper than either alternative.
Those are few things for you to consider before purchasing a portable toddler bed. Consider your options and then make the purchase that makes the most sense for you.
