Where to buy a cheap toddler's bed

Toddlers are the in-betweens: too big (or they feel they are too big) for the crib and too small for a regular bed. Read this article to find out where to buy a cheap toddler's bed.

Furniture store

Toddler beds Regulations dictate that toddler beds should have a safety railing that rises at least five inches above the top surface of the mattress, which is an important consideration when buying a bed for your toddler. These safety railings must also have a clear label informing the parents of possible risk of strangulation. However, this regulation can allow you to buy a wide range of beds for your toddler. The furniture store The furniture store is one of the place whereby you can shop for toddler beds. These stores may cater to the whole home or stores which specialise in children's furniture and nursery equipment. At these stores and especially the stores for children, you will find a wide range of beds that can appeal to all toddlers. Be cautious Make sure that these beds are not too far off the ground (closer to the ground should your toddler falls from the bed) as well as comes with a safety railing. If the bed does not come with a safety railing, make sure you buy one to go with the bed. The railing must be of proper height and possess the warning listed in the introduction.

Swap or charity store

Another place to shop for kids' beds is swaps and charity stores. The sad thing is that toddlers outgrow their beds. When this happens, parents often bring these beds to swaps or charity stores to make room for regular beds in the children's bedrooms. This gives you an opportunity to buy cheap child's beds for your toddler. Disadvantage The only drawback is that you will probably have to buy a safety railing if the beds don't come with one already installed. The swap is the best place to find junior beds because often these beds could be free (you must bring your own items to swap as well) or very cheap. At swaps, parents are able to trade their outgrown children's items for ones that will fit their children.

Used furniture stores

Since the requirements for a toddler bed include being low to the ground and having a safety railing, you could use most beds available, including antique or used regular beds. This allows you to buy a bed once for your child - a bed that will work for your toddler as well as the larger child/young adult he or she will become. Buying a safety rail will be a necessity.
