"I want a toddler bed for my 3-year old "

My child just turned 3 and it must have triggered something because the crib no longer seems to suit her anymore. I want a toddler bed since she rolls around a lot. New territory for me here. Any recs? Thanks!

Toddler bed -- how about bed rails instead?

Hi there.

I guess I'll answer your question by asking if you really, really need a toddler bed? The reason why I ask is that you may soon find that you need to get a normal sized bed in just a few years. You can save yourself some $$ potentially by avoiding the toddler bed stage of life.

I, too, thought I needed a toddler bed when my girl was little, but then I ended up buying a normal twin bed with bed rails. Bed rail anchors slip between the mattress and box spring so the bed rail can rest flush against the side of the bed and serve as a rail to help prevent your child from rolling out of bed.

Getting a pair of bed rails is your best choice (price $20).

Good luck!

    "I want a warm winter jacket for my 10-year old daughter" +
    details: She has one that she's outgrown (plus it's quite grubby from whatever it is that 5th graders do to make clothes grubby). She likes the color blue, hates pink and is open to all other colors. She also likes things to be stylish in an understated way -- no bling for her. I want something that will be warm and hides dirt well. Any suggestions? Thanks!

She doesn't know if it will be a boy or a girl and she hasn't gotten a crib yet. I figure it should include a comforter, bumper and sheets at least. Advice on where to go or cute neutral designs would be helpful. Thank you.
