Toddler Beds

These compact junior beds are designed to help kids make the transition from a cot to a full size single bed and come in a range of designs and prices.

It’s surprising how fast children grow and sooner or later the time will come when you want to upgrade form a cot to a proper bed. There is no perfect age for when this occurs — all kids are different after all. However, the best way to make the transition is start with a toddler bed which is just like a full-sized single bed but just a bit smaller and lower down to the floor so it’s easy to get in an out of. Ideally you’ll want a bed which incorporates a safety rail at one or both sides, just in case, but you’ll probably be surprised just how quickly your youngster adapts to his or her new sleeping space.

Budget Toddler Beds Under £100

You can find quite a selection of junior beds in the less than £100 range although you’ll usually have to buy a separate mattress which can push the price up significantly. Some retailers will sell the basic frame for a very low price in the hope you’ll buy a mattress at the same time and this is how they make a profit. It makes sense, therefore, to check if you can buy a mattress elsewhere and if it is a standard size: 700mm x 1400mm (70 cm— 140 cm) or  27 ½ inches — 55 inches.

Bed buying and sleep advice for parents.Although junior beds are recommended for kids aged from 2 to 6 there are no set rules for when they should progress to a full size bed and you’ll need to play it by ear where your own child is concerned. Bear this in mind though when buying  your bed or a replacement mattress as it may need to last longer than you might first imagine.

The Sleep Council have published a useful guide for parents on all matters sleep related  entitled The  Good Night Guide for Children   – download a free copy here (PDF).

  1. I have a granddaughter who was admitted to hospital – she fell from her cot it was horrible. You should make it quite clear about safety with the item. When you put beds on to sale it should include a mattress and safety rails on each side.

    1. I read this and had to reply, surly common sense should come into play when talking about your child’s safety? Choose a bed with safety rails rather than buying one without! Also why should a bed that is on sale include a mattress? Nine times out of ten you have to buy the mattress separate to the cot/toddler bed from most retailers which has nothing to do with children falling out of bed.

    2. That’s a bit unfair, if you purchase a bed for a child YOU are responsible for safety rails. Especially as the bed is bought as seen. So you would know it didn’t come with rails?
