Pro’s & Con’s – Big or Little?

IT’S BIG BED TIME

 

Had enough of your little one climbing out of their cot?  Worried they’re going to fall? Think they’re trying to tell you something?  That’s right…it’s time for a big bed!  Here we look at the pros and cons of the different big bed options.

Cot bed/Toddler Bed

Pros

  • It’s small enough to feel cute
  • Won’t overwhelm your little one
  • Less likely of wriggling down to the bottom of the bed and getting too hot

Cons

  • Mattresses are generally poorer quality
  • They are a short term investment – aimed at age 2 – 5
  • You can’t snuggle with them if needed

Divan Bed

Pros

  • Invest in a decent one it will see you through the primary years
  • You can snuggle in/swoop
  • Easy to top and tail friends/siblings

Cons

  • Can feel too big initially – overwhelming
  • Higher up so if they fall out chances are it will hurt
  • More expensive

Midi Sleeper

Pros

  • A mid sleeper is exciting
  • Easier to potentially sell on
  • Great storage

Cons

  • Likely to fall climbing in and out
  • Harder to change the bedding
  • Defines the room as a child’s room (could be a pro too) – but you’re not offering that to Aunty Mabel!

Double Bed

Pros

  • Super comfy for everyone!
  • Great for when you have visitors to stay
  • Under bed storage and hiding space!

Cons

  • Take up valuable floor/playing space
  • Unlikely to get ‘kid friendly/designed’ bedding
  • More washing
