When we bought our first crib, we listened to everyone who told us to make sure to get one that converts to a toddler bed. But then we had another kid who needed that crib, so we still ended up getting a toddler bed anyway. Truth be told, our kid never liked the thing and just ended up sleeping in a twin bed with rails.
With our third, however, we didn’t have enough room for that solution and a toddler bed probably would saved us a lot of heartache and sleepless nights.

If I could do it all over again, I’d add the Kalon Studios new Echo Toddler Bed
to my wish list, a simple, gorgeous bed made from 100% FSC certified
maple by an American Craftsman and finished with a non-toxic wood oil
that’s safe for your kiddo and the environment. These made to order beds
are low enough so your little one can get in and out with ease, but
still feature raised sides so you’re not running in to pick them up off
the floor when they roll out.
All that amazing design and handmade craftsmanship doesn’t come cheap,
but given how much I would have used it now four kids later, I’d be
willing to make the investment in something that looks gorgeous and I
know will last. -Kristen
You can purchase the Echo Toddler Bed from Kalon Studios. They’ve also got a conversion kit for those families with the Eco Crib.
