Describe Yourself: Parent of Two or More Children
I loved the bed when it was a crib. All but how tall the sides are. I had the hardest time reaching in to put my daughter to bed. The toddler part of the bed isn't very safe for toddlers. The bed does NOT come with a side rail to protect her from falling out. And the cheap metal bed rails don't work on any toddler bed. It has to be a mattress and box spring. The crib does come with a "guard rail" but its just there for the mattress to stay in. Really the toddler bed is called a DAY BED because they don't have the extra side rail that most toddler beds have. We might just have to convert it to the full size bed and use a rail. I do love the thickness and heavy duty part of the crib though.
I just made this review on Babies "R" Us. We have converted the bed into the toddler part and was hoping to order the side rail so Lizzy will stop falling out. I just found out though that it doesn't come with one!!! If you're looking to get a new crib that is a convertible crib, make sure it does come with the side rail and a guard rail.
That long piece right there is called the "Guard Rail". It's purpose is to hold the mattress in. "Guard" the mattress, but not Lizzy!!!
Here are the WARNINGS for this crib: The DAY BED is not intended for children under 15 months of age or over 50 lbs..... If guardrails are used as the mattress containment means, guardrail (s) provided must be used.
The only way the guard rail can be used is to hold the mattress in!
Sweet Lizzy and Isabelle sleeping. I can ONLY blog when they are asleep.
