For babies from birth to 3 years

A special category consists of cots for babies. They have a lot of advantages. Mothers especially appreciate beds for babies in which a child can be sleeping at the age of 2 years.


For children up to 3 years old, sleeping designs are made only from natural materials, such as wood and metal. Preference should be given to wooden structures, as they are the least traumatic, although they are many times more expensive. Especially not have to spend money if you choose a domestic model of pine or birch, instead of an overseas bed made of solid beech.


The special difference between a crib from 0 years is a lattice made from wooden round or flat sticks, located on two sides of the structure.For safety, the distance between the bars is made very small, so that the baby can not stick his hand. Another feature is a two-tier bottom, which can be adjusted independently depending on age.

For the grown-up child there is an interesting function - a folding wall, which is very useful at the moment when the baby learns to go to bed on their own. Most designs have built-in storage drawers.

Cots for newborns can be divided into several types:

  • Rocking-bed - classic version for a newborn. When buying, you need to pay attention not only to the runners, but also to the possibility of attaching the wheels.
  • Cradle; despite the short service life, which lasts no more than six months, such models are quite expensive. Due to their practicality, small size and beautiful appearance, many mothers buy cozy crib for their children.
  • Transforming bed; The most functional, albeit a large model. It is very popular because it consists of a bed, drawers and a changing panel.Serves as a bed not only for the baby, but also for the older child.

For preschooler

Choosing a bed for a child from 3 or 4 years old, you should pay attention not only to the basic requirements (safety, environmental friendliness, comfort), but also to his preferences. Preschooler is no longer a baby, but a completely independent child who knows what he likes and what does not.

Regarding the shape and colors, you should not neglect the desires of your child. For a 5-year-old child, a bright attic or a bed-machine will be much more interesting than an ordinary bed the color of natural wood.

As for the construction, the bed should be chosen with a smooth hard base, which consists of slats or a solid slab. Do not “spoil” the bed too soft mattress.At such a young age, children need a hard surface for sleeping, so that their posture is formed as it should. Get mattresses with coconut filling, they have the necessary rigidity and are environmentally safe.

For children of school age make their beds, the size of which range from 70 to 90 cm in width and from 180 to 200 m in length. The bed for the student should be comfortable and durable, as it will serve as a bed for many years.

The bed structure for an older child has a more restrained appearance. When buying such a bed, it is simply necessary to take the student for the purchase with him, as children at this age are very picky and there is a chance that your choice will not be appreciated.

  • Foldable bed. Practical and ergonomic design that easily “hides” in the closet during the daytime, which increases the space. Included is a set with drawers and shelves, as well as a separate work area.
