Floor beds for toddlers is a popular topic as of late, with everyone tallying up the pros and cons, and deciding whether a floor bed is best for their toddler. We’ve shared floor bed ideas in a previous post, and today, I’m going to expand further with even more floor bed inspiration and ideas!
So many people seem to be jumping on the floor bed bandwagon. The idea is favored by those who believe in the Montessori Method for child raising (in short, encouraging independence for children). Floor beds fit in well with this method, as it encourages independence and a proper level of freedom for the child.
As with everything, though, whether or not a floor bed is a good idea for your child depends on many things, including your child’s temperament and sleep habits. Also of note, it is critically important that if you choose to go the floor bed route, your child’s room is thoroughly childproofed and safe.
Looking to transition your child to a floor bed, and want to go the DIY route (good for you!) Here are some great ideas and tutorials to get you started!
