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.

My son sleeps next to me on the floor since 7 mths. That time he climbed out from his baby bay and I hated the normal crib as he was too heavy for me taking out for night feedings. So I just rolled down to him :) Now he is 1 yr and after waking he can read his books. So thumbs up for big floor beds! ;)

Do you use a crib mattress? If so, what do you put below for breathability? My 4 year old has an IKEA toddler bed with slats, but she has not outgrown that bed, so we wanted to use a crib mattress for her 19 month old sister.

Thanks, Ellen
