A children's bed is a very important attribute of the interior, which is simply impossible to do without. In order for the baby to sleep comfortably in his bed, it is necessary to choose the right design. Special models have been developed for each age. For which child, which is more suitable, read below.
For babies from birth to 3 years old
A special category is made up of cribs for newborns. They have a lot of merits. Mothers especially appreciate cribs for babies, in which a child at the age of 2 can sleep.
For children under 3 years old, sleeping structures are made only from natural materials such as wood and metal. Preference should be given to wooden structures, since they are the least traumatic, although they are much more expensive. You will not have to spend much if you choose a domestic model made of pine or birch, instead of an overseas bed made of solid beech.
A special difference between a crib from 0 years old is a lattice made of wooden round or flat sticks, located on two sides of the structure. For safety, the distance between the rods is made very small so that the baby cannot stick his hand through. Another feature is the two-level bottom, which can be independently adjusted depending on age.
For a grown-up child, there is an interesting function - a folding wall, which will be very useful at the moment when the baby learns to go to bed on his own. Most designs have built-in storage drawers.
Newborn beds 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 its practicality, small size and beautiful appearance, many mothers buy cozy cradles for their children
Convertible bed; The most functional, albeit large-sized model. It is very popular, as it consists of a bed, drawers and a changing panel. It will serve as a sleeping place not only for a baby, but also for an older child
It is very important to take into account the dimensions of the structure when choosing. Standard sizes are usually 120 cm long and 60 cm wide, and this is quite enough for a child from birth to 3 years of age.
When 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. A preschooler is no longer a toddler, but a completely independent child who knows what he likes and what does not.
The material and size of the bed must be chosen independently. The bed for preschool children is made of wood and metal. The dimensions of such structures in Russia are as follows: 70 cm wide and 140-150 long.
Regarding the shape and color scheme, you should not neglect the desires of your child. For a 5-year-old child, a bright loft or car bed will be much more interesting than a regular bed in natural wood color.
As for the design, you need to choose a bed with an even rigid base, which consists of slats or a solid plate. Do not "spoil" the bed with a too soft mattress. At such a young age, children need a hard surface to sleep in so that their posture forms properly. Buy mattresses with coconut filling, they have the necessary firmness and are environmentally friendly.
For the student
For school-age children, they make their own beds, the sizes of which range from 70 to 90 cm in width and from 180 to 200 m in length. A bed for a student should be comfortable and durable, as it will serve as a sleeping place for many years.
The design of the bed for an older child has a more discreet appearance. When buying such a bed, you just need to take a schoolchild to buy with you, since children at this age are very picky and there is a chance that your choice will not be appreciated.
If you wish, you can purchase any bed, here are just a few interesting options:
Regular bed with two drawers; made of light colored wood, laconic and stylish
Loft bed with storage area and work area. A very original and multifunctional design, made in a calm double color: brown and milky. An ideal corner for a child who prefers comfort and devotes most of their time to study
A bright model of a loft for a teenage girl, combined with a cozy sofa and a work area. There is also a storage space for linen (under the sofa) and open shelves for books and small items
Sofa bed in a gentle nautical style; very cozy and functional model, equipped with a drawer
Folding bed. Practical and ergonomic design, which easily "hides" in the closet in the daytime, thus increasing the space. The set includes a set with drawers and shelves, as well as a separate work area
However, you should not stare too much at the original design, since you can lose sight of the main selection criterion: safety and comfort.
