Assembly of the Davinci Modena takes several hours and is moderately difficult; some of the owners we surveyed advised that two pairs of hands make the job a lot easier. During assembly, owners should take care not to jar or jolt the Davinci Modena's vulnerable pine wood since the material is soft and susceptible to cosmetic damage. Once assembled, it may be necessary to tighten the screws from time to time, as they may loosen inside the soft wood. Buyers who wish to convert this toddler bed to a full-sized bed further down the road will need to purchase an additional conversion kit. Once assembled, this bed looks beautiful and is easy to move and manipulate.
We decided to go with a toddler bed and hopefully skip the twin bed! I absolutely hate twin beds. (They're more expensive than toddler beds and we'd have to buy a mattress and boxspring)! We have a mattress for the toddler bed and we bought the toddler bed used. So hopefully when my little guy grows out of this bed we can put him in a full bed (which we already have)…and he can use the full bed until he's an adult. And our second son can also use the toddler bed when he's ready.
Can someone explain toddler beds to me? My son is 2.5 years old, and I plan to keep him in the crib as long as possible. Those toddler beds are so cute and take up less space, so I imagine that when he's ready to leave the crib, I'll get one of those. What I don't understand is how those rails really help them stay in. My son, as with many kids, sleeps ALL OVER the crib, in crazy directions, and moving a lot. The toddler bed rails only reach about 1/3 the length of the mattress, if that. Realistically, I think they would only provide a barrier for his head and shoulders, and that is if he were to sleep in a traditional sleeping position. Do these work for wiggly kids? Just curious.
