If you’re like me, moving your child from a crib to a toddler bed brings mixed emotions. It’s exciting to see your little one so happy about being in a “big kid” bed, and they look so darn cute sleeping in it! But it’s also a little sad because your baby is growing up, and will no longer be confined to the safety of their crib. Turning your nursery into a toddler friendly room is a transition you will eventually need to make, and getting a new bed is half the battle. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the convertible crib to toddler bed sets, because I think the “toddler bed” just looks like a crib with 1 less rail. And I’m not quite ready to put my 2-year old in a twin or queen-sized bed just yet. If you agree with me, then you have to check out these adorable toddler beds. They are a perfect size for your little, and oh so cute.
1. Jenny Lind Toddler Bed
The Jenny Lind style is classic and timeless. It’s characterized by the spindly-wood turnings adorning the head and footboard and is a perfect match for your toddler. This bed sits ultra low to the ground and will fit any style toddler room.
2. Tufted “Fainting” Couch Toddler Bed
Oh me, oh my, these beds are to die for! They are perfect for wee ones and are so unique. You won’t see one of these at Babies ‘R Us! The upholstered headboards are ideal for toddlers getting used to sleeping on their own (i.e. jumping on the bed) and you can personalize the design with whatever fabric you choose. Oh, did I forget to mention that’s because these are handmade!?

3. Pirate Ship Toddler Bed
Ahoy mateys! This bed tops the traditional boy race car bed by far. Your lil pirate not only has an awesome place to lay their head, but a ship’s wheel, built in night lights, hidden toy box and book shelf. Good luck getting your toddler to go to sleep!
