FAQ About Cribs For Girls
It is a bed that is specially designed for children or infants. Therefore, it can not be compared with conventional beds and is much smaller. In addition, it usually has a playful or colorful design, and only in rare cases is kept simple.
For toddlers, the size 60 x 120 cm is suitable, whereas 3 to 4 year olds can use the standard size 190 x 90 cm. For children or schoolchildren, on the other hand, the size of 70 x140 cm comes into question.
The material should be free of harmful substances. Therefore, carefully read the manufacturer’s specifications and also see if the bed was painted with certain paints. Many toddlers also like to chew on the wood once in a while, which is why dangerous ingredients must be excluded in any case. Therefore, natural wood, which has not been further processed, is suitable.
A crib can cost from 150 to 500 euros, depending on the equipment. Loft beds with additional storage areas, for example, are therefore usually more expensive than normal beds without compartments.
Every child develops differently, which is why no exact age can be given here. Some parents accustom their child to a normal crib as early as 15 months, while others secure their child with a crib until the age of 3. However, if your child is already able to go to the toilet on her own, or if the crib bars are therefore a hindrance for your girl, you can think about buying a normal crib. Sometimes the crib is simply too small. Here, too, it may make sense to switch to a larger bed.
A crib for girls can have the most diverse designs. Princess beds in pink or even animal motifs are often particularly popular with them. Let your child help decide when choosing the bed, so that it is not disappointed later. Canopy beds also look very nice and provide additional comfort.
You can see from the instruction manual how to assemble the crib. In some cases, this can be quite complicated. Some models, on the other hand, do not arrive at you in individual parts, but are already partially assembled. These are particularly suitable if you are not handy.
There is no exact recommendation, how long your child can sleep in a crib. This depends mostly on the size and weight. However, if your child no longer feels comfortable in the bed or the design is slowly becoming too childish, you can look for a new or larger bed.
That depends on the particular model. In principle, however, you should not overload the bed or lie down in it with your girl. Otherwise, the slatted frame will sag in the long run, so that your child’s back posture is no longer optimal and she may suffer damage later on.
A crib should not be placed in the middle of the room, but rather against the wall. Depending on how small your girl is, there should also be no dangerous cables or sockets in the immediate vicinity. The crib should also not be placed directly next to a heater or window, if possible.
If your child moves a lot during sleep, a fall-out protection can be advantageous. If there are potential sources of danger, such as sharp corners or edges, a corner and edge protector can also be used. There are also certain bed surrounds made of foam so that your child does not injure himself.
