Well, my grandson is beyond the size suitable for a crib and ready for a “Big Boy” bed. The problem is that he does not associate a bed with sleeping; that’s what his crib is for. When nap time rolls around, Mom or Dad will tell him it’s time for bed and he’ll head toward his bedroom. When they get there, they put him on the bed they have for him. He’s is not happy, instead he cries and points to his crib. When they concede and put him in his crib, he lays down and goes to sleep without a complaint. Apparently, he likes the crib.
So, it was thought that maybe if he had a bed that resembled his crib, he might be more agreeable to sleeping in it. Thus, this bed was made in a similar color with similar slats. The guard rail will give it a crib feel until he’s past the point of falling out of bed and then it can be removed. It’s ready to ship to Phoenix, so he should have it by Christmas.
It’s 1x pine stained with a walnut/red mahogany mixture and will comfortably hold a standard twin box springs and mattress. The rails attach to the head and foot boards with bolts and threaded inserts.
