Why Your Child Should be Sleeping in a Queen Size Bed
Just as infants outgrow bassinets, so too must toddlers outgrow their toddler bed. When that time comes, and you're ready to get your son or daughter away from their toddler bed mattress to their very first big-kid bed, your go-to solution might be a twin bed. After all, it's a perfect fit for your child — for now.
But, if you're wondering when to transition from toddler bed to twin size, have you considered upgrading your child's sleep space to a queen? What if we told you a queen bed may actually be the better option both logistically and financially for children over the age of 4? Keep reading and hear us out! Investing in a queen mattress now might save you from additional expenses in the future.
Why Your Child Should Be Sleeping in a Queen Size Bed
1. There's More Space to Snuggle
Sometimes it's hard to know when to transition from toddler bed to twin size — and as a parent, you want to make any transition as smooth as possible — especially when your baby has outgrown their toddler bed and mattress. Even if you have the best toddler bed, you'll want to consider upgrading to help your child sleep better later on. Oftentimes, parents worry themselves sick over the thought of their child rolling out of their new bed and hurting themselves. With a queen mattress, your child will have all the room in the world to toss and turn in their sleep without the same risk of rolling off as a twin or full.
Additionally (and a little selfishly), some kids over the age of 4 require some parental assistance falling asleep. Whether you have to read your little one a story until they fall asleep or crawl in bed with them after a nightmare — Mattress Firm knows that sharing a small bed can be a pain. A queen mattress offers enough space for your little one and you too! So, why wouldn't you want more space for everyone to be comfortable?
2. You Have Unlimited Bedding Options
While there isn't much of a size difference between a full and a queen, often times it's more challenging to find bedding for a full. Go ahead and buy the queen mattress now and you will be inundated with the amount of bedding options you'll have for your child for years to come! As he/she grows, there will be infinite sheet, duvet and comforter options to appease their style.
3. Your Child Had Room to Grow
Sure, a twin bed might be the perfect size for your child now, but with mattresses lasting upwards of 7-9 years, who knows how much room your little one will need to grow in that time — they certainly will need more space once they reach high school. Investing in a queen mattress once your child is over the age of four and has outgrown his/her toddler bed, could end up saving you major money in the long run as opposed to purchasing a smaller bed now and having to upgrade further down the road.
