10+ Toddler Floor Beds – Montessori Rooms

Have you seen the trend on Pinterest for toddler rooms? I’m talking about Montessori toddler floor beds. I’m kind of obsessed, aesthetically, and practically.

Our toddler isn’t tall enough to climb out of his crib yet. Or at least he hasn’t tried yet, but I like to be ahead of his development curve just in case.

Safe sleep for them, peace of mind for you.
I remember when he started pulling himself up to stand in his crib. It was terrifying because he was at the highest stage of the crib height and I couldn’t find the Allen key to adjust it. My dad’s response “he’ll be fine, we can buy one tomorrow” or something to that effect. Nope, not good enough for this stubborn and scared mama. I don’t want him bouncing out and head first to the hard floor. Nope! So after much searching, I found it and quickly lowered the crib bed.

The crib days will be coming to an end soon, I can feel it. We actually just turned his car seat around the other day and that in itself makes me feel like my little big man will be off to school before we know it. Ok, that’s a bit extreme, but you get my drift. It all goes in the blink of an eye. What is that saying? The days are long but the years are short. You got that damn right.

This month he’ll be two. Two! So I think it’s time to start thinking about transition time. As much as I want to fight it.

Like I mentioned, I’m kind of obsessed with Montessori floor beds. They’re so practical and take the falling fear from child and parent away. I think the one thing I worry about when it comes to making the transition is that little man will just get out of bed whenever through the night and start tearing his room apart. And not sleeping.

We’ve truly been blessed with having such a good sleeper on our hands. He’s been sleeping through the night since about six months on, maybe longer. But it wasn’t always this good. To read about how we sleep trained or baby head over to my post: sleep training and schedule making! Another thing that has made sleep so good for him has been sleep sacks. I’m still nervous about giving him a blanket at night. I also wrote about our favorite brand of sleep sacks here. They’ve been a must-have for us since day one.

Back to floor beds. What is a Montessori floor bed? I’m sure the words floor and bed make sense, but do you know what Montessori means?

Developed in the early 20th century by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator, the Montessori Method is a child-centered way of thinking about education and childcare. The Montessori Method stresses independence, freedom for the child (within limits), and respect for the child’s development.

The Land of Nod, design for kids and people that used to be kids
You’ve probably heard about Montessori daycares or preschools. The same rules apply. When I first heard the word, or rather, read it, I didn’t look into it. For some reason, I assumed it meant that the daycare was run by a church. Which for some would work out well but that’s not something that is part of our lives, not knocking it, it’s a personal choice. Long of the short, Montessori values of childhood learning and development are very practical, as well as realistic.
