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.

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.
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.

Montessori toddler floor beds
As you can see, it’s easy to theme up a room however you wish with these minimalist beds.
String fairy lights and Tulle for a princess bed. Or make an indoor tent for your little adventure seeker. The possibilities are endless, which makes them so versatile.
These beds are so whimsical and adorable, frankly, I don’t think I need any more convincing. Anyone offering to build us one?
