Choose the Bed That's Perfect for Your Little One

According to Product Safety Australia of the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission, there are around 3850 children under 15 years old who are treated every year for bunk bed related injuries by hospital emergency departments or general practitioners.A bunk bed is unsafe for children, regardless of age, if it does not comply with the mandatory standard. It's important that kids' beds are not only comfortable but safe as well.Not all bed types are suited for all ages. Babies have Moses baskets or cradles; toddlers have cribs; kids have cot bedding; and older children have bunk beds. Whichever type you choose for your little ones, remember to consider the basic standards to avoid dealing with unlikely scenarios,like infant deaths.Types of Bed for Babies and ChildrenBelow is a list of the types of bed for the different stages in your child's young life: - Babies' beds - Bassinet - Best for babies less than one year old - Cradle - Same as the bassinet but usually heavier and rocks back and forth - Moses baskets - Portable bassinets with handles - Best for newborns until they are big enough for a bassinet - Co-sleeper - Great for nursing mothersbecause of the crib's removable side that allows it to be pushed against the parent's bed for night-time feeding - Can be converted into a playpen when the baby gets older - Can serve as a changing table - Portable crib - Can serve as a playpen - Back-up baby bed when travelling - Easy to set up and disassemble - Mini-crib - Ideal in a small nursery or in a corner of the parents' room - Looks like a regular crib - Can be adjusted as needed as the baby grows - Crib - Can be used for newborns until they are ready for the toddler beds - Can be converted to become toddler beds - Types of cribs:

10 Funny Things Seen on the Baby Monitor
My usual evening routine is to put my kids to bed, bring the baby monitor down to the kitchen, and sit at the counter, doing a little work or packing lunches for the next day.I take a peek at the monitor every now and again to check in on my little ones, and sometimes I am shocked at what I find.I never laughed harder than the time I caught my then 2-year-old standing behind her drapes, staring at her invisible friend and whispering to him. Creepy.I love my Summer Infant monitor because I don't have to miss any moments in my children's lives. I can follow their shenanigans and smile, laugh, or even cry at their silliness while keeping a safe eye on them.How many funny things have you seen on the baby monitor? I polled my friends and their friends; here's what they said.1. "I have a funny video of G on the monitor saying, "Mommy, Mommy, help me! Mommy, my shoe come off!" and throwing her bare foot up in the air." - Jennifer J.2. "Here is M pole vaulting out of his crib." - Serah M.3. "Headstands." - Emily O.4."My wild 5-year-old and 3-year-old boys keep testing my limits. I was watching them playing on the monitor one morning and they snuck into their sister's room because they heard her crying. They climbed in to give back her missing pacifier and then snuck right back out. The little sneaks!" - L.O.K.5. "We have a picture of Ash doing yoga in her bed when she was 2." - James P.6. "Half on and half off the travel cot on vacation. Didn't bother her a bit." - Meghann R.7. "Baby Jazzercise." - Sarah S.8. "My oldest went through a phase where he wouldn't stay in a crib or toddler bed. So before we succumbed to letting him sleep on the floor (which ended up being for about 4 months...) we had a period of time where he'd climb out and fall asleep in his chair." - Courtney H.9. "Oh man I forgot about this one. Fast asleep." - Emily O....and one of my own.10. Somehow her pants are off and she's alternating between jumping and doing downward dog. I thought this type of thing wouldn't happen until she was a little older. She was 9 months old here.Looking to register for a new monitor? Be sure to check Summer Infant's new Panorama Digital Color Video Monitor and have fun tracking all your baby's funny moments. The latest model features 180° remote pan/tilt, zoom capabilities and a hi-res 5" color display!This post is sponsored by Summer Infant. All opinions are truthful and my own.
