The slats and connected bed frame should be able to take your full adult weight spread evenly over the entire bed. Although people often stand on beds, this is only on top of the mattress which evenly distributes the weight across all of the slats. If you find any weaknesses or cracked wooden beams, remove and replace these parts and ensure all connections and joints are tight. Your bed frame should now be complete, all you need to do is drop on the mattress and duvet and fix those hospital corners and the bed is ready for some serious sleeping. Creating a simple bed is really that simple, although clearly any woodworking bed plans you use or purchase will go into much greater detail, but hopefully this article has allayed any fears about the possibility of building your own bed from scratch.
Second, you can use the old crib mattress for a toddler bed. This will lessen the cost of your getting a new bed. You also wouldn’t have to buy new beddings for the new bed since old beddings on your crib mattress can also be used for this. However if the time comes that you need to buy new beddings, some stores have sizes only designed for particular beds. So instead of saving on beddings, it will even be more costly for you. Third, think of your toddler’s safety. Toddler beds are usually lower to the floor compared to the regular beds so it is a lot easier to get in and out of the bed. Railings also add security on the bed since this could prevent your toddler from falling off. Whereas if you will get a regular bed, you would still have to add railings on it so it would cost you additional bucks.
The disadvantage of getting a toddler bed is it can only be used for some time. These beds can only be used for babies about one and a half to three and a half years of age. After that, it would be useless. This can be just an additional cost. So if getting a new bed for your toddler is as easy as you think, put it this way: weigh the pros and cons. Remember a baby would be the one sleeping on it so it would require a little more caution. Think also of your budget. If for the mean time you can only spend this much for a bed, then better to get a less costly one.
