are quite a few varying types of toddler beds in the market. The first kind I will mention is a
convertible crib. The great thing about
a convertible crib is that it will last much longer. Some parents also find that a convertible
crib eases the transition phase. Next
there is the "captain bed" also known as a storage bed. This bed has built-in compartments everywhere
- under the bed frame, in the footboards, even in the headboards. There are other types of toddler beds such as
loft toddler beds, futon toddler beds, and platform toddler beds; however I
think they are less popular and ultimately less safe for your toddler.
If you're not having problems, then there's no reason to switch to the toddler bed. Once he's out of the crib, it will be much harder to get him to stay there, and that goes for naps too.
My twins were great in their cribs until they started climbing out around 16 months. Then I got these crib "tents" which go over the crib and form a large tent on top, so the toddlers can't climb out. (My kids thought they were very cool -- they are see-through).
We used these until the kids were 3 1/2 (!) and then we went straight to twin beds.
Don't convert unless you absolutely have to. If he's napping and sleeping well, don't change a thing.
I have the same crib for my daughter when I went to change it I called the company bc I couldn't find the toddler rails that matched the crib.. They said that it doesn't convert into a toddler bed, just a day bed, and a full-sized bed.. I said NO it's a four in one.. their reply.." yes, a crib, a day bed, a full size bed with foot board, and a full sized without the foot board." I laughed and told them what a joke that was.. So my husband and I took the front off the bed to make it the daybed and went to walmart and bought a toddler bar for like 20 dollars in the baby department. She loves it and it worked for us without having to spend another 150 dollars for a cheap toddler bed.. good luck.. btw this crib has been recalled.. you might want to check it out
I just went on to the Storkcraft website for Canada and found some installation instructions. There are instructions for the initial set up, for converting to a toddler bed, and converting to a daybed. Here's the link . On the right side there are 3 links for Assembly instructions. The first is the initial assembly, the second shows the toddler bed and daybed assembly, and the third is a complete installation manual. Hope that helps!
I understand your frustration as I have put many children's toys, cribs etc. together over the years. It appears that the extra piece that you will need will be a twin bed frame. It is not included.
I finally found my instructions!! It's actually really easy to convert to a toddler bed:
Step one: Take out four screws (two on each side) of the front railing and top bar. They are the screws holding the front railing and the top bar to the side of the crib and the dresser.
Step two: Lower the mattress to the lowest setting.
Step three: Place the toddler bed railing in place. It can go either way depending on which side of the crib your toddler sleeps. We put the taller part of the toddler railing closest to the dresser because that is where our son's head usually is.
Step four: You'll need 4 1.5 inch hexagonal screws to screw in the toddler railing. After 2.5 years, I could only find two of them, so I used two 1.5 inch regular screws that came with the crib. On the taller part of the toddler railing -- the screws go into the 1st and the fifth holes. On the shorter side of the railing, the screws go into the 3rd and the 5th holes.
That's it.. You've now got a toddler bed!
