The second stage is age two and beyond. Once the child is able to climb out of the crib, you need to start thinking of other types of beds. Again, safety is the most important consideration. You don't want the child to fall out of a bed so you will be looking for something close to the ground or you will want to use portable side rails. Toddler beds or cribs that convert into a crib bed usually come to mind. Crib beds are a little larger than toddler beds but both can be used up to about the age of five or six, depending on the size of your child.
Here is something to ponder. Can a two-year old, a twelve-year old, and an eighteen year old all sleep in the same type of bed? Of course if you do it right. A twin size bunk bed or loft bed makes so much sense for a young family. You can separate the bunk beds at first for the two-year old and use just the mattress on the floor for a while. Then, use just the single twin size bed alone for the preschool years. Use portable side rails if necessary. When your child is old enough to sleep in a bunk bed (age six for the top), you can make the twin size bunk bed into bunks.
