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.
During the "baby stage", the most important consideration is the safety of the baby. Bassinets and cradles make an excellent first bed but these can only be used for a couple months. The baby will feel secure but will outgrow them quickly. A port-a-crib is another excellent option for the baby years. These cribs can go anywhere you go making it easy to have the baby with you.
