From baby crib to toddler bed!

Here’s a clever way to maximise the use of your child’s crib/cot as he or she transitions from being a baby to a toddler!

Instead of giving away or selling that cot (or before converting it into a totally different kind of furniture piece), you can turn it into a toddler bed. It’s easy to do – in fact, you may just have to turn it upside down – and it’s way less costly than getting a brand new bed for your youngster. And of course, it’s a bit of fun for everyone!
