A separate theme - the bed for twins. Much depends on how the parents are going to organize the kids sleep, whether crumbs modes are the same. If the kids are asleep and awake at about the same time, in the first months of life, the family can be only one standard bed.
The children are very tiny, can not move, so interfere with each other just will not have enough space. Kids can be laid up and down, and Volta. For convenience, the space can be divided roll of blankets. In fact, many doctors recommend even for newborn twins sleeping together. Being together, it is easier to adapt to the conditions of life outside the womb.
Although, there are opponents of this approach. They say that parents can confuse babies sleeping in a crib. This is dangerous, for example, when one of the children takes medication, and someone - no. Suddenly medicine will give the wrong kid?
Three variants of the organization of a berth for two kids
Whatever it was, the children grow up. And the question of how to arrange for each sleeper, still arise. What are the options?
- Two separate beds . In this case, the parents choose for each of their kids sleeper. Model - depends on the budget and living conditions of the family. Sometimes even a crib placed in different rooms.
- Bunk beds. Most often such products are made to order. Here the principle is the same as in the production of "bunk" teenage furniture. Roughly speaking, one of the classic type of bed is installed on top of another. On each "floor" their individual protective and removable walls. However, we must understand that after a year of a child who "lives" from below, become cramped.
- Adjacent the bed. Dimensions of such a cot -. 120 × 125 cm middle baffle is provided and laterally separate descending wall. This model should be put to the wall headboard, freeing up access to bed from both sides.
Important additions to the bed for a baby
beds price will also depend on the optional equipment. Whether you need an arc with toys Pelenators, mosquito nets - a secondary question. These accessories can be purchased at any time and easily do without them. But there is a list of additional attributes that are necessary to be defined once.
For example, if silicone pads on byltsah need? Experienced parents say it is comfortable during teething: the kid can "part" of the gum. Also think over whether to buy a bed with removable racks. These models take to eventually own the baby could go to bed or get out of it. Now, what else should take care in advance.
He should fit in size, because of its location in the beds provided an indentation. If less, cracks are formed, and if more - just do not go down. Standard single size baby cot - 120 × 60. There are cots round models, but they are mostly done on individual projects and complete already have a suitable mattress.
Choose products with a moisture-resistant coating or removable cover. It is better that he had a hidden zipper pouch: buttons child can tear off and swallow.
The material of which the mattress is made, should be natural. For children under one year are better felt products, coconut fiber, wool. Without springs with orthopedic properties. Children's mattress can cost from 5,000 to 20,000 rubles. If you buy a bed where the mattress is in the set, it automatically increases the cost price of the furniture.
If you decide to buy a bed with a rocking mechanism, it is important to understand that they are different. Pediatricians conservatives say that would choose the right bed for a newborn with traditional runners. Such models allow the kid to swing in the old - transverse movements.
But modern doctors say that more useful motion along the baby's body when the head is not shaken from side to side. This effect provides a bed with a pendulum. In this case, when pushing the bed base remains stationary while swinging only directly sleeper. But there is a pendulum with a cross, and a universal effect.
Another plus of these models are under the berth can easily accommodate a box for linen. And unlike models with runners, swing bed baby will not be able to swing independently. Pendulum mechanism can be removed when the child will grow up without backfillings motion sickness.
