    P.S. It'll also double as an adorable play space to spark their imagination during the day.

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for in my son's room.
    Assembly - you need a bit of muscle to get the screws in (some harder than others) but other than that it was very easy to put together." —Sheen

    Get it from Amazon for $154 (available in five colors).

    2. A KidKraft wooden racecar bed boasting a built-in bench and rails guaranteed to make your little co-sleeper ~vroom vroom~ out of your bed and race into their much cooler bed. (So you can *finally* get a good night's sleep!).

    Promising review: "Bought this for my granddaughter who was having a real problem sleeping in her current bed (always wanting to climb in bed with someone else).

    Promising review: "So easy to assemble! I was so excited for this bed that I put it together on my own while my husband was out. (45 mins max!) The gold is so adorable and brassy so it doesn’t look cheap at all! It’s very low to the ground which is perfect for my 2 year old. She loves her “Big Girl Bed”. Would totally recommend! It also came a few days before it was supposed to arrive which was a plus because I just knew this bed would be a dream!" —RR

    Get it from Amazon for $102.19+ (available in three colors).

    6. A Pottery Barn Kids Shelter bed, a cushy next step for when your kiddo is ready to move out of the crib. The high sides create a snug little nighttime nest, yet it’s easy for kids to crawl into and out of unassisted.

    Get it from Pottery Barn Kids for $399.

    7. A minimalist black wooden bed that sits low on the ground making it easy to climb in and out, is surprisingly reasonably priced *and* super sturdy. An unbeatable combo if you ask me!

    Promising review: "I purposely waited awhile before writing this review, because I wanted to see how well this bed held up over time. We've had it for 10 months now, and we're VERY happy with it. The bed has taken a beating with my 4-year-old jumping on it almost every night. Even with the arms needing to be tightened, I would still call this bed very sturdy. We bought it in black, which I think was pretty smart. If/when the paint chips, I'll probably just use a sharpie to fix it. For the price, I couldn't be happier with it." —Kittinger

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in 12 colors and multiple styles).

    8. chic and modern toddler bed that reviewers say is stable enough to hold up to your toddler, even if they insist on jumping around — rather than falling asleep — when bedtime comes. The best part? The neutral grey and white colors will match any bedroom style.

    Promising review: "Putting this together I noticed each piece has some weight to it which to me means quality. I’ve seen so many typical toddler beds and the wood used on most is not high quality and a lot of them I see on market place are broken in some way or another. I’m super happy about this purchase, I have no fears of my floppy fish rolling out of it in the middle of the night. It’s not hard to put together and I am glad it feels like one solid piece of furniture." —Nellawafu

    Get it from Target for $199.99.

    9. A Suite Bebe Blaire bed complete with a nontoxic natural pine finish that'll blend in with any decor *and* built-in guardrails to prevent your restless sleeper from rolling off the bed.

    Promising review: "Very cute! He loves his little bed. Easy to assemble. Worth the money." —Vanessa

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    10. An Ikea Minnen bed aka an ingenious *extendable bed frame* that can be pulled out into a twin-size length to grow with your child. Also, which parent won't truly adore the whimsical railings to keep them protected all night long?

    You'll def wanna snag an extendable mattress as well.

    Promising review: "Perfect toddler bed. I bought this bed to transition my baby out of her crib. I love that it is low to the ground so if she rolls out, she wont hurt herself. It is pretty sturdy and is a true twin size when extended." —DebPerez

    Get it from Ikea for $119 (available in two colors).

    11. A low-lying Hampton gray bed with built-in guard rails that'll make sleeping all by themselves easy-peasy by helping little ones feel more secure. Not to mention, the cottage-style piece is both chic and homey.

    Promising review: "So darn CUTE! Bought two of these beds for my twin grandsons, and they look so beachy, especially with nautical sheets and decor. They are pretty darn sturdy, and although they have a weight limit, my son sometimes cuddles up with his kids. If the beds break, we've been warned, but they have not budged. Very sturdy. They do take some finesse and balance to get them together, but I put both together myself relatively easily. Very happy with purchase." —SciGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $119.

    12. A bunk bed with an option to add a slide (!!!) and curtains if you have two kids to a room and are limited on space. This offers the perfect middle ground for toddlers and bigger kids alike, while making sleepy time fun!

    13. A 6-in-1 convertible bed so you don't have to keep buying new beds as your baby grows up. This baby starts as a crib and converts into a toddler bed, daybed, sofa, full-size bed with a headboard and tall footboard, as well as a full-size bed with a headboard and low footboard. So many options!
