Some baby and toddler milestones come naturally, while others take a little extra effort on Mom and Dad's behalf. The transition from a crib to a "big-kid bed" often falls into the latter category. It takes long enough to get babies to get a good night's rest, then before you know it, it's time to introduce the bed, and a whole new world opens up. These 10 beds won't just make the idea of laying their heads to rest in a real bed acceptable, they'll make it fun!
If you've got multiple kids sharing a room (or want to be prepared for future slumber parties), bunk beds are the best way to accommodate two kids while saving space. This John Deere-inspired tractor bunk  that was featured on Apartment Therapy would be a dream come true for your little truck lover.
