Toddler Bed Safety

Is Your Toddler Safe in Bed?

A couple sits down to a nice dinner after their toddler is safe in his crib, when — BAM — their supposed-to-be-sleeping toddler bursts into the kitchen, proud that he has managed to outsmart his parents once again. Tots have a not-so-subtle way of communicating when they're ready for the next phase, in this case, the transition from crib to a toddler bed, or a regular-sized bed. Just as there are important ways to keep lil ones safe when sleeping in a crib, the transition to toddler bed brings with it an entirely new set of safety concerns.

Take the following quiz to test your preparedness for the inevitable transition to big-kid bed.
