Quick "Bed" Question

This is a question for Moms in the US.

I need to buy a bed for the 4 year old. She has been co-sleeping all these days :-) and maybe will continue even when I buy one

Quick give me some product info please. Let me know about stores or site from where you bought yours, the kind of bed I should get, etc.

Twin size, soft pillow top bed if possible,girly (if she is a girly girl ie)sheet set and nice fluffy blanket will do the trick!:)))

Twin. from IKEA. Haver her pick the sheets. But make sure you buy a sturdy, firm mattress because the kdis will jump on it.

You can also get a cool bed to go with the mattress - low bunk bed with slides, or one of those EZ twist frames (less than $30, worked great for my daughter)...

I converted my 2 yr old's crib into a bed (full size) last year and I dont regret my decision. I prefered the full to twin since, one of us could also lie down with her comfortably till she got used to sleeping on her own. My doc said that kids dont need soft matresses and it is better to get them something on the harder side since their bones are soft. Hope this helps!

Thanks Girls. I decided on the Brekka from IKEA finally. One con it has slatted bed base which might break on jumping. But the bed bases come very cheap and can be replaced, so shall give it a try.
As DotMom & Hema said I am going to get a good firm mattress.

And Asha yes, I need to get a Dora bedding set ;-)
And after all that maybe it will be her Dad who will be sleeping on it.

er, sorry for such a late comment. We started off with a twin bed, but turned out each night I had to lay next to my daughter till she fell asleep (now if you have inculcaletd all the right sleeping habits in little S and are able to simply say good-night tuck her in and leave that's great. But we eventually eneded up buying a full (little smaller than queen but bigger than twin) as I ended up sleeping with her more than half the time. Try 1 adult + child in a twin! Of course IKEA is a very good place for a reasonable priced as well good looking bed for a child.
Good luck transitioning her to her own bed - may she stay there all night! :-)

Oh yes and our Ikea bed has survived some jumping.
