Children's bedroom: when to switch to a full-size bed?
Bye bye cot
An important step in a child's life, a change of bed is a further step towards independence. Your child will be able to get out of bed on his own, day and night!
This change doesn't happen just any old time! Even if there are no rules, you'll notice some unmistakable clues:
- Your child climbs the bars of his bed.
- He's getting a little cramped, especially with his stuffed animals.
- He no longer wants to sleep in his sleeping bag.
Do you recognize yourself in any of these statements? If Junior is between 2 and 3 years old, it's time for a change. Parents, get your handkerchiefs ready and... the groundwork to change his little room.
Which king-size bed should you choose for your child?
Before changing your child's entire bedroom, its decoration and bed linen, there are several things to consider: the size of the space and your child's state of mind. While some children are delighted to grow up, others are apprehensive about leaving their cosy cocoon.
If you're looking for a smooth changeover, or if your child's bedroom is small and unable to accommodate a 90 × 190 cm single bed, we recommend a transitional bed.
The YOMI Junior bed has a streamlined shape reminiscent of a Daybed. It supports a 70 × 140 cm mattress. These dimensions are ideal for children aged 2 to 6.
Our other secret for a successful transition? A bumper to slip under the fitted sheet. This is a reassuring alternative to traditional bed rails. Made of soft foam, it helps children understand the limits of their new cot. It creates a protective cocoon. What's more, our Bumper can also be used with the open version of the KIMI crib .
Your opinion about the Yomi bed
Let real parents tell you what they think of our YOMI bed!
Luc, father of Juliette, 3
"YOMI has been with us for 1 year. The transition went very smoothly. Juliette is so happy to be able to come and see us in the morning on her own, without anyone getting her out of bed."
Sophie, mother of Adam, 5
"I had trouble fitting an adult bed in my little boy's room. The size of the YOMI was a good alternative. Plus I love its design. When Adam gets too big, we'll divert the Yomi into a little bench seat in our living room."
Marie, mother of Tristan, 4
"My son never leaves his YOMI, and even less so his Bumper, which is a great source of reassurance. Even on vacation, he wants to take it with him! "
