Mur-Man is getting close to the age of doing away with the crib and converting to a toddler bed.  However, my Mur-Man has no desire to crawl out and my mom (thrifty G-Ma) says you hold off until necessary.

My girlfriend Holly however…has done the conversion for Super F and came up with a great idea.  Utilizing a thrifty tent from Wal-Mart (or really anywhere) that fits perfectly into the toddler bed.  It makes bed-time fun, and keeps Super F in bed!

WHAT A GREAT IDEA!  And the best part is that it is FUN (especially in Super F’s room…it matches the great outdoors theme).

I also noticed the IKEA bedding immediately!  LOVE IT!

 PERFECTION!  So, who knows…Mur-Man may have a tent bed too some day!  Thank you Holly for the tip!

It's a Junior Dome Tent from Walmart made by Ozark Mountain I believe.

Most mother and father are far too acquainted with the issue of their children battling when they are sent to bed. It's bad enough at night-time, but getting them to take an mid-day nap is even more intense. And the most severe thing Beds in tents The more you battle, the more they deal with the issue, creating it almost difficult to get them to rest.

Did you ever experience something like you want to travel but cannot do that due to the worry about where and how your baby will sleep while traveling? This is the common problem for the parents who have infants or rising toddlers. Just for this reason, most of the parents completely change their lifestyle and stop traveling outside when they’re blessed with children. But, this is not an expected incident for anybody. Instead, they deserve to enjoy every moment of their time with the newborn babies or toddlers. Taking help from a portable bed like Regalo My Cot Portable Toddler Bed can be a brilliant solution in this regard.
