Dear Camilla

In fact, some parents use a mattress on the floor for a period of time, with space enough to the baby and a parent, which is a rather secure choice, should the baby roll off the mattres on the floor:o)

Some parents choose to buy a junior bed, which in fact is the same as an adult bed, just smaller in size. Others buy the adult bed right away, which in the long run is the most economic solution, as you will only have to change the mattress according to the weight and support facilities etc.

I recommend the use of a real bed in the long run, as you risk draught lying on the floor. A bed allows you to sit on the bedside eventually teaching your son to fall asleep on his own, reading a bedtime story. At the same time, a real bed provides more security as the child is able to go to mummy's and daddy's bedroom at night, if needed :o)

I hope this is helpful:o)

Kind regards,

Helen Hansen
