Beds For Sleeping Only
A Montessori sleep bed is a type of bed designed for infants and toddlers based on the principles of the Montessori educational philosophy. These beds provide a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for newborns, encouraging independence and self-reliance in infants from an early age. They help to inculcate healthy sleep habits and to develop gross motor skills. In turn, it leads to improved sleep quality and overall well-being.
What is a newborn sleep bed?
Unlike a crib or bassinet, a newborn bed for sleeping provides freedom for children to visually explore their environment and make larger movements that their bodies naturally crave. As children become more mobile, a Montessori sleep bed allows them to address their needs independently. This way, floor beds prevent “mental starvation” and reduce nighttime crying.
Parents may worry about their child rolling off the bed, so these models have rails to prevent it. Toddlers can get out of kids' beds for sleeping alone, but it is so close to the floor, reducing the likelihood of injury. Also, the experience of sleeping in a bed like this teaches children about safe exploration and boundaries.
Who does a newborn sleeping bed fit?
A newborn bed for sleeping is a suitable option from the very first days. It is essential for little ones, the parents were near and always there for them. At the same time, it is easy for parents to teach a kid to sleep separately, and there is no need to use a crib or to take a newborn into the parent’s bed. Still, it is important to consider individual circumstances, preferences, and safety guidelines when making any decisions about newborn sleep.
