Sleep is such an important part of life for children. Many children suffer from a lack of good sleep and the results are not fun for anyone- cranky kids can be whiny or even hyper. They don’t perform as well in school as rested kids and they tend to leave their parents feeling frustrated and exhausted. For many kids, a new and exciting bed might be enough to make going to sleep a lot more appealing. Here are some tips on choosing good beds for kids.

One of the most exciting options is getting bunk beds for kids. Kids love to climb up on top and today’s bunk beds are a lot safer than they used to be, although you still have to follow the instructions and age guidelines set by the manufacturer. This is perfect for kids who share a room and it’s also a great way to save some space because you don’t have to place two beds side by side or use a double bed in the room. For this reason, bunk beds have maintained their popularity in kids bedroom furniture for many years. A captains bed provides a similar space saving function, with it’s drawers underneath.

One rendition of the bunk bed that can be adapted to rooms where only one child sleeps is the loft bed. The child still gets to enjoy all the fun of climbing up to the top bunk to go to sleep while you get the benefits of saving floor space in the room. Instead of having another bed in the bottom, a loft bed has a piece of furniture under it such as a desk or some drawers or cabinets. Sometimes kids with small rooms are forced to do their homework on the bed, which isn’t an ideal situation and not good for their backs either. With this type of kids bedroom furniture, the child has their own space to work that is separate from their bed.

Another variation on the bunk bed is the L shaped low-line bunk. In this case the top bunk is only around a 120cm (4 feet) off the ground, and the bottom bunk only has one end under the top bunk. This is the system we used when our three year old moved in with her older brother (aged 7). We felt that having a full size bunk bed was simply not safe with a three year old sharing the room, but couldn’t fit two beds in the room without removing all the other furniture. With this system not only could we manage the two beds, but the half of the top bunk not over the bottom bed had space under it for a good size set of drawers, and room at the back for a kid to hide!

On the down side, changing the sheets on the bottom bunk in this system was even harder than for a normal bunk bed, as the foot end of the bottom bunk only has about a one foot clearance under the top bunk! However, the two beds are completely structurally separate, so eventually we will be able to move the top bed into a separate room and use it as a loft bed, with lots of storage space under, making the set a good long term investment for our kid’s rooms.

Theme beds are popular with toddlers who are moving from the crib to their first “big kid” bed. This can be a scary and confusing time for your young one so getting a fun bed can really help make it something to look forward to. Princess beds are a lot of fun for girls. Boys can’t seem to get enough of the toddler beds shaped like cars and trains. These beds usually have removable sides that keep toddlers from rolling out until they are old enough to sleep in the bed without barriers.

Buying your kid the right bed will pay off for you and your family because you won’t be dealing with a tired kid and you will even get more sleep yourself! Take the time to choose a well-made bed that appeals to your child and you will be rewarded for your efforts. Choosing kids bedroom furniture that works for your house and your children can be time consuming, but in the end, it’s worth getting it right.

Helpful Hints for Expectant Mothers

Having a baby is one of the most wonderful times in a woman’s life.  It is a time that should be cherished, but it doesn’t come without its challenges.  Some women have trouble getting pregnant, while others encounter certain troubles during pregnancy such as heartburn and morning sickness. Here are some tips that should help you know what to expect.

Morning sickness is perhaps the most often mentioned side effect of pregnancy and it can be pretty unpleasant for some women.  Although it is called morning sickness it can occur any any time throughout the day.  It is most common during the first trimester and usually dissipates after that.  In general, you should treat morning sickness like any other nausea.  Snack on some saltines and take small sips or ginger candy.  Its also a good idea to keep a stash of peppermints or ginger candies in your purse whenever you go out.

Heartburn is another major side effect that happens during pregnancy.  This can happen later in the pregnancy as the uterus and grows and the extra weight begins to press against your stomach. This can cause stomach acids to travel up your esophagus and cause a burning sensation.  There are several home remedies for heartburn relief that you can try.  One method is to try to eat six smaller meals throughout the day rather than three large meals.  Mixing a half teaspoon of baking soda with a half glass of water and drinking it can also help.

For those women who are not pregnant yet but are trying, here are some tips on how to get pregnant fast.  The first thing is to be aware of is when you are ovulating.  The easiest way to know this is to get an over the counter ovulation prediction kit from your local drug store.  You can also sometimes predict this by measuring your basal body temperature, or your temperature when you first wake up in the morning, before you get out of bed.  Your basal body temperature should rise slightly at the onset of ovulation. There are also other ovulation symptoms to look out for.  Once you know when you are going to ovulate you should begin to have sex with your partner each day for about 5 days leading up to ovulation.  This will help ensure that there is enough sperm available so that one of them makes it to the egg.

Once you are pregnant and approaching birth, you might like to start thinking about what will come next. Baby sleeping bags are a great way to keep your baby warm and safe at night, but there is a whole lot more to baby sleep than that! Once you have got a handle on pregnancy and the wonders of birth, you might like to take a look at the work of Elizabeth Pantley, a wonderful baby sleep expert.

Whatever stage you are in, these tips should help you to know what to expect during your pregnancy and help you to deal with the challenges.  If you do experience any persistent problems it is always a good idea to consult your doctor.
