The Kidco Convertible Crib Bed Rail War
I love my daughter, but she inherited my stubborn streak. This became very apparent when it came time to give up her crib, and upgrade to a toddler bed. She was two and honestly too big for her crib. She was tall for her age and easily climbing out of the crib. This was giving me a heart attack on a regular basis. I kept telling her to stop climbing out of the crib, but of course she’s my stubborn kid, so she will be climbing out of the crib thank you very much.
No, I Won’t Sleep in Another Bed
So, I asked my daughter is she’d like a to convert her crib into the toddler bed. She informed me with a balled up fist that defiant toddlers do so well that she was not a toddler, and she would not have a toddler bed. So, I decided that she would probably forgive me before she was 18 if I went ahead and converted the crib. So I did, and WWIII broke out. Converting the crib to a toddler bed was far easier than I thought. It literally took me less than 30 minutes to change it around, make up her bed with her new sheets and comfortable and put on the Kidco convertible crib bed rail. I wasn’t aware my daughter had that much stamina for throwing a fit and it lasted at least 4 times longer than it took me to make this crib into the toddler bed.
The Kidco Convertible Crib Bed Rail is Gonna Pay
Finally, after much holding, hugging and talking to during her lengthy outburst, my daughter finally decided that maybe her toddler bed wasn’t such a bad thing. Her favorite stuffed animal, NormaJean the bunny was there. So, I put tucked her in. Dad read her a story, and then we smooched her like always. I went downstairs and cuddled up with my guy. Suddenly, the crib bed rail was bouncing down the stairs. And there stood my defiant little princess at the top of the stairs. I walked up with the crib rail in hand and realized I had no tightened the strap correctly, and she was able to take it right off.
I Actually Read the Instructions for the Kidco Convertible Crib Bed Rail
And this time I put it on correctly. Amazing what you can accomplish if you actually read the instructions. I admit it; I’m one of the worst people about trying to figure things out for myself. The way this crib rail fits in a convertible crib is really cool. There are two sturdy legs that hold it up and then a single strap that goes through a small plastic circle that attaches on the far side of the crib creating tension so the crib rail can take some force of a thrashing child. All of my kids were busy in their sleep kicking and moving.
Finally, She’s Happy With Her Bed
The next day I was not sure what mood my daughter would be in when she got up. She was happy. She decided she liked her new bed and wanted a comforter with a dragon on it. I told her we could look into doing that. I went up stairs, and the Kidco convertible crib bed rail had made it through the night just fine too. The toddler bed war came to a happy close, and she started really planning on more things she wanted for her bed!
