Baby Bed Range

Available selection of baby beds on the market

Even before she was three months pregnant, my wife wanted to go and buy a baby bed. Naturally, I wondered what the hurry was all about. What would we do with a baby bed around the house that wouldn’t be used for at least another six months? But she was insistent that we didn’t have to wait till the very last minute and began to harp on certain aspect of my lethargic character. So I succumbed and gave in. More out of a lack of desire to retort than anything else!

Sharing Baby Bed

Now I have never before had the occasion to see, let alone buy a baby bed. In fact, even when I was a baby, I never had a bed of my own. I always shared a bed with my elder brother and it was only when I grew large enough to pulverize him in my sleep, that I was given a bed of my own.

When choosing the bed for your baby boy or girl, you will also have to consider the overall design of your baby room and other furniture that might be included.

So you can expect my shock and surprise at knowing that not only were there all kinds of baby beds available in the market, most of them actually cost more than the king size bed that I shared with my wife!

Baby Bed Range

That was not all. I don’t know about most other people, but I couldn’t believe the range of beds that were available! There was a range of something called ‘Bassinets’. Then there were the familiar (thank God!) cradles.

Then of course were the cribs. Rocking, portable, travel and all permutations and combinations. And finally, there were elegant baby beds that could burn a hole in your pocket to make your baby feel like royalty.

Today's range of baby beds is wide and colourful, allowing all kinds of permutations. Whatever choice you make, the baby bed should be comfortable and safe for baby, to ensure care-free sleep for both baby and parents.

It may come as a surprise to you but baby beds are not just made of wood. They come in all sorts of materials. There are metal baby beds, wood ones, plastic disposable ones (who would dispose a baby bed!) and even beds made of medicinal and therapeutic materials. They come with wheels, coasters, rocking attachments and in one memorable instance, with a dangling toy and battery operated fan.

No wonder the kids today are spoilt rotten. Imagine if they started their lives with such comfort, they would only grow up craving everything fancy. And the suckers that we parents are, we have no choice but to give in!

'Caspian' Baby Bed

Anyway, after spending over four hours looking over wooden, metal, plastic and porcelain beds, my wife settled on a hardwood ‘Caspian’ baby bed. It came with wheels (lockable) three position mattress support, and a one hand one knee release dropsied in case you came to the bed, doddering with a baby nestled in your arms and had only singular limbs to manipulate the bed!

As I lugged the extremely heavy bed to the parking lot, I thought about how I had spent the best part of my infancy rollicking around on the cold, hard floor or in the warm embrace of my mother. And I turned out well after all. But hey! Just because I didn’t get to enjoy the luxury of a baby bed is no reason for me to deprive my unborn child! My baby will sleep in his/her own bed. So, go ahead and choose the right one from baby bed range on the market.
