Thread: How to make my bed into a crib

    Default How to make my bed into a crib

    My bed is a little tough to turn into a crib because my bed is made out of metal.

    My idea was to attach crib sides to my bed so I could sleep in a crib at night but take them off in the morning or when somebody came around.

    I know what you could be thinking but I don't want hospital rails on my bed.

    Has anybody put toddler rails up on their bed?

    I'll give you a picture of my bed to give you an idea

    This is one I'm thinking of

    Not sure how I would attach it though

    I would need 2 though, my bed is in the centre of my room

    Even better if the measurements is 1.8 metres, but not entirely sure how I can move the rail with me, I think I'm better getting the folding ones because that will defiantly not fit into a packing box if we decide to move again or I move out

    This one sounds good, it can fold away too so I can hide it better

    Would the wooden rails fit into this box or be too big?

    I would go to Home Depot and get about 6 of the railings that look like fence railings and nail four of them together. The other two I would put hinges on and a lock between them to make a side open crib. Now if you want one where rails raise and lower; I would suggest checking out http://bedwettingABDL.com and click on AB Crib Plans and use whatever it suggests. Alternatively; if you want an inflatable crib which will be perfect for travel then I would suggest checking out the one available at http://awwsocute.com/adult-baby-inflatable-crib. It looks like the rails will be too big for your second idea on the packing box. The Precious Little One rails that you mentioned looks like they may could work as well. I would get 3 of them (assuming your bed has a headboard). But if you decide to be bold and not hide anything then my idea about checking out the rails from Home Depot or checking out BedwettingABDL's crib plans. I just now noticed that you are from the UK or as I like to say "across the pond" so I don't know what kind of hardware stores you have there to check out the rails idea; But I'm pretty sure they may have them.

    Have fun and stay little!

    Or these packing boxes, if I cut another one and slat it over the top, it should fit together to make a taller box, since they are 10 of these boxes, I would have to use a lot of tape though.

    (For fitting the wooden rails in a moving box when I move house)

    I remember telling someone of an idea to make a crib, but your bed is made of metal. Getting 2 long crib sides for the sides of your bed could work just fine though. Unless you get ones made of wood, paint them, and have metal at the bottom to attach to the metal of the bed. So that way you can take them on and off. The plastic crib sides for top and bottom are fine though, you could paint the wood to match them. But that's all I could think of really.

    The metal of my bed is a pale silver, so white wood wouldn't look too bad.

    The crib sides have a bit that sticks out at the bottom that I can slide under the mattress and it stays in place, I would have to buy 2 on either side

    There would be a slight 1 inch gap on either side but it would otherwise look like a crib, I'm thinking of buying canvass ones for when I sleep over at my nanas house

    I don't fall out of bed or anything but It would add a "little" thrill.

    Unfortunatly I've got to wait about 3 weeks because I need the money I have now for diapers, before getting my "crib"

    Not to mention snacks and bus fares!

    My bed rails are like toddler bed rails. I have to have them to prevent faals due to my Cerebral Palsy disability. They are 100% necessary for me as part of my medical care equipment.

    https://www.safetots.co.uk/safetots-...ard-white.html, I found the one I want so I don't have to buy 2, if only I had the money now! It actually looks like a crib as well!
