We have been thinking about a modular pine system starting in the “nursery” for a long time, as healthy, deep sleep is very important for babies and small children.
In the first few months of their lives, babies sleep for up to 18 hours. They process a lot of new information and gather new energy. As they sleep, a baby’s health, wellbeing and stamina are improved. During deep sleep, growth hormones are related and the immune system is strengthened.
As solid pine is not only good for your health but also valuable, we find it a shame that you can only use baby furniture for a couple of months. This gave us the idea of turning a crib into a cot.
The top part, where the baby sleeps, can be used as a toy box, and the bottom frame becomes the top and bottom of the cot. Simply buy the cot expansion set and carry on using your crib.
The cot set consists of another top and bottom, two sides and a set of slats. As your little one gets bigger, you can remove three of the side bars so they can get into bed on their own. You should still make sure they can’t fall. The slats can be adjusted to two heights to adapt as your child grows.
Once your little one starts to say that they’re too big for their cot and they want a “big” bed, you can simply turn their cot into a junior bed. You just need another expansion set with two bed sides, and your child can carry on sleeping surrounded by healthy pine wood.
