Montessori Floor Beds have grown in desire for parents transitioning their little ones out of cribs and some parents even use them after transitioning baby from bed sharing.

If you’re new to the idea of the Montessori Floor Beds I highly suggest starting HERE with my Floor Beds 101 as this will fill you in on why I am so passionate about the idea of them!

My two favorite mattresses for this are:
Searching for a Montessori Floor Bed can be hard as they aren’t quite mainstream yet (but let’s help make that happen!) SO I hope this helps create the desirable Montessori inspired bedroom for your little one! And yes, It’s really this easy!
