Low beds are a great way to encourage autonomy and freedom in the early developmental stages of your child’s life. When you provide your child with a floor bed, they can enter and leave when they feel the need, letting them regulate their sleep according to their body's needs. This independence helps them learn about physical boundaries and develop spatial awareness while staying safe thanks to the bed's low height. Plus, the frame lifts the mattress from the ground to stop mildew from growing! With Sprout's Montessori Floor Bed, children are free to interact with their surroundings at their pace, making the home the first learning environment.

1 Low + 1 High side is for beds arranged with a side against the wall. Put the high side next to the wall to help prevent wedging for babies who roll in their sleep, but aren't yet mobile enough to right themselves. If you arrange your bed with the head against the wall instead of a side, we recommend two Low Sides.
2 Low Sides is ideal for beds arranged with the head against a wall. The Low Side has a wide entry point that goes along the entire side of the bed. Mobile infants and toddlers will be able to climb in and out of bed safely in order to engage with their surroundings. This gives them the autonomy to play when they want to and put themselves to bed when they grow tired.
Scooped sides shorten the entry point for crawling infants to climb off and on. Under observation, infants can safely lay on the floor bed with an unobstructed view of the entire room, preparing them for mobility when they’ll be able to explore freely. Montessori encourages the placement of visually engaging elements such as mobiles and pictures within the baby’s eye-line, which are to be hung above and around the bed.
The Scoop Right Side has a high section on the left side and a the scooped entrance on the right side. The child will sleep with their head at the high side with the feet by the scooped entrance.
|The Scoop Left Side has a high section on the right side and a the scooped entrance on the left side. The child will sleep with their head at the high side with the feet by the scooped entrance.|
Flip the bed frame upside down to make a platform bed for taller children. As children grow older and are ready for a taller "big kid" bed this side gives added height. Depending on the size of the mattress, this side can last children through their teenage years.
|We recommend a mattress thickness of 4-8 inches. The twin size mattress pictured is 6 inches thick. This product does not include the mattress.|
|It is important for infants to have space to right themselves after rolling off the bed. For children under 18 months, do not place Low Side or Scoop Side closer than 12" away from the wall.|
|The High Side should be less than 1.5" or greater than 12" away from the wall. This will either prevent children from getting stuck or give them space to right themselves.|

"I have peace of mind knowing I don’t have to worry about my daughter chewing on the crib and getting toxic paint into her mouth, crawling out of the crib or one day years down the road having difficult transferring her to a regular bed. I love how the floor bed flips over for a seamless transition into toddlerhood, with the same bed! "
"The minimalist style is crafted so beautifully, and it assembled in about 10 minutes with no screws or tools. Ben loves climbing in and out by himself and we love being able to sit close to him to play or read stories before bed."
"Rhys never took to a crib, but he took to his big Sprout floor bed right away! The transition from mom and dad’s bed was smooth. And mom loves that she can nurse and roll away :) "
"We absolutely love this floor bed. ❤️ It gives my girl the independence she needs and I don’t have to worry about the safety. "
"The three main things we love about the floor bed design was its quality, the autonomy it provides our daughter, and most importantly how they made it safe with the curves on every corner."
"It’s official. Our baby is a big boy now. I may have gotten a little emotional when he was so proud to see his new bed. Fun projects getting done before baby sister arrives! "
