Though it may not always feel like it to new parents, a newborn baby spends most of its time asleep, sometimes up to 20 hours a day. Make sure they do it in both style and security with a great selection of baby's room furniture from Kohl's. Finding the right items for their room may seem daunting, but we’re here to help.

What to Consider When Shopping for Nursery Furniture
One of the most exciting parts about having a baby (other than meeting your new cutie, of course) is decorating the nursery. But before you can run to the store and start picking out items, there are a few factors you’ll need to consider first.
Safety is the most important factor to keep in mind when shopping for furniture. You’ll want to look for products that meet government safety standards and have proper certification showing that each item has been adequately tested. In addition, consider the style. You’ll need furniture that’s comfortable and can match the decorative theme of the room.
Finally, it’s always a good idea to invest in furniture that will last a long time. Look for bedding and chairs that are just as durable as they are versatile. If you're buying a dresser, bookshelf, changing table, or any piece that could tip unexpectedly, make sure that you secure it to the wall.
When to Make the Transition to a Toddler Bed
There is no specific age at which you must make the transition. Some parents do it as early as 15 months while others wait until kids are around 3 years old. One factor to keep in mind, however, is your child's height. Many parents upgrade to a toddler bed with a side rail once their child gets to be about 35 inches tall. Or, at least when the height of the side rail is less than three-quarters of their height. As a general rule, parents should prepare to make the change before their child can climb out of the crib on their own and possibly hurt themselves.
Here are 4 common signs that your toddler is ready:
- Your child is okay being unsupervised
- Your toddler asks about having a bed of their own
- Your toddler is climbing out of their crib
- Your child expresses negativity toward their crib
