Payton outgrew her toddler bed pretty fast. I would check on her at night and she would have limbs hanging off the bed every which way. This is due to the fact that the girl likes to s-t-r-e-t-c-h when she sleeps. So being the craigslister that I am I kept an eye out for a big girl bed for her. It took a lot of searching through princess beds and other girlie things until I found this really COOL bed. She loves it!(what kid wouldn't)? She eventually does go to sleep and even seems to sleep better now. Score!
