A wooden teepee bed with a box spring
When choosing a teepee, the choice of material is important. It is preferable to choose a teepee bed made of solid wood or ecological wood to avoid VOC emissions in the child’s room. The paint that covers it should be water-based and without toxic solvents, specially designed for use in children’s rooms. When choosing a teepee bed, it is important to choose a strong and stable structure to allow children to hang different fabrics without the risk of the teepee collapsing
Some tipis are designed to lay the mattress on the ground. When the mattress is placed directly on the floor, the heat from the child’s body causes micro-droplets to form which cannot be removed. The floor will be wet under the mattress, which will lead to the proliferation of bacteria
Prefer teepees with an integrated box spring, even if it is positioned very close to the ground, the box spring allows air circulation and good ventilation. Always choose a natural fiber mattress for better air circulation.
The major advantage of the teepee is that it is not only a bed but also a playful space in which the child feels comfortable, which can sometimes reduce bedtime anxiety and facilitate sleep. However, be careful to set limits so that the child does not play too late...
