Toddler Bed or Twin?

I've been thinking quite a bit about whether we should move our little guy (who is still just barely five months by the way) to a toddler bed.

On the one hand, going straight to twin ensures we will get more years of use from this often pricey piece of furniture and its matching mattress.  

But on the other hand, toddler beds are so much safer for a squirmy little sleeper, as they are closer to the ground compared to adult-size beds. We'd also be able to keep using his cute crib beddings. Toddler beds are such great space savers, too! He would have more room for bookshelves, toys, and for general running around and being a two-year-old. Besides, toddler beds are so adorable!

See this one from Pottery Barn Kids:

Or this cozy looking design from IKEA:

And it would allow me to keep indulging in beautiful crib mattress-size sheets and quilts. How great are these Serena and Lily beddings??? (Although, 300 thread-count baby sheets are probably not an option for me hihi!)

Zutano makes nice ones too. I love this for a girl:

And this robot theme is often thought of for boys, but I think it's great for girls too!

Lots of great ideas for a fun toddler room. Here's a great post on Apartment Therapy about the pros and cons of this "transitional" size bed.
