Perhaps the most important purchase for the baby is a cot in which it will spend most of the time in the first months of life. Modern children’s stores offer a wide range of furniture, however, the most popular model is a cot with a pendulum for newborns. In this article, we will look at the types of pendulum mechanisms, their features and advantages, options for such beds, their assembly scheme, and also tell me what to watch when choosing a bed with a rocking chair.
What is a pendulum mechanism and its types
Each bed of this species has a special mechanism of pendulum type, allowing you to rock a sleeping place, while the frame itself does not move. Bring the bed in the movement will not be difficult: it is enough to touch your hand to the side, and she begins to swing. Sometimes the child is enough just to roll over from one side to another and the device begins to act.
There are three types of pendulum mechanisms, each of which has its advantages and minuses.
This species swings along the trajectory to the left / right, which imitates finding in mom’s hands, it is the most physiological. Beds with a longitudinal pendulum are recommended by the majority of specialists, as they contribute to the normalization of the intracranial pressure of the child. Thanks to the swinging from side to side, such a furniture can be attached to the wall and it will not strongly climb the room, it is very convenient, especially if the bed will be in the parent bedroom. Perhaps the only minus of longitudinal swinging for some moms may be inconvenience, as it is much easier to scold a baby back andad. It is for such parents that the next type of pendulum has been created.
The design is made like the cradle and conveniently swinging forward / back. Parents can calmly rock newborns even lying in their bed. In principle, the child is able to independently bring the mechanism into action, simply by blowing down his legs or turning from the sides. The main minus of the transverse pendulum mechanism is the need for a large space, since the lack of a free space can cause constant blows of the wall of the wall. Furniture can not be moved close to the wall, as possible with a longitudinal mechanism. Another disadvantage of this species is the lack of swinging physiologicalness.
The feature of this type of pendulum mechanism is clear from the name. It allows you to rock a sleeping place in any direction. The main advantage of this option is the possibility of alternating the longitudinal and transverse swing, respectively, the child will get used to both species, and not specifically to a certain. Not all the children are suitable for one or another; To understand how it is convenient to your child, you may need more than two weeks. Accordingly, the presence of two types of swinging will provide convenience and calm baby sleep. As a rule, the beds are bought for several years ahead, during this time changes may occur in the furniture alignment; having both types of swinging, parents may not worry about future permutations, since the universal bed will rise in any place.
It should be noted that any type of pendulum has one big minus: kids instantly get used to swinging, so it will be problematic to fall asleep on a flat bed. Optimal for young children is still a longitudinal way, but with the help of research it has been proven that children who are accustomed to both species have the best vestibular apparatus. Prish is recommended a model that is more accessible in finance and will take the necessary place in the room in the room.
Types of beds with a pendulum
Children’s furniture stores offer a wide variety of children’s bedrooms with a pendulum mechanism.
Classic beds for newborns have a standard case, without any additions. They have low cost and at the same time include everything you need for a children’s bedroom.
Transformers have the most popular among models for newborns, which is completely not surprising, because the sleeping place is growing here with the child. It is enough to buy one such bed and you can not think about acquiring next ten more. Among other things, transformers have bonuses in the form of a small chest with a changing table, as well as spacious drawers at the foot of the structure.
Round pendulum beds
Perhaps the most fashionable today are round models. The originality of their design and the opportunity to reconstruct the bed attracts an increasing number of moms and dads. Gradually, a small cradle turns into a bed for a three-year child, and then for a preschooler. While the newborn sleeps in the cradle from extra parts, later inserted into the bed, you can make a changing table; And when the need for bed will disappear, it is easy to transform into a table with two courses for giving.
The only disadvantage of such a bed is a high cost, which, in principle, is fully justified.
Bed pendulums with a box
As a rule, this species is a classic model with a built-in large drawer at its base. The box can be divided into two parts, it is very spacious and able to save a lot of space in parents’ cabinets.
Bed with a pendulum on wheels
Simple in movement The model on wheels is convenient for shifting. It is easy to move for washing the floor, it will also become a great bed if parents prefer to move her away from their own in order not to clutter the room.
Bed cradle with a pendulum
These models are available in vintage style and resemble cribs in which our grandparents slept. They have a beautiful design and have an exceptionally transverse view of the pendulum. Compact sizes of cradle allow you to put it in any place, even in the kitchen. However, the minus of this option lies in its dimensions, because children grow quickly, and therefore, and a small cradle will soon have to change to a full-fledged bed.
How to choose?
Thanks to a wide range, the choice of bed is greatly hampered – it is not so easy to choose one model among thousands of proposed. However, there are several tips that will help future mothers and dads to determine the purchase.First of all, it should be decided on the type of pendulum mechanism. It depends on the place that the bed will occupy. If it is assumed that the bed will stand close to the wall, you should take a longitudinal pendulum; If in the middle of the room, then you can take a transverse. Optimal is a universal version.
Availability Wheels for Movement and Built-in Box. If the room has enough space better to immediately acquire a transformer. Despite the overallity of such a bed, it will become a practical subject of furniture, which will serve many years. The purchased model should not have toxic smell, sharp corners or protruding parts inside the bedroom. Pay attention recommended for the presence of a special retainer that blocks the movement of the pendulum.
This item is especially important when the child can already stand on his feet on their own, because one wrong movement and kid can fall and hit the side.
With the assembly of this model you can cope and independently. First of all, you need to get parts of sleeping furniture from packaging, carefully check for all parts required fasteners and elements. Next, you need to carefully examine the instructions for the assembly and prepare auxiliary instruments. It is recommended to collect a bed right away at the place of her stay. For assembly, you will need a hammer, screwdriver, screwdriver and a reversing key.
Each bed has two walls: rear fixed and front, descending down. First, it should be attached to the rear wall side pieces of the bed with screws included in the kit. For this, it is placed on the floor, the outside, and then the installation itself occurs. Next, the process of installing the base of the structure is followed: it must be inserted into the intended deepening and reinforce with the screws. In the side parts there are special recesses, it is there that the front wall is inserted, to which the top edge of the base under the mattress is mounted.
The next step will be the assembly of the very pendulum mechanism, which is carried out by a compound of four components. With the help of bolts and washers on swinging boards, you need to install hinges. Next, the installation of hinges nuts as the basis of the pendulum design, after which you need to insert nuts on the washers without tightening to the end. One of the final actions will be the installation of a bedroom design and a pendulum support and fixation of legs with a side part. The last stroke will be the insert of the plugs in the spines of the screw mounts.
