That's why we've rounded up our favorite diaper bag essentials, from a few ideas as to what to pack in a diaper bag for the hospital to what might even be a bit of a "bonus" for mom and dad.

As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English journalist, poet and novelist. He was born in India, where he spent the first six years... of his childhood. The stories of his popular "Jungle Books" were written when Kipling lived in the United States. In 1907 Rudyard Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature – as the youngest recipient to date. Also he was the first English-language writer to receive the prize. ------ Kipling published his famous "Jungle Book" in 1894. It tells the well-known stories of Mowgli, a boy growing up in the jungle with animals and the laws of nature as his teachers. Furthermore the book contains stories of animal protagonists (for example the mongoose and snake-hunter Rikki-Tikki-Tavi), told as fables which use animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. It is also possible to interpret Kipling´s main work as allegories of the politics and society of the time. The "Jungle Book" is still one of the most popular works in English literature. "The Second Jungle Book" was published in 1895, and contains more stories of Mowgli and also of other animal protagonists. read more
