Daybed turned playpen!

This idea worked perfectly for Bill and Kelly Henson's five-year-old son, Michael, who has vision impairments and cerebral palsy. Michael loves to play in bed for a few hours at night and to scoot on his back. However, Michael quickly outgrew his crib, and the Hensons needed to find something in which Michael could play in and sleep in safely. They first tried bedrails, but later decided that they wanted something that was more durable and looked nicer. The Hensons then thought up a great idea! Buy a walnut daybed and turn it around, so the opening faces the wall.

Michael loves his new bed, and the Hensons feel assured that he cannot roll off. Thanks to this easy-to-do daybed concept, Michael can continue to have fun in bed, while his parents can sleep peacefully ! Kelly and Bill Henson, Jr. live in Watsonville, California. They have three children, Bill, 5, Michael, 5, and Steven, 2.
