Moving into new bunk beds

Last year during our trip to my parent’s house, kids loved sleeping in the bunk beds that I and my brother used to sleep. Especially my son enjoyed the top bed.

As my daughter got closer to outgrowing her crib, we started thinking about how to setup their rooms. Out house layout has 2 rooms on one floor and 2 rooms on the second floor. Individual rooms for each child meant sleeping on separate floors, which is not very convenient because they still need us at night. So we decided to get bunk beds and keep them in one room until they grow older.

We got this multi-functional and practical bunk beds from Room 4 Kids. (Kids ages 5,5 and 3)

  1. The twin size beds can separate and be used as individual beds, which means even when they go into their own rooms. So this is our last bed purchase until they move out to their own places.
  2. The wide stairs by themselves are a great convenience for safety, especially when we need to wake my son up to take him to the bathroom in the middle of the night, or when my daughter falls asleep with her brother and we need to bring her down to her own bed.
  3. In addition, the stairs have drawers in them. We don’t have a lot of space left in the room, so all their underwear and socks are in there.
  4. The big under bed drawer with wheels is very spacious. We put the bed sheets, blanket and pajamas there.
  5. There was a deal; with the price of the bunk bed and mattresses, the drawer stairs came free. If you don’t want the drawer stairs, you get a ladder you can attach to the bed.

My daughter got used to her bed immediately. She used to look big in her crib. Now she looks tiny in the twin bed.

Since they are used to going to sleep in my son’s bed for a while now, they still sleep in one bed together, sometime on the top, sometime on the bottom bed. The big stairs gives us a piece of mind, if they decide to change beds in the middle of the night.
