Bunk bed for my girls

My husband went to look for some bunk beds for the girls. It's something that we've been talking about for a while. My girls' mattresses are done, and my youngest daughter is outgrowing her small toddler bed. So, we just figured it'd be best to get a new bed all together. We thought a bunk bed would be fun. So that they both get a new bed. Besides, my son will be needing to get out of his crib, and he would therefore need a bed as well. Hence the idea of a bunk bed for my girls and the bed my eldest currently has will go to my son. Yes, it means that it's costly, as it means one bunk bed, and two-three mattresses. But I think we can make it work.

Just make sure your older girl doesn't let the younger one be on the top bunk, when my children were younger my older boy let his younger brother go up top and when he fell out of the bed he broke his arm and had to go to the hospital.

Wow, poor little guy. We were going to have my eldest on the top, and my youngest daughter on the bottom. We've explained it to them, and when we talked to them about it, they were alright with it. It could all change, but we're going to stick to that.

@ilocosboy Well, we seem to have found one that they like, and both seem to like, which we're happy about. So, we've put a little money down, and we'll pay the rest next week when we get some money in.

It's costly having kids, isn't it?

It sure is. There are so many things that we don't think of, when we first have kids.

Indeed a bunk bed is a good idea! It saves space and most kids have great fun with bunk beds.

It's what we thought too. Their room is small as it is, and my youngest daughter is outgrowing her small bed anyway. A bunk bed would save space, and they would both get a new bed. It'd be fair to both.

Good that your daughters love bunk bed. My daughters didn't like it, for they wanted a bed for their own and hated that someone is above them hahaha.

I can certainly understand that. Not everyone likes the idea of having someone on a bed above them.

@Macarrosel, Our beds here are so cheap compared to the prices of beds abroad, so expensive.That is why in our place we can have one bed each.

I put my boys in bunk beds when they were young It frees up a lot of floor space.

I'm sure it does. Since their room isn't terribly big, a bunk bed will give them more room to play.

My grandkids refuse to sleep in separate rooms and therefore have bunk beds. I was surprised to see how cool they are now. There are drawers built into the steps leading to the top bed. I'm sure your girls will love it for years to come!!!!

There are so many cool bunk beds to chose from. I would have loved one as a kid, but didn't have one. I'll enjoy seeing my girls with one. I'm excited for them.

It is true. They're worth it. The bed that we found is well priced, and we found a way that we wouldn't have to worry about the mattresses. So in the end, it's really just the bed.

@cacay1 They are pretty expensive. But it also depends on the place as well.

That seems like a great solution. We had bunk beds that you could separate and that's a good option, if ever you need to.

I think the one we're getting can do the same, but for the time being we'll have it as a bunk bed.

Too bad you couldn't find a good used one. We thought about keeping the set his mother left in our trailer, but decided to sell them. They are costly when brand new.

Yeah, it is a shame that it couldn't be used. But such is life sometimes. I'm sure the money you made from the bunk beds did come in handy.

@dodo19 we are still trying to sell them. People want to pay little to nothing for them.

@ElusiveButterfly well, once they're sold, that money might help, and it'll make room in the trailer.

Well, right now, it's not too bad. We really only need to worry about the bunk bed, as my mother-in-law offered us two twin mattresses she had. The bed isn't unreasonable.

Putting our children in a room and also in a one bunk bed, it can add their closeness as siblings not like when they are at each other's room and each bed, they we're not that closed, like us siblings. In my case, I also buy my boys a bunk bed and yes, they were very noisy before going to bed but their relationship as brothers, they are really closed.

Young people with children are faced with a lot of costly needs. And besides all, they usually buy too many toys to their children.

Very true. It is expensive. Although we are careful with how many toys we buy them.

Some bad accidents happen on bunk beds. I bought a bunk bed but set up as twins.

I think the bunks are the answer, they take up less room too.

That is very true. It did free up some space in their room. They're definitely happy. It was worth the money.
