Ah I see.
Ah I see.
I personally like the idea of bunks. we had them as kids - no rails! I would only get one's with high rails and the style with a double bed underneath, but as in when kids are 8 or so.

I will never have bunk beds in my house after a colleagues friend lost her 9 year old son because his necklace (which he has been fold not to wear to bed but typical child did it anyway) got caught the ladder and he choked.
I know that this was a rare and tragic accident but it still sends shivers down my spine.
I really couldn't find any stats on this and would be interested to read it.
i got a 'low' bunk (ikea) for my 9yo.
i have to admit i pulled out the old bed rail i used when he was a toddler and put it on as he has a tendancy to wiggle around in his sleep!
I consider it from 3yo, depending on the child in question.
In my house, the 3yo has a normal (ground level bed) but sleeps in her 5yo sisters mid-height bed most nights, with her 5yo sister.
My 9yo and 11yo have high beds, but have taken to camping on the floor (with mattresses from out of the caravan).
My 13yo decided she didn't want a high bed anymore, so I've purchased her one with two rows of draws underneath - it is mid-thigh height.
My 16yo still sleeps in her high bed every night.
My 18 is sick of her high bed and planning on a low bed when she gets her own place.
I sleep in my high bed every night.
We have very limited space in the house, so the high beds were supposed to offer more space, allowing the children to have desks and draws under their beds.
