    Default Bunk beds for 4 and 2 yo... OK or no?

    Hi all. We are due for no three in September and our two boys will need to share a room. They will be 4 and almost 2. I will probably keep my little one in the cot for a while but u want to set their room up. My older boy is desperate for bunks but I think he is too young! Thoughts?

    I think too young also. Nothing like a top bunk to send little boys crazy with excitement and climbing up being all silly. Mine would break an arm for sure.

    I think four is too young.

    Our bunk beds have a big warning sticker on the top bunks for age 9 and over to be up there. Also when we were buying them we were told the recommendations were for the child on the top bunk to be at least 9.

    If they're anything like my kids than no way, could you consider a single bed with trundle?

    The bed shop told us not before 6 for top bunk.
    We have the same ages and thought about it, but decided against it

    We use bunk beds for our 5 & 4 year olds and have for the past year without a problem. You can get ones with trundles attached and use the trundle for your 2 year old and the bottom bunk for your 4 year old?

    My boys were 5 and 4, the 4 yr old was too young for the top bunk. IMO you need to wait a year

    Top bunks are not recommended for a child under the age of six.

    Thanks all. Its a big room would easily fit two singles with plenty of room to play so I think that is the road we will take

    Get the single beds that can convert into bunk beds later. Gives them more room to play once they are old enough.
