    I got bunks for dd1 & dd2 when they were 4&2 I got them from forty winks I think, they were $500 wood ones that come apart as 2 singles. I also got a set where the top bunk isn't too high. We have never had a problem or incident with them

    I'd also worry about the child on the top bunk needing to use the bathroom during the night and having to negotiate a ladder half asleep. I wouldn't risk it, to me the risk of them falling far outweighs the space benefit

    Sometimes bunks are the only way you can fit in your house though. We bought a small three bedroom house and we're a family of five. We wouldn't even have fit the other furniture in our girl's bedroom if we didn't get bunks, and we couldn't afford to buy a bigger place. That didn't really leave us with many options, unfortunately. I'd rather not have bunks...but unless we win lotto and can afford to extend our house bunks it is.

    This is why we have a bunk. There was space for the cot and a toddler bed just but no way to fit a single and a cot. We are in a 2 bedroom granny flat so there is literally nowhere else for them to go. Even with the bunk they don't have a huge amount of space!
