    Default Lower bunk beds

    At what age would you allow your child/ren on the top bunk of the lower bunk bed?? They are only 130cm off the ground?

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't let my kids on the top bunk until they are at LEAST four...and then depending on the child. I think the biggest problem is not so much the sleeping part, but mucking around and standing on the bunk, which is when they are most likely to fall. I don't really think whether it is a lower bunk or regular makes much diff, it is still a long way to fall. I believe the manufaturer recommends 6 years old.

    Of course, keeping the (presumebly) younger child off the top bunk is a problem in itself...

    Dd is now in a top bunk as had to move the kids in together before baby arrives. We made sure we took the fan blades off the ceiling fan and she likes the lamp on so she can always see. I pile all her teddies etc along the rail too! But she only lasted about 2 weeks before being back on our bedroom floor grr
