So, after making my son's bunk bed the same old way my Mum always made mine (fitted sheet, top sheet, doona inside doona cover... All tucked in nice and neat) and breaking my back doing so in the process... I finally got around to doing it a different way... A BETTER way! Fitted sheet, NO top sheet (NO climbing up in his bed to tuck sheets in!) ds sleeps and then when he wakes up in the morning he simple folds his doona in half and then rolls is up, and it's placed ever so nice and neatly at the end of his bed! Ah.... Why hadn't I figured this out 3 years ago! I would attach a pic but have no idea how

OMG this is awesomeness (bunk bed related)

Anyway, no real point to this thread other than to tell all the other parents out there.. There is a better and oh so much easier way to "make" bunk beds without actually having to "make" them! Yeeha! Can't you tell I'm excited by this prospect of never having to make a bunk bed again (except for the fitted sheet), here I was just about ready to sell the bunk bed and buy a regular easy to make bed!

And to think, My mum just put fitted sheet elastic around the bottom half of the top sheet...
Mind you.. my mother still doesn't like that I am not a fan of the top sheet..

I'm a big fan of fitted sheets. We never used then as kids for some strange reason my step dad refused to have then in the house. No idea why. But now I am responsible for that sort of thing I think they are an awesome invention. I even double line them as in matteress protector/sheet/waterproof matteress protector/sheet sometimes as dd1 is a bed wetter.

So he doesn't have a sheet, just a big doona? I personally wouldn't like that - I always like the sheet over me, even when it's fairly warm. Also I think another layer to protect body sweat etc getting into doona haha. But personal preference obviously - my OWN solution is just not to bother making my son's bed hahaha!

lol I don't make the beds. There is no way I could have climbed onto a bunk to change bed sheets when pregnant with psd. I made DH do them when I needed to wash them but making them every day would not have been possible!
Plus with preschoolers and winter they tend to climb back into bed at some point during the day to play dolls, read a book for quiet time etc.
Do you really make all the beds every day!

I don't have bunk bed but have to agree that ditching the top sheet on my sons bed was the best thing ever. I used to think it would make him so much cosier but apparently that was in my head, he hated it, got caught in it and was so much happier when I took it off. I've now taken it off our bed too. I find just changing his king single that's up against a wall a pita so good on you for doing the bunk beds!

I've also taken the top sheet off DD's bed in warmer weather. Too much of a PITA, she hates it, and she's a very hot sleeper, so most of the time even just the doona is too warm, although in summer, she only uses a top sheet.
