    Yes, thankfully it healed well so he didn't need the metal plate. It ruined their holiday though. They went to the beach for a summer holiday (for a wedding) and he wasn't allowed to run, swim or jump for weeks incase his eye fell out! She showed me the pics of the bruising and wowser....I've never seen anything like it. It was black as black....looked like someone had coloured in all around his eye in black permanent marker and his eye wasn't visible at all. He went through so many tests and they were worried he might lose sight in his eye. My friend is soooo safety conscious and she said she only let him sleep up there because the railings were so good, and so high, and then he fell down the stairs It was just before we were moving house and getting our bunk beds (three bedroom house with three kids and no toy room...they needed the space to play with their toys) and it panicked me!
    My middle child (almost 7 now) was up on the bunk for a while but she had a habit of throwing an arm and a leg over the top of the safety railing in her sleep and half sleeping on top of it so she couldn't stay up there because it wouldn't take much more for her to go over the top. I didn't want to risk it, however I do believe low lying bunks have an age rating of 6+...normal height bunk beds are 9+.

    I think it's too young. There have been some devastating accidents associated with bunk beds.

    I've seen a lot of injuries from them, heads in fans, lacerated chins, skull fractures and 1 death.

    The number one risk factor for a child brain injury is fall from a height.

    Therefore I would not have bunks in the house, and my parents wouldn't either.

    My mum knows a dr at her work whose older daughter fell off top bunk when on holidays and hit her head. They took to hospital who said everything was fine so took her home and sadly she passed away in her sleep. Scared me do much that we have brought a trundle bed instead.

    A trundle bed is just when you have another bed underneath the single bed, and it pulls out. We considered them, but we needed the trundle space for furniture due to the design of the room. There's limited wall space and a trundle just didn't give us enough room to put everything in.
