If you do decide to purchase a bunk bed for your child`s room, be sure you purchase one with safety features. At the minimum the bed should have a secure rail on the upper bunk and a stabilized ladder. Avoid beds with no rail or with a ladder that is simply propped up against the bed.
Remind them that they cannot fly, so jumping off the bed is a bad idea as is rough housing on it, jumping on it or leaning off the top bed. Keeping in mind these few simple precautions will make having a bunk bed in your child`s room safe and fun.
For little ones, don`t forget mattress protectors so little incidents don`t become big incidents. Mattress protectors protect your mattresses from bedwetting issues by providing a moisture-proof barrier over the mattress. They also provide allergy protection with a barrier that dust mites and other bugs cannot penetrate if they`re already in the mattress. Mattress protectors are easily laundered and replaced on the bed.
A child that falls from the height of a top bunk and hits their head could be seriously injured. The good news is it is possible to purchase a safe bunk bed. Teach your child some general safety rules and add an additional bed rail to prevent accidents.
