To think daughter should have a proper bed?

My exh moved a year ago, put all his stuff in storage. Since then my daughter sleeps on a blow up mattress. This has been OK given that she tends to be there max 3 nights and I have been willing to give him time to sort stuff out. But it's been a year, she stays for 5 nights during summer hols and hates sleeping on a blow up mattress that deflates over night. She has a medical condition which means she gets sore joints. I emailed ex last week to say she had mentioned the bed again.... She is staying there now.... On a blow up mattress again. Am I being unreasonable to think a year is long enough to get a bed out of storage?

A year is more that enough! Especially with her staying 5 nights!

A Parent should meet their child's basic needs, he isn't doing that.

He can't argue against this, he hasn't got an argument to put forward.

I meant to add, that in the spirit of not kicking up a shit storm... (She is meant to be staying again at the end of August) how can I suggest he gets her bed back to sleep in or perhaps she shouldn't stay

What age is dd? Can she tell him that she does not want to sleep in his house until he gets her a bed?

She's ten. Has told him she wants a bed. Not sure what answer she was given as she's still there. She doesn't deal with difficult situations very well so is unlikely to talk to him again, which is why I emailed him about it. Trouble is, he doesn't acknowledge issues. I don't even get a reply
