Would like to put both of the ds's (6yrs and 2yrs) in the same sleeping pod but 2 regular single air beds wont fit side by side.The max poss width is 135cm.Really dont think they will be ok in a double as ds2 is a real fidget and will keep waking ds1 up. Dont want to go down the SIM route untill i have exhausted the air bed route as im sure they will feel happier on an air bed. Thanks.
Why do you think they will be happier on a blow-up? IMO / IME it is much easier to roll off a blow up than a SIM, and SIMs are warmer, too, as they provide insulation from the ground.
Otherwise what about a two-compartment blow-up?[[ http://www.amazon.co.uk/Coleman-Comfort-Phthalate-Double-Airbed/dp/B0030BGA6O/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1312234639&sr=8-4 like this]] as the wriggling of one wouldn't be as noticeable to the other?
Agree about the SIM, we all had airbeds til DS1 got a SIM for cubs camp and then wouldn't sleep on anything else! Try one out, you'll be surprised how comfy they are (especially if, like me, you were brought up on those argos value rolled up foam mats in the '80's...)
i dont know why i think they would be happier on an airbed tbh.....more like a 'proper' bed maybe? Just had a look online and the decent ones are very pricey!May have to look into this a bit more..i take it the deeper the mattress the more comfy they are?
We came back from a camping trip yesterday and had to replace DD's airbed while we were away due to a puncture. The only one available was a Camping-gaz model - don't know the details but it's grey with a flocked top layer and much narrower than the one it replaced, but still more than adequate for our 9yr old. Might be worth a look.
