Is there some kind of contraption that lives in the cupboard that can be wisked out for guests??

First Readybed?

Generally, I don't invite 3yo's to sleep over grin

blow up mattress? not good for more than a couple of nights in a row but probably ok for the odd night here and there? argos sell them and they fold down to nothing.

top and tail with your dc in their bed?

first readybed, defn - less potential for 3 yo to roll off & wake up at 3am

i have just bought a brill airbed and pump which packs up into a rucksack from dunelm ...

looks fab - it is a single size but very sturdy

about £20 IIRC

ours had normal readybeds

DD is nearly 3 and sleeps on a ready bed when we visit the GPs.

oh. are 3 year old sleepovers dreadful??

how long does a ready bed last for (as in ages) and do you have a link for the thing you bought ruby?

3 yo sleepovers are fine
Mostly

Getting rid of your 3 yo for a night and having a leisurely breakfast? Priceless...

ta da

haven't tried it yet, as only bought it today but have been looking for ages

DS also 3

Ha ha - it might be if you didn't have your 1 year old grin.

It's actually easier when the older one is around - with her, DS becomes stickier than dog shit to ones shoe.

BiscuitStuffer Wed 12-Aug-09 22:03:04

I mean, 'without' her...

BiscuitStuffer Wed 12-Aug-09 22:04:19

Ah an aero bed - we have a double one - they're fab. Do you just use a normal sleeping bag on top?

I love the look of the ready beds having a duvet attached and all that! Less cupboard rummaging for me!

I wouldn't bither with a "first" ready bed (won't get even use) and just get a normal ready bed, or an airbed and sleeping bag.

Or you could get a Kampa Junior air bed much cheaper and more comfy (we use one for camping) bigger than First Ready bed but still has the raised edges to stop them rolling off.

Washersaurus Wed 12-Aug-09 22:22:51

Kampa bed also comes in pink

BiscuitStuffer Wed 12-Aug-09 22:33:39

I think we need something without the roly poly edges - DD doesn't fall out of a single bed and it would only be a short distance to the floor....

aAARGH - now I am completely put off!

deepdarkwood Thu 13-Aug-09 09:53:30

I had a 1 yo at the time too biscuit stuffer - it was STILL priceless - hyou'll be amazed how easy and claming it is bathing one child, and getting one child breakfast....
