My 3.5 is currently in a toddler bed but we have just moved him into a bigger bedroom and I’m wondering what bed to buy him to go with his new room. I’m torn between a single, double and something novelty like a high sleeper or tree house bed etc. I want his room to be fun and I want him to love it but I also want something practical that lasts a few years and he doesn’t outgrow too quickly. Should I wait till he is old enough that he can tell me what he wants? Does anyone’s child have a novelty bed (with a slide or shaped like a bus or whatever) that they love or recommend a high/mid sleeper or shall I just go with a practical ‘normal’ bed and then should I go double or single argh only I could make something so simple so complicated by being indecisive!! Advice please!
That’s true thanks, I like to lay with him and chat and cuddle too and would be difficult in anything other than an ordinary bed, hadn’t really thought of that.. think I’m getting too sidetracked with wanting it to be ‘fun’
Practical is a solid wood single bed (solid slats) with a matching box underneath for storage.
A friend used a mid-sleeper safely for a 4 yr old for extra drawer storage underneath - sounds like your child’s room is large so this is unnecessary. All that sort of extra stuff costs a huge amount more money.
Single bed is so so so good for snuggles and reading in bed.
DD has been in a day bed with a trundle under (Ikea) since she was 2 - the bed turns to a double for sleepovers or a guest bed, but is a bit narrower then a standard single. She has a double at her Dads though so to begin with she would fall out sometimes but I just made sure there was soft stuff by the bed.
