If you travel, take the baby in to your room at night to sleep, or have a two-story house and want to have the baby downstairs during the day, a port-a-crib might be a great option. Some people even find that a port-a-crib can take the place of a fixed crib. A crib is the primary bed you want to buy for the "baby stage". Some good quality cribs even convert into various beds that grow with your child.
Is at least one of your children old enough to sleep in the top of the bunk bed? While bunk beds can be a great choice for kids, the sheer height of a top bunk bed makes it unsafe for a younger child who still rolls out of bed. If you are going to purchase a bed now, and you have any fears at all that your child may be at risk on the top of a bunk bed, then consider the trundle bed more seriously, or wait until your children are old enough to handle the higher sleeping height. Many manufacturers recommend a child be over six years or age before you consider purchasing a bunk bed for use by a child.
