The extra bed can be used for overnight guests or room sharing siblings. When desired, the bed can be separated into two beds again. If you choose and have the room, bunk beds even come in full sizes. This type of bed can serve the needs of your child for the entire time they are home. If the bed is going to last eighteen years or more, you will want to buy a good quality bunk bed as well as a good quality mattress.
Product Recalls. Although they rarely make big news, bunk beds and loft beds are not immune to product recalls. There have been instances when models have been recalled due to faulty workmanship, guardrail safety and potential for child entrapment. Most reputable dealers keep on top of bunk bed and loft bed recalls and remove those items from their inventory promptly. Still, as with all purchases, it is best to check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and do your homework before buying.
Longevity. With so many bunk bed and loft bed design options from which to choose, it is not hard to narrow in on a few winners. Most families are making this investment with the hopes the bed will last many years, so it is important to consider the bunk bed's functionality before finalizing the purchase.
During the "baby stage", the most important consideration is the safety of the baby. Bassinets and cradles make an excellent first bed but these can only be used for a couple months. The baby will feel secure but will outgrow them quickly. A port-a-crib is another excellent option for the baby years. These cribs can go anywhere you go making it easy to have the baby with you.
