  • It’s a cute bed but I don’t understand why you would need side railing to prevent falls when the mattress is 4-6” from the floor?

    • Hi, mainly to prevent two things, first to avoid to hit the floor and him waking up (He rolls around a lot), and I wasn’t sure if he could get trapped between the bed and the wall, dad paranoia haha

    • Lol ok I do understand that but you could always pull it away from the side wall so that both sides are without walls. Oh and hitting the floor is actually the reason they made this bed. It not only prevents them from getting hurt but it also teaches them that accidents happen. They also stated that most children that roll out of a bed like this will not even wake up. Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand the fears! Mine had bunk beds as children and fell out of those a few times more than I could imagine. I know it hurt me more than it did them...lol!

    • Hahah I’m glad your kids are ok. I’ll take that into account, if it didn’t have the railing it would be easier for us to get out of bed (he likes for us to lay in bed with him for a while). I wonder how easy would it be to remove them. Thanks for the comments

    • Oh I’m not saying to change it out now...you’ve already built it. Maybe for the next baby...lol! Also...not a good habit of laying down with the child. My daughter in law did that with hers and the child still won’t sleep by herself at almost 13! Kids need to learn to grow.

    • If you do continue to sleep with the child you probably wouldn’t have any problem getting the rails off and just plug up the screw holes. Build a tent top for it, makes them feel more secure. Let them cry a few days when you lay them down alone and after a while the child will get used to it.
      Good luck!

    • Thanks for the tips. Most of the times he’s ok sleeping by himself (he’s almost 2 years old), he actually pushes us away from time to time so he can sleep on his own, most of the time that’s how it goes, but there are times he just wants us there. He already know how to turn the knob on his door so it’s common for him to go to our room at 4:30am. What we’ve noticed with this bed is that he feels safer, when he was still at his crib, he used to cry in the middle of the night for us to go pick him up, now, he just gets out of bed, opens the door and on to our bedroom (or sometimes he just goes back to sleep haha).

    • Wonderful! That shows he’s learning already. The people who make these beds also suggest that if the child can get out of the room himself you should put a gate at the door. If he knows how to open his door then he knows how to open other doors. At least put a security lock on your front and back door and put all medicines way up high where he can’t reach....unless of course he’s a climber...

    • I have a new granddaughter who is 1 1/2 and she gets in to everything!!! She’s quite a handful and I’m not sure I would trust her to not go outside because she loves the pool and could easily access it.

    • He doesn’t climb, and we do keep our front and back doors locked. The bedrooms are in the 2nd floor and we have a metal gate in the stairs :)
      By White Rabbet, on June 9, 2018
    • Great idea for metal gate in the stairs. The stairs  can be very dangerous for kids. I forget most people have 2nd floors. I never liked a two story house.ive had 2nd story loft or spare rooms before and the house I own now has a full 2nd floor but the previous owners never finished it with rooms so it has become nothing but a storage nightmare. We had thoughts of turning it into an apartment for my daughter and her two children but we will see. It would take a lot of work but at least they would be out of my home in the downstairs.
