Making Sure Your Bunk Bed is Safe

A parents most important job in life is the safety and protection of their children. From the day our kids are born, we do everything we can to make sure that their surroundings are free from harm. We baby proof our homes, we make sure that they have great food, and we always make sure the toys they play with are age appropriate. But how can we watch over them and protect them when everyone in the house is asleep?

Bunk Beds are one of the most popular beds for youth bedroom furniture. First they save plenty of space in the child’s room. Second, there is something that kids admire and think is very awesome about sleeping high off of the ground.

Here are a few precautions that’s you can take when it comes to keeping your child safe at night:

  1. Make sure your child is age appropriate for a bunk bed. Bunk beds will let you know, like many toys, the proper age of children that should be allowed to sleep on the bed. This is a very over looked rule, and many times smaller children can slip underneath the rails. Have your child test out the bed before you buy it.
  2. The top bunk should always have a guardrail on all four sides, even if it will be placed against a wall. There should be no more than 9 centimeters (3.54 inches) between the bottom of the rail and the frame of the bed to prevent the child from becoming trapped between the rail and the frame.
  3. It’s essential to use the proper size mattress on your bunk bed. Make sure the mattress you buy fits snugly against all edges of the bed frame. If you buy an extra long bunk bed, make sure the mattress is extra long as well.
