Since discovering Lego and Playmobil, my son’s room has shrunk. We always knew his room was quite small but figured by the time he needed more space, he’d be ready to move into a bigger room in the basement.
To deal with toys that need a lot of room, my wife and I have been exploring ways to maximize my son’s floor space so he can play comfortably in his room. We’ve concluded the best solution is a loft bed. We quickly discarded the idea of purchasing a junior loft bed. They aren’t tall enough to be a lasting solution. Someday we’ll want to buy a desk to go underneath. Now we’re shopping for a loft bed.
Our son will be 4 in a couple months. I think he’s old enough but my wife is worried he’s a little young. She’s also concerned about him falling out of bed. He doesn’t currently fall out of bed and the models we’re considering have side rails. Still we both wonder, will the height be too scary for him?
We asked our son about loft beds and after seeing a few, he is very excited about getting one. However, until it is in his room, he can’t really know what it would be like to have to climb up there to go to sleep.
Is my son ready for a loft bed?
