Planning ‘big boy beds’ for Reuben and Joshua

Rough sketch of how Reuben and Joshua’s room might be laid out with single beds.

This evening (Tuesday) Jane and I sat down to plan buying “big boy beds” for Reuben and Joshua. How can they be that old already?!

The bed rails are now ordered from Amazon and we’re planning a late-in-the-day trip to Ikea this week to pick up a couple of Malm single beds. Then they’ll need new duvets and duvet covers. Fireman Sam, anyone?

It’s all part of a cunning plan to get them used to sleeping in single beds before we go away on holiday next month.

  1. I hope they don’t fall out of them! We bought big boy beds from Ikea but went for ones with a small bar on one side as we knew they’d fall out without them! We’ve recently moved up to adult sized beds (kids are 5 & 7) and we’ve had more than one falling-out-of-bed episode. Pillows and cushions on the floor recommended.
