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.

One thought on “Planning ‘big boy beds’ for Reuben and Joshua”

  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.
