This design is ideal when there is an age difference of at least five years between siblings. Two sisters, a six-year-old and baby, share this room. The specially designed crib is set low to the ground to maximize space beneath the bottom of the loft and access to the child in the crib. The bunk bed features a landing that slows a child as he or she moves up and down the stairs for added safety.
All three of our kids share this tiny bedroom. At first, when we moved the baby into the room, I was worried that it would stress the older kids out, but it actually works to put Rosie down with the bigger kids because they know they need to be quiet so she’ll go to sleep.
