Stephanie sent us an email: I'm pregnant with #2 in a relatively small, two-bedroom apartment. After several months in a bassinet in our room, the new baby will be moved in to share a room with his/her brother. At that point, brother will be almost 3 and we should be able to move him out of his crib and move the new baby in...

Question is, what do we move him into? A bunk bed is totally in our future, but what to do in the meantime? Are there good stackable beds so we can add the second level on when they're ready? (A crib plus fully assembled bunk bed is just too overwhelming in this room, which measures about 12'x10'!)

I found a link to the right idea here (shown above) but would so appreciate general recommendations on small-room-sharing and sleeping arrangments.

Any advice and suggestions for Stephanie are welcome...please add yours to the comments below.
