Q:I have a 2.5 year old boy, and a second child on the way. I'd like to move my son out of the crib before the second one comes home, so he doesn't feel like he's losing his crib to his sibling. I plan to start with just a mattress on the floor, but eventually he's going to need a real bed. I thought about bunk beds, but he's going to be too little to use them for a long time....
The ceiling isn't too high either, so it might get snug when he's a teenager.
I grew up with a trundle bed. It was wonderful, because it worked for sleepovers and didn't take up a lot of space. Because it popped up to full height, when it is pushed up against the primary bed, it makes a short king size bed. My husband and I use it now, when we visit my parents.
Where can I find a decent quality, attractive, but not ridiculously expensive trundle bed? As a back up, do any readers have good suggestions for a plan B, if trundles turn out to be to esoteric?
