Bunk beds and toddlers - not necessarily a good idea


Recommended Posts

Well we've just spent a fairly sleepless night at Kings after my daughter (2 yrs 4 months) dived off her top bunk bed and broke her arm. The poor thing now has pins in her arm and a cast for the next four weeks. I'm thinking of ways in which I can reduce the bunk beds to firewood. The reason for my posting was to say how lovely the staff at Kings were - without exception they pulled out all the stops to make her (and my husband and I) really comfortable. Thankfully (as I'm a little hospital phobic after being on the wrong end of cancer with mine and my husband's mothers) I never made it to hospital to have my daughter, and this is the first time we've had to visit A&E with her (I'd love to say the last, oh how I'd love to say that!). Thank you, thank you, thank you to all staff at Kings in the kiddies sections (A&E and Lion ward and theatre) - you guys do a fantastic job!

Your poor little girl, hope she's OK (I'm hoping she's old enough to think a cast is a novelty?), and hope you and hubby are OK after what must have been a horrible shock for you both!

I've been to Kings A&E once when my daughter was tiny, and I agree they provide a fantastic service, we're lucky to have them so close by.

Take care x

I'm thinking of getting a cabin bed for our almost 2.5 yr old, as really need extra space under it. The one we've seen has a good 6 inch lip on it. Could she really dive out? What about with a bed side guard on it?

Oh no, poor you all. How scary. Hope ryedalegirl feels better soon.

Well done to the ever-fab King's. I had to go to kids' A&E (mostly for reassurance) once, and they were kind and efficient.

    • Toyota RAV4 Dark Blue, reg. RK20YTW stolen from my drive.  Might have been dumped locally for a few days in case it could be tracked.  If anyone sees it, please contact the police on 101 and post a message here. Thank you.
    • Looking for a white kallax unit 2 x 4 if anyone is getting rid of one. Thanks. 
    • As it isn't law yet to microchip a cat (becomes law in June this year) then whisking off a cat with no microchip to get neutered and rehomed may well be taking someone's pet.  There was a proposal on here recently to "rescue" big ginger who looks in a bad way but actually has a living home and is being well cared for.  So before whipping him off to whip them off, make 100% sure he is a stray. 
    • I am curious dulwich dweller, as someone who claims to regularly use a bus you seem to be arguing for their reduction based on the fact that we aren't packing them in like cattle. Maybe that's the issue, covid has made people reluctant to use packed buses and by reducing them so they are fuller, some would say over full, then it both becomes harder to find space and discourages people from using them. 🤔  Whilst an empty bus is seen inefficient financially by some, it may well encourage more people to use it as they'll don't feel like cattle going for slaughter.  Or do you think that we need the Japanese pushers to pack more people into buses. ?
