We have a two-year old who's been sleeping in her pack-'n-play on camping trips but who we want to graduate to her lower bunk in our 28DSBH. She sleeps through the night at home but when daddy tries to sneak by the pack-'n-play to hit the TT bathroom at 3 am, she usually sits up and demands that we start the day!!!
She enjoys playing in her bunk and even laying down beside one of us, but she sleeps soundly in her crib at home so we don't want to start co-sleeping with her in the bunk. We have the cabin child safety-proofed but we want her to stay put and sleep (besides, she's an ingenious little one, we might wake up to find her hitching up the trailer or frying up some eggs...one underestimates a toddler at their own risk!). Without a barrier of some kind we're pretty sure she'll pop out of the bunk and roam around.
Our bunkhouse has the full bunks with the rounded radius end near the bathroom door (see picture), so the standard safety rail won't work. Has anyone come up with a good safety-rail or other secure method for keeping their little ones in the bunk? We don't want to turn it into a jail cell or "baby kennel" but we wouldn't mind a solution that felt crib-like to her - something she could look over but not scamper over or get her head caught in...
I know this may be a bridge too far and we may just have to wait for her to get a little older, but if there's a good solution we're overlooking we're all ears! We've searched for a purpose-made product but haven't found one, so we're thinking campers' ingenuity is our only salvation! I'm fairly handy so if you've built something that sounds like what we're looking for I might be able to replicate it. Thanks in advance...
