I'll second the pack and play. Great for keeping kids where they should be. Worked for us when my son was little. It fit quite neatly on our fold down dinette!

happy camping

I have been thinking more about the crib side to enclose the bunk. I would worry how much room there is at the top - if the child can manage to get their body through that opening but not their head, they could end up dangling and strangling. Using the crib rail side with no opening at the top would be preferable. I think a hinge to the side (opening like a cabinet door) or a piano hinge along the top side would work.

The other issue is the space between the mattress and the wall. Many cribs are recalled because of that space - enough for a little face to get trapped. Is the bunk mattress firm enough and tightly wedged against the sides?

OK so in my emailbox today is a new recall -
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml11/11250.html

yes bunk beds because of a death of a 3 year old Iowa boy from entrapment, the space allowed his body to go through and not his head. He was caught where the ladder was up against the bed. There is a picture of the bunks & ladder and a description of their "fix". 30,000 bunk beds were recalled.
