Popping in with a product idea
Hello all, We've been gone a while since my kiddo is 5.5 not a baby. However, I thought I would pop in to tell you about something I found a week or so ago. We raise my son's bed at the head with 1x6 blocks stacked 3 high. Real pain in the bottom. I found a bed base at Ikea last weekend that allows you to raise the head of the bed for twin, full or queen size beds. It has been great so far. Now he doesn't slip off of his ramped pillow nor does it hurt his bunk bed slats anymore. It raises to almost sitting or a more slight angle and anything in between. We must slant my son's bed as he aspirates at night and last year had pnuemonia 3x. I am so happy about finding this bed base. It's a bed base but they have three types Lovene, Landon (expensive- remote control) or lerback. We have the lerback b/c I didn't know they made the cheaper ones. My son was starting his usual aspiration cough last week but it's already gone with only 1 week being raised. Hope this is of some help to someone as you move your little ones to big kid beds. Karen & Joseph
