We are committed to safety here at Newport Cottages. As you know, our cribs and bunk beds meet or exceed all current federal safety standards. However, we’ve made some changes to our bunk beds to stay ahead of impending changes to federal safety standards for bunk beds. Right now, it is recommended that bunk beds no longer have finials of any kind. We have eliminated the finials from all our bunks.The only bunk we have not changed is the Turned Post Bunk. Like cribs, the posts are fine as long as they are more than 16″ high. It is still recommended that a child be at least 6 years old before they sleep on a top bunk. We want kids to have fun on their Newport Cottages bunks, but stay safe, as well.
