Right now i have bunk beds and a toddler bed in my kids room the 3 of them share a room. My 2 yr old has learned how to climb onto the top bunk and i can't seem to keep her off. Does anyone know of any ways to block off the ladders. theres one on each side of the bed and they are not removable and we've seen the toddle lock but for two that will be like $150 which we can't afford.

Tell ur 2yr old and keep removing her or teach her safety for getting up and down.

I'd say you need to teach her how to get back down on her own.

if you can't remove the ladder your stuck with teaching her safety on how to get up and down. also stress to her that being on the top means no standing or jumping. we have bunk beds and i took the ladder of butt my son at 2 still climbed up

We do try to teach her to get down but when she gets up there she doesn't sit it's like running and diving.

there is no way around it. just keep on her with it take her down when you see her jumping around on top. my son still trying to be a monkey and he has fallen off a handful of time

I'd wrap a sheet or blanket or something tightly around the bottom. So the 2 yr old can't climb up past it, but the bigger kids can reach to climb up over it.
