Easy

By Aleena Rashid - 20/06/2019 06:19

Today, I bought a flatpack, easy to assemble cot-bed for my baby. I spent 5 hours building it, but when it was done, I realised I couldn't reach into it because I'm 5ft and my arms can't reach and lift the baby. I'd have to throw him in. I'm suffering from back spasms as a result, and I now need to disassemble and return it. FML

Use a step stool.

What a waste! When you go back to IKEA, get some stilts (Shørtentäller) or a baby trebuchet (Kinderflïngen). They have everything!

Use a step stool.

This was my first thought too OP! A good step stool that isn't flimsy

That doesn't make your arms longer and thus it is still difficult to lift something from the bottom.

Um...you know cats can jump right?

lmao nvm read it wrong -.-' thought it said cat bed

Step stool?

stepstool[ step-stool ] noun a low set of hinged steps, often folding into or under a stool, used typically in a kitchen for reaching high shelves. ORIGIN OF STEPSTOOL First recorded in 1945–50; step + stool

stack some pillows or folded blankets to raise the baby's bed higher so you don't have to reach down as far. easier than replacing the whole bed

If a baby can't move themselves yet it is dangerous to put them on a stack of pillows.

Runs the risk of SIDS with all those pillows and blankets though
