Some told us to get a king if we plan to co sleep but we thought I king was just too huge. We just moved the new mattress upstairs today and now I am wishing we had gotten a King sized! The guy who helped us move it says he co sleeps with his wife and two LO's in a cal king and that we may find the queen too small
I am planning on getting an arm's reach co sleeper but this guy also said they started with one of those but ended up not wanting it and just wanting the babies in bed with them, and that we might find the same.
So the thing is our mattress is non returnable plus we pais a lot for it and can't really buy a king now. I think had we realized we could have afforded a king but not now since we already got the queen!
So now I am concerned because being pregnant sleep has become a hot commodity and I know will be more so when we have the baby.
So- has anyone done really well co sleeping with one baby and their dh in a queen- especially with a co sleeper attached? Or did we just make a really bad choice? We had people telling us- get a king, but others saying- no, a queen is plenty- and we got a good deal on this queen-. so- thoughts?
My husband and I have been co-sleeping with 1-2 of our kids for years on a queen. Right now it is my DH, then my son (who is 4), then me, then the baby and a co-sleeper attached. If the baby is not in the co-sleeper, then he is right next to it, then I am right there. It is ok.
We are thinking of adding a twin sidecar for our 4 year old. We have 4 kids and have co-slept with each of them. The queen bed has always been fine.
Good luck to you. With one, I think a queen bed will be ok.
