We got a king sized bed when pregnant with DD and all slept together in it until we moved her to a toddler bed next to us at about 18 mos where she sleeps now (she's 27 months). She still crawls in in the morning and sometimes needs some comfort at night but mostly sleeps through. I'm worried about a few things, mostly the new baby waking up DD during the night and DD waking up the baby (and me!) if we are sleeping when she wakes up. I'm also worried about DD not being careful when crawling over all of us in the morning. Also DD always wants ME in the night and first thing in the morning to nurse - not sure I want to be her go-to if I've just spent the night with an awake baby!
Would love to hear from anyone with experience with the family bed, or just to hear what your plans are around sleeping arrangements?
