We have a queen with her three sided toddler bed up next to it. Its a regular convertable crib without the sliding rail. Thats where DD starts out her night then ends in the morning between us..
She used to be full time in our bed till she started needing her own space(she is a kicker!! )

Carlin and I have spent 4 years in an RV. with walls on 3.5 sides of the bed which is slightly narrower than a 'full'. I intended to make him a bunkbed over the foot of my bed but the materials didn't work out. and when we rented a room this winter we slept together in a twin for about a month, until I found a toddler bed and L-shaped it to my twin. it feels like we are sleeping together and I'm right there for any middle of the night crisis. I can reach out an hold his hand or rub his foot...

I can't imagine having him in his own room. How would you know if they threw up or anything??

I totally agree, the times my kids have gotten sick, sure it sucked as well all had to relocated, but the first time, my daughter threw up, then just laid down and went back to sleep, if I hadn't been there, how long would she have slept in it? :shudder:

My kid and I sleep together on a twin mattress. She's just seven weeks old, so for now, it works.

We had a queen for years, and we never had a sidecar. However, when I had a DH we also had an extra bed for him, so I was basically sleeping in the queen with a baby or two and he slept elsewhere. When DD2 was born, we had 2 queen sized beds in the bedroom, and DD1 started out in Daddy's bed and joined me at some point during the night. When DS was a baby, his dad played "musical beds" and sometimes slept with us (in the queen), sometimes on the couch, and sometimes with one of the girls in their room.

We have a queen with a side-car crib, not that dd sleeps in the crib.... She likes to sleep right next to me. Ok most nights, tough when I want to stretch out, but I get over it. She is so cuddleable!

We have a king and a side cared crib it is nice but I think we may end up putting a twin where the crib is we will see.

King. It's usually all 4 of us plus a cat in the bed so even the king is starting to get crowded!
post #31 of 101
I voted other. We have a king. On one side, with a about a 2 foot space in between, is a crib. On ther other side is a twin bed. We kind of play musical beds. Sometimes its just me and dp in the big bed, sometimes it is me and ds with dp in the twin, sometimes its me and both kids in the big bed with dp in the twin, sometimes its all of us in the king.

We have a queen, which is too small for us + 3 littles. But since we're only all in bed together for "family parties" (snuggles on weekend mornings) it's not a problem. Mostly the kids sleep in their own bedrooms (the girls sleep together in one bed, the boy sleeps with the dog) but they're welcome with us if they're afraid or just need extra love during the night. Our son usually joins us around 4am -- I barely wake up anymore, just lift the covers for him and scoop him close to nurse back to sleep.

We have a queen with a twin (daybed) next to it. We did the daybed so that I could nurse ds and then move instead of trying to move him when he is asleep, which never worked. When we first started I did a lot of bed hopping but now he does pretty well knowing we are right there and is learning to put himself back to sleep. I still nurse him throughout the night, sometimes I wake up and crawl back to my bed and sometimes I wake up in the twin and HE is in the bed with dh. It all works!

We have a king sized mattress that sits on the floor with a small futon next to it. Usually DD sleeps part of the night on the futon then when she moves up DH moves down to the futon because our bed just isn't big enough for a toddler who sleeps sideways, DD the cuddler, me the one who needs space and a body pillow (especially being 41 weeks pg), and DH who sleeps diagonal

This is our situation as well, but we are thinking of upgrading the twin to a full You can never have too much bed, yk?
