I think it could definitely work...we have a queen and after we welcomed lo#2 to the fam we sidecarred our crib that had been collecting dust...does one side of your crib detach? maybe you don't even need to buy another bed? many places also sell risers for beds, so you could try experimenting with them to get a fairly even height across the two...I used to roll a thin blanket/sheet and place it in the crack b/w the beds as an extra evener too...
Hi - Congrats on cosleeping - it is the best.
Just wanted to let you know I have been there! DH and I cosleep with our son (10mos) in a Queen bed. You didn't mention how old your baby is, but I just wanted say that I too was frozen at the edge of the bed, arm asleep, creaky neck, worrying if DH had enough room, hoping I wouldn't roll on baby, waking to adjust covers away from baby, etc for a while when we first started cosleeping.
However, as all 3 of us got more comfortable cosleeping, we uh... got more comfortable!
At this point we all get a great nights sleep squished close and I luxuriate on my back, side, you name it, as do DH and DS. But... I had DS in a basinette pressed against my side of the bed for the first 5 mos, so he was a bigger baby when he officially joined our bed. Perhaps that is why I was more comfortable.
Anyway, I'm sure you'll get some great responses from mamas who have rigged a similar bed situation. It sounds like it'd work to me.
Best of luck and sweet dreams!
