I much prefer sleeping on a floor bed even before I had my daughter. I guess it's reminiscent of sleep overs for me . Right now DD who is nearly a year old and I share the bed. We have plenty of room on a queen. We could add DH, but he's a snorer so he gets his own room. I like the added bonus of her being able to get on and off the bed by herself without worrying about her hurting herself. She's been climbing o on and off for several months now. The bed is on carpet, and I added a stack of those flooring puzzle pieces along the side at first, both to give her a step to ease climbing and to provide an extra cushion in case she falls, which she's only done twice or so.
Anyway, wanted to add that if you bring another mattress next to this one, they sell this contraption that you wrap around both mattresses and it has a fluffy piece that goes along the crack, and it keeps the mattress from sliding apart. We did that with two twins (beds, not kids)I believe, before getting our queen.
