King, on the floor, with DD's crib mattress (never used in the crib that's in the attic - hahahaha!) on the floor - boosted by blankets up to the level of our bed. Not sure at this point what's gonna happen come June... baby will probably go in the middle... or, maybe DH & I will switch sides, and baby will be on my side, with a rail of some sort on my side (don't know if you can install a rail though, with a mattress directly on the floor....)

WOW! So many kings around here! We have a queen. I had dd in a basked hanging from the ceiling right next to my bed when she was newb. now we are all three cuddled like bugs in a rug. We tried to see if dd would sleep in her bed (in our room) but she won't have it.... maybe we'll upgrade to a king when the next one makes it's entrance.

I've got three monkeys jumping on the bed!!

we have a queen with an arms reach co-sleeper.... that holds my daughter;s diapers, wipes and my lap-top, also works as a guard rail since our bed is high. The babe and I sleep facing eachother, on the mattress... we are hoping to do away with the co-sleeper and get a low king sz. soon.

queen+twin, on floor. dd1 in twin next to wall, then me, dd2, papa. twin is "dd1's bed," with her own sheets, comforter. lately dd1 has been asking dd2: "you want to have a sleepover?" and dd2 will start the night off next to dd1, sharing covers. then dd2 will wake at night and say (well, whine, really) "i want to go back to MY bed," and climb over me to her usual spot.

hopefully one day before high school, they will move together into the double bed in "the girls' room, which currently is a toy/clothes room.

we spent the first year of dd1's life all in a double. when we got it, the queen seemed vast to us!

my signature is usually illegible

We have a king. I tried various other arrangements but my babies liked to be right next to me and I tend to roll over them to switch sides at night. Oh I wish I could have had one when my first was tiny but our bedroom was too small! Now that my one year old is mobile I have the bed against the wall on our side. It works well!

We have a queen, I wish we had a king, cause most of the time both boys are trying to get in. We've fit in there before, but it sure is tight!

we have a king size with a twin pushed up against it. We also have a co-sleeper on my side for Trinity. Lelani and Rosie are in the middle and dh is on the twin. All these people plus my kitty kat.

Just wishing i had a king size bed... we have a queen, and ds 1 now sleeps in his own bed most of the night, but when he crawls in with us in the middle of the night, it gets really crowded! (me, dh, ds1 and ds2)

Mom of (11/27/03) and (9/29/06).
