All of my kids have their own room and they all end up sleeping in one room right now that theyre little I dont see anything wrong with it and I love how much closer they are. It helps them learn to share and pitch in. I think sharing is great! Ill worry about it when they are going through puberty and need their own space then...
Mine will be as OH wants his spare room I haven't worked out how I'm going to do things in the early weeks/months yet either. Baby will most likely be in with us so OH can suffer for his spare fecking room
I never shared growing up,well when we where really litle but I cant remember, but we are going to be a family of 7 now, this is my 1st LO but no 5 for OH, ok his kids dont stay with us but we still have rooms for them, luckily we moved last year but it was a small house but we where forced to moved and found a great old big house, with 3 bedrooms 2 living rooms and dining room and kitchen. So the girls 3 of them share a room , the son had his won room, then i had my office in the 2nd living room as i work from home which doubled as play room etc
then baby came along... lol...and the son is moving in with us now to go to college. so we had to rearrange lol
son got the 2nd living room..its like studio appartment for him lucky bum, my office went into the dinning room, which i wont use when maternity leave comes along.. and then sons room is now baby room and guest room for when my mom comes to visit.
sorry a bit long winded way to say the girls share a room and have done since they where young (even at there moms) and they like it, and miss them if they not in the room
we would have struggled in the other house, but as the children are young i dont think they mind its like an adventure lol
good luck! mine will have separate rooms. my daughter wont even allow us to stay in same room (like if we are visiting my parents or inlaws... )
i would suggest to prepare your son by putting the crib in his room and talk to him, my personal problem would be, that i would be scared to trust my 2 yr old to now climb in the crib to snuggle the baby and she would wake every time the baby wakes. maybe keep the baby in your room or living room until he sleeps through the night?
Oh im not worried about this at all. He will be three just after the baby is born and I trust him not to jump in the cot lol. Il keep the baby in my room until he sleeps through the night (fingers crossed he will be as good a sleeper as my son! Sleeping through since 8 weeks). And even then ill possibly keep him in my room for between 4 and 6 months as ill be breast feeding. In the mean time ill keep house hunting
