  • Mine do. EVERY night in fact. They have since they were a year old and drinking milk at night. It is better than me waking up in the middle of the night to get them something, or worse, them trying to find something in the pantry at 3 am and waking up to a crash in the kitchen.

    They don't get anything that makes crumbs or a mess, and I vacuum under their beds weekly. Not a big deal.

  • I don't know anyone whoe does that myself.
    I won't even let mine eat in his room, let alone in his bed.
    But I know my oldest has snuck food in his room before...because I found a pork chop bone in his closet! LOL

  • I know in my house no food is allowed upstairs, water is, but no food. The only time I have had food upstairs is when I was pregnant and had crackers up there on my night stand. I am sure people have good reasons to let their kids eat in bed. Our family just doesn't have any.

  • The only one who gets to eat in bed around here (unless DH or I am sick) would be a nursing baby. Much easier to cuddle up and nurse that way. No one eats in their rooms here.

  • Because they want too! My kids ONLY eat at the table but why do you care what other do?? Its not like they are in your housing ruining your stuff. I mean these questions are getting ridiculous!
