  • It is a kids' room, nobody will care what it looks like. As long as it works for you and your kids, who cares?

  • My boys are 13 months apart and they've been in the same room since the younger one was 2 months old, so yes, I had a crib and toddler bed in the same room.

  • We did, yes, as we transitioned each child from the crib. It was that way for several months each time and it looked just fine.

  • My daughters share a room. We have them on one side of the room and the other is for playing. I think it worked out great. It really depends on how the room is. What I would do is set things up and decided what looks the best.

  • the boy had a crib and a single bed in the room for awhile, now they have a toddlr bed and single bed. It didnt look bad but we did use a toy organizer the break up the room a bit to give them both some space and keep baby toys seperate from big boy toys.

  • We had our older kids in one room like that from the time the younger one was 4 months. They loved it and it was the only option at the time. They shared the room until he was 6 and she was nearly 5 (they are 19 months apart.)

  • We did, we also had bunks & a toddler bed in one room. I didn't care how it looked, it had to be done. No pics though.
