I have a three bedroom house. My husband and I have a bedroom, my sister in law has her bedroom and my one year old daughter has her bedroom. I am having another baby (not sure of the gender). I am wondering where I am going to put this other baby. I will never make the mistake of having my child sleep in the same room with me again (it caused too many issues). I am not sure if it is fair to have my daughter share a bedroom with a newborn either regardless of the gender of the other baby. She needs her sleep too. Do you think it is fair? What if the baby is a boy, do you think it is right for a boy and a girl to share a bedroom? Do you think it is right for any child to share a bedroom? My husband should be stationed at another base in about a year, so I need to figure out how many bedrooms I should get for the next house too (thankfully my sister in law will not be living with us then).

We have a 3 bedroom house and 5 kids. There is nothing wrong with kids sharing rooms. Our 3 girls have one (they are 10, 8 and 4) and will always have to share a room. My son is 9 and has his own room for now. Our youngest son is 3 months and sleeps in our room in his own bed and will for a couple more months. He's already sleeping through the night but doesn't have a crib yet. When we get a crib we'll probably put him in with his brother. They will most likely have to share forever, too. I doubt we can ever afford more than 3, possibly 4, bedrooms.
My older son and middle daughter shared a room the first 2 years of her life. Then all 3 of the older kids shared a room for 3 years until we moved this summer.
