Do you really have room for a whole nursery?

I keep seeing posts and questions about "how to decorate the nursery" am I really the only one whose infant will be in my room? I am not going to make my other boys share so the baby can have his own room. Seems really selfish to me.

  • I only have one kid (my 3 mos old daughter) so yes she has a room of her own for a nursery. I can see what you mean though.

  • We had room for the nursery, but skipped in anyway. Seemed like a waste of money when I had already decided on co-sleeping anyway...

  • We own a 3 bedroom house and so we have an extra room for the baby. Our kids wont have to share a room. And when we have another baby we will be remodeling our basement and adding 2 rooms and a play room down there. So again, our kids will not have to share a room. You shouldn't assume that people are forcing their kids to share a room.

  • Not assuming anything, just asking a question. Worriedmommy your answer then would be yes.

  • we DO NOT have room for a nursery. We have 4 boys all under the age of 6 and only a 2 bedroom house with the potential for the upstairs to be a bedroom someday soon for the 2 older boys. For now we have 3 out of the 4 boys in one room and the baby in with us.

  • We are currently living with the inlaws and our 2 oldest share one room and the baby shares a room with the hubby and I. We are currently looking at a place and it is 3 rooms and the 2 oldest asked to share a room so the baby will more than likely end up with an nursery.

  • we moved our toy room downstairs so the baby's room is right by ours its small but just the right size for the little one

  • My sons already shared (8 and 2 1/2) because the room that will be the "nursery" is too small for the toddlers stuff even. It was used as a tiny office - we have to find a way to upsize or living space soon!
