My kids sleep together in the same bed every night..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

..is this okay??


We just recently moved and they share a room. I had to throw out one of their twin beds during the move, but we had an extra queen mattress. So I have them both in one queen until I can score a good deal on some bunk beds.


They personally like sharing a bed. Sometimes they argue and put the teddy bear in between one another ;) They are 4 and 5 year old boys by the way.



ETA- Sweet! My first featured post. I was wondering why my post got so many replies! Thanks for ALL your input ladies!

My kids have separate rooms but sometimes I will find my son (he's 2) "swaddled" in his sister's room. Apparently he wakes up in the middle of the night upset and DD will wrap him up and sing him to sleep :-) (she is 5).

I see nothing wrong with it as long as the bed is big enough for them and they are okay with it.

My girls are 4 and 5 and they asked me to push their twin beds together. I don't see a problem with it

They learn to adapt lol. My oldest kicks and squirms around, the youngest stays straight as a stick all night.

Quoting mitchiesgirl:

I couldn't have my kids share.... One is almost 11 and the other just turned 3.... My DD (3) always wants to sleep in DS (10) room but I'm afraid he'll roll over on to her lol... Plus he wiggles and kicks.

My girls each have their own beds, but almost always both sleep in one. They are almost 2 & 3.5

My 3 boys LOVE it when I put the bunk bed down and make it a king they can all share. They would sleep together in a twin if I let them LOL. I think if they are all ok with it, why not....I know it wont last forever.

Sure, why not.  I would love for my kids to share a bed someday, but I doubt my oldest will be down for that. He likes his own space.

My son and DD often go to their own beds at lights out and I find them cuddled together when I check on them. I think it is great bonding time.
