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!

 It is fine to let sibs of the same sex share a bed. My b/g twin grandkids shared a bed until they were 8. They had beds of their own but wouldn't stay in them they insisted on sleeping together.

His room is also far from my room and I'll worry all night lol because I won't be able to hear them
.... We make up for it one a week though.... We set up the air mattress in the living room, make a fort and have a movie/"sleepover" night and she is stuck to his hip lol

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.

And I think it's fine as long as they get along lol my son would love to sleep with his sister he always asks if she can sleep in his bed with him lol he loves his sister! (I hope that didn't sound too weird) he's 4 and she's 1

awe that is too sweet!! if my 2 yr old wakes up any of the older boys they wake me up grumpy saying to deal with this kid lol idk why he dosent come in here first

Quoting SamiJ18:

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 4 year old really wants to sleep with her big brother who is 5. He however says she bugs him. We coslept up until recently. He would rather sleep with me or on his own.
He can't pinpoint what bothers him exactly. She does snore and one night he came flying in our room saying there were monsters growling. She was snorning... lmbo.

She is happy to sleep on her own or with brother which is nice. She likes to think he protects her at night ;)

My 3 and 4 yr old girls sleep in the same bed.  They have bunk beds but 9 times out of 10 I find them in the same bed together by the middle of the night.  I don't see anything wrong with it.  They are best friends.  Didn't you share your bed with your best friend when you were a kid?

Nothing wrong with it in my opinion. My twin and I slept together for years. We didn't have twin beds. They are same sex siblings. There was a time all the kids slept together back in the day.
