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

..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!

 No issue.  Hell at one point we had 3 kids in one full size bed that are 2 girls and 1 boy.  This was several yrs ago before we got our bigger home and lived in a 2 bedroom.

I grew up the oldest of 4, then add 4 step siblings and a niece and nephew, no house we lived in had more than 3 rooms. We shared beds all the time. Now i have a hard time sleeping alone and i think this is why, but other than that i never really minded sharing a bed

My oldest two 7 and 6 like to share a room. My oldest had his own room and the 5 shared a room with the 4 year old but doesn't like it. So I took the bunk bed apart and moved it to the oldest room and gave the youngest the other bed. The oldest two are a boy and girl. Idk why she likes to share a room with him and not her little sister.

I think its great.
My girls share a room now but have their own beds. They end up in the same bed every night so when we move next month we are just buying them a queen to share.

My kids (DD is 4, DS is 18 months) each have their own beds but share a room, DD doesn't want her own room yet I've asked her multiple times. No matter how many times I would put them to bed separately DS would always climb into bed with DD during the night and most of the time DD doesn't mind. I see nothing wrong with it for now while they're young. I think DS likes to share a bed with DD because he bed-shared with me and DH until he was 13-14 months.

I don't see why not! I shared a bed with my sister most of my childhood even when we had separate beds to sleep in.

It's probably good for them! That's some good bonding, closeness time that a lot more siblings could sure use.

I like it:) I don't think it's a problem, why should it be? Family should like to cuddle each other.
