I'm trying to decide what to do about bedrooms in our new house. Wondering what you think.
Mercy and Nathaniel have been sharing a room up until now but Nathaniel still sleeps with us for most of the night. I'm not sure at what point I should think about separating them. The new house has 3 small bedrooms. If you were me, would you keep them together and put the twins in the other room? (they'd only be napping in there for the first year probably) or would you separate the big kids now and worry about where to put the twins when the time comes? Do you think it would be easier for Nathaniel to transition out of our bed if he had his own big boy room? Having his sister with him hasn't seemed to help him want to stay in his own bed so far. (hence why he's still sleepin with us most of the night)
Just wondering how long you co-slept. (or plan to if you still are) If you have more than one LO do they both sleep with you? Anyone ever had 3 kids in bed with them and dh at the same time?

We transitioned our toddler to her "big girl" room recently (she'll be 2 next month). We didn't want to move her after the babies came, because we didn't want her to feel like she was being "replaced" by the babies (her nursery will become their room when they are ready to sleep in it). I'm thinking maybe if you give Nathaniel his own "big boy" room now and make him feel special, it might be easier on him than after the babies? Then later you can split-up the kids based on sexes or however you decide to do it. Just my thoughts...there's probably not a "right" answer
Our DD slept in our bed until 9 months, and then she moved to her own room. With the twins I plan to side-car a crib onto our bed and have them both sleep there in the beginning.
