My daughter is going to be 3 soon, and we have something that works for us.

She naps with me in the queen bed when her dad is at work. She sleeps with me when he's deployed or out doing training unless she asks for her own bed.

When he is home, she sleeps in her own bed. She doesn't even complain about it... "Sephie, Daddy is here, you use your big girl bed." She gets an hour or so of cuddling with the two of us before we out her to bed and she is generally annoyed by not having all the room she would like, and is happy to go back to her own space.

Also, she has figured out that she is allowed to sing herself to sleep as much as she likes if she's in her own bed, but she can't do that with Mommy and Daddy. So she'll sing until she gets herself tired.

Some nights she's upset and fussy and doesn't want to sleep, and so we cuddle her a little bit longer. It's never been a problem for her to transition back and forth depending on Daddy's deployment schedule.
