Do any of your kids share a bed? Like a full size or larger? Do you think there should be a age where they don't share a bed?

My 3 yr old loves to sleep with us and recently we put her older sister(almost 13) in her room in a queen size bed while we get our oldest daughters room finished. I know that little miss ladybug will climb in with her sister. I go back and forth on if that is alright or not because of the age difference. My oldest said she doesn't mind. When she goes to bed she makes sure there is room on the bed for the 3 yr old in case she climbs in bed with her. (since putting the 13 yr old in with the 3 yr, the 3 yr old does not come visit us anymore in the middle of the night, so far has stayed in her own bed)

The boys share a bed. They had bunk beds until the Lukey Monkey decided to dangle upside down from the top bunk! So they had to go until he is a little older.

My kids do not share a bed. I don't see a problem with it, though. If your 13 yo is fine with it I think it's a nice "bonding" experience.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

My kids don't share a bed, so they end up sneaking into eachother's beds at night I don't have anything against it I just honestly wish I had a bed big enough for everybody. Even my 11 year old wants to be in our room all the time...

When Noah and Jayde shared a room for the first few nights I found Jayde in Noah's bed. On weekends I think Noah invites RJ into his bed so that he shuts up and lets him sleep longer AND sometimes I'll go in to get the girls in the AM and Jayde is in Sydney's bed and Sydney in Jaydes.. they swap

We have a few sets of bunk beds and my oldest dd has a full size bed. Everyone has their own bed but some of the smaller ones usually end up sharing. They seem to go through phases with it. I have a couple that will sometimes end up in the big sis. I don't have a problem with any of them sharing as long as they don't care. My oldest boy has never liked to sleep with anyone so no one sleeps in the bed with him unless we have company or are visiting somewhere and have no other options.
