For those that co-sleep, what size bed do you have?

We're tossing around the idea of getting a bigger bed, we have a queen now. It's always DH, Anna and I in the bed, and we've found when Abby is having a rough night, there just isn't room for all of us, so DH will sleep in there. Is a king-sized bed better for co-sleeping?

I would imagine the bigger the better. We have what is called a King sized here, but is really the same as an Ameican Queen size -- I gues everything relaly is bigger in the USA

I'd LOVE a king! We have a queen and it's really hard to fit both boys on the night we have to, DH ends up on the couch.

We have a Queen. I really pushed for a Cal King since I like my space when I sleep, but DH likes to be touching somehow, so a Queen was our compromise. Lily fits in with us just fine.

We just got a King Size bed a few days ago and I love it!!! My kids are all go to sleep in their own beds at night, but we usually end up with 2 of them in our bed sometime throughout the night. Well last night Gavin came to bed with us around 12:30 and Ashlyn climbed in there around 2 a.m. and I still slept good!! In our Queen size bed I would have been holding on for dear life trying not to fall off lol. (who knew such little people could be such bedhogs!!). But in our new bed we still had plenty of room So in My opinion, yes the bigger the better.

we fit all 4 kids with us in the King Bed LOL, but not anymore really, because 2 oldest are quite happy to sleep in their bunk beds. So for now we have 2 kids in king bed and it works.

We have a queen and if Dave plans on sleeping in the bed with Matthew and I much longer he better be buying us a king The baby isn't optional but he is! LOL

No seriously.... we need the bigger bed, and the sooner the better because our mattress has bit the dust! It needs to go it is really uncomfortable. We have a soft pillowtop and both wake up in serious back pain every morning Pretty soon I am either going to sleep on the floor or pitch a tent in the back yard.....

We have a king and there's more than enough room for the 3 of us, Brayden sleeps on my side and there's a huge amount of room left. So I think you'd be fine fitting a toddler in there too.

We have a queen with a side carred crib. Usually Marisa ends up rolling onto the bed during the night, it's tight but all four of us can fit. A King sized bed would be heaven
Thank you Jaidynsmum!
