    Default Living arrangements

    I am wondering if there's anyone who has lived in a one bedroom place with their child before? My boyfriend and I have been talking and he lives in a one bedroom studio apartment. We were thinking of living in there for six months o get financially secure and then getting our own place.
    DS would have hs own bed but in the same room as us.
    My bf works afternoons/nights so nothing would change about the routine.

    In all honesty, we live in a 3brm house and me, dd and the 2 furbies share one room. I have bunk beds in the guest room where the aircon is and dd sleeps on the top bunk when we sleep in there, but until recently only slept on the bed with me.

    I know a family, mum, dad and 2 DS who live in a one bedroom apartment. The DH works away but it was what they could afford to buy and it's not long term.They also have a small dog. It works well for them because the parents can sleep better at night knowing they are not financially struggling with a mortgage they can't afford.

    If it was me I would do it

    We live in a 3 bedroom but 9 times out of 10 the girls are in my bedroom either sleeping, watching tv or playing hardly ever in their own rooms

    when i was pregnant we moved to our property and lived in a single room shed (8 x 6). he was born and we (hubby, ds and i) all lived in there until he turned 7

    i actually thought it was great (although everyone always commented on it...) i always knew what he was doing, it was a small area to clean and he has grown up a very responsible, independant boy.

    we have since built our house on the property and welcomed baby #2.

    i say go for it!
