    To the parents who have children that share a room..... What are their sexes, how old are they & does it work? Thanks

    Not sure if our set up counts because we have twins, they're 4yo girls and have been bed sharing from the start.
    I will add though that my sister (two years younger) and I shared a room from when we were about 4 and 6 up until around 11 and 9.

    My three children are in one room (we live in an older house and the rooms are massive!) I have two girls, 4 & 2 years old and then my boy who is nearly 1. They absolutely love being in the room all together. They have fun when they wake up playing and talking to each other before I get to them. But I suppose I have been lucky as they all go to sleep at the same time and generally wake around the same time too.

    My 3 yr old DS and 18 month old DD share. Early on it was horrendous, and if we had the space I definitely would have separated them.

    For the last twelve months it has been fine. They have the same bed and nap times, and wake at the same time. If one wakes in the night the other does not (anymore).

    I will keep them in together a while yet, I think they both really enjoy it now, and miss the other if they are not there. DS hops in the cot with DD in the morning, i just love the sound of them giggling and playing together!

    I have a 2 yr old dd and 3 yr old ds, they are in seperate rooms at the moment but I was going to put them in together as I noticed when we went on holidays and they shared a room they slept better. Do parents whose kids share find they sleep better/ feel safer?

    My 3 & 4 year old daughters share without any problems. If they aren't tired at bed time they just talk to themselves before they fall asleep and play in their room in the morning until DH or myself wake.

    I think my girls sleep better when they are in the same room.
