I would. If it means you get through, get more sleep, everyone happy then Yup I would.
At the moment by 1 & 4 year old go to bed in their own beds in their own rooms and baby I get between 12-2am when she wakes and the 4 year old I'd welcome to come in if he is wakes up. Some nights he beats his sister to our bed (we have a king so we all fit) but he would sleep through most nights.

I did at various times in the last 5 years with DD1 and for various reasons (constant night waking, teething, missing dad, bad dreams, big storm etc). She knows where her bed is and will happily sleep there when she wants to (which is more often than not now). I also co sleep with DD2 (2 months old) most nights (not together) and will do the same with her as she grows. i don't think it's such a big issue for me (unless you want space or privacy) I just found that when DD1 felt confident in herself she was happy to be in her own bed. She sometimes now lays in our bed (or me in hers) and will say - ok, you can go now, I want to sleep, or I'm going to bed now I want to sleep!

I'm just reading Pinky McKay's book and I love the three questions that she encourages parents to ask about any decision...
1) Is it safe?
2) Is it respectful to the child?
3) Does it feel right to you?
If you say yes to all these questions, then go ahead. Different families might have different answers to these questions, but you have to do what is right for you. Good luck!

We are at home now and she slept through again last night in her cot in her room... But I do remember with DD1 she was in the port a cot in our room for a couple of months at some point too... Fingers crossed she's over this 'phase'... Roll on the next phase, LOL.
