We are a blended family with another one on the way. At present Miss 6 and Mr 2 have their own rooms, they have shared before at 4yrs and 10months. We are trying to find solutions to sleeping arrangements once baby comes. We only have a 3br house and can't afford anything more. We initially thought we'd have Bub in our room with us for about 1 year but my partner suggested Miss 6 and Mr 2 sharing again. I hadn't really thought about it but was wondering if anyone else has opposite sex siblings sharing rooms? Also, would it be a better idea to have Bub in our room for the projected year and then have him/her share with the same sex sibling from then?

Legally after a certain age of the oldest opposite sex siblings can't share a room.
We were in the same predicament, but with more children. Have 3 sons and 1 daughter in a 3 bedroom house, thankfully we are having another girl.
I would put bub in room with same sex once out of your room

Law or no law there is no way I would put op sex children in the same room once they were heading into puberty.
SIDS rec baby rooms in anyway so that's what I would do for now, than I would put the same sex children in a room to share.
