    Default Siblings sleeping together

    My master 5 & miss 3 have been sleeping in the same bed. They do have their own beds (and can be in the same room or seperate) and they just chose to top and tail in one single bed.

    Does anyone else have kids that sleep together? I'm not sure whether to buy a double bed (probably with the bunk over the top so they can seperate if needed/wanted) or just let them keep doing what they're doing.

    My daughters are 9 and 11 and often both sleep in DD1's bed. They have their own rooms. They shared a room for 7 years, so maybe they feel comfortable and secure...maybe a double bed is a good idea, more space.

    My girls are similar and I'll often find them in bed together. I think they just like the comfort of having each other there. They treat it as a 'sleepover' lol. DD1 has a queen bed and mostly find the girls jump in with her.

    My 9 and 12 year old share a room and often sleep in the one bed and their brother 7 comes in sometimes too. Mr 2 sleeps with us and the older kids co-slept off and on (with me or with each other) until they were maybe 3 to 5 and as i said still do now together some nights (and every now and then with us).

    My DDs also like to share. They share a room with a double and single in it. Will probably change to the bunk you described to have more floor space in the future. I think it's sweet and have no issues with it, they're obviously comfortable or wouldn't do it.

    My boys are 8 , 7 and 6. The eldest has his own room and the younger two have single beds. Every night they push the singles together and my oldest boy joins his brothers for sleep. I go in late to close their window and they all have arms around each other, sleeping peacefully. I don't see anything strange or hinky about it. They love each other and feel comforted being together. It's totally sweet.
