At what age or weight did you put them together? What size bed did they use? How did they like it and was rhe transition from co sleeping with tou easier? Really wating my kids to bedshare when the youngest is a bit older but not sure what age would be best.

I bed shared with my sister for years - we had seperate beds, but we would push our bed together to sleep - from like ages 2 and 4 to like 11 and 13.



My kids like sleeping in each others beds, too. All of them are under age 10, but the youngest (almost 2) always sleeps in her own bed.

Would you feel safe having the two year old with them? Or do you think that wuld be dangerous at all?

Well - the thing is, our 2 year old is delayed. She's FINALLY catching up and getting to where she should be, but she will be 2 in a couple weeks and she does not really walk yet. If it were my son, on the other hand, I wouldn't have an issue - he was walking at 8 months, he was very mobile and able to communicate at that point.



Maybe put a baby monitor in there and try it out?

For sure. He is only an infant now but I am hoping to have them in the same room at least by 8 months. Not sure what age for bedsharing though :)

Its a twin over twin. they are not all that squished and neither of them ever fell off the top when they do use it.

The boys have a full sized bunk-bed, but they started sleeping together on the bottom bunk when they were 2 and 6. They usually end up sneaking in our room anyway. :)

oh, that's a great idea. I also love sharing bed with my sisters but I really don't know what is the perfect age or time for that.
