I have boy/girl two year old twins, and they currently are in toddler beds in the same room. For a while now, whenever we try to put them to bed, they have a great time playing together - which would be fantastic except they need to be sleeping! I know sometimes at this age kids tend to take a while to fall asleep, but my two now can take over an hour and a half, even with us going in to tell them to sleep. We don't sit with them until they sleep, as that backfired for us last time when they got used to us being in there - so used to it that they wanted it when they woke up in the middle of the night! Anyway, we are considering putting them in seperate rooms, and I'm really having problems figuring out if now is really the time. I'm looking to all you of you for help! :) When did you seperate yours, why, and looking back was it the right thing? Did they have issues with it, or was it a pretty easy transition? I LOVE how close they are and don't want to discourage it....but they need more sleep (we have CRANKY tired kids lately with this, so it's not that they don't need it), and perhaps their own space might be nice for them? I don't know....help??!!
