What are your thoughts on sibling's sharing a room?

I have a daughter who just turned 2 and a three month old daughter. My two year old climbed out of her bed for the first time a couple of nights ago, so I am debating on what kind of bed to get. I always pictured them sharing a room, so I thought about just getting a bunk bed now instead of a toddler bed. However, my husband has mixed feelings about them sharing a room. What are your thoughts, and is your child in a crib or big kid bed?

firstly, sharing a room in my opinion is great. they will fight and they as they get older will want their own rooms but i shared with my sister until i was 13 or so and it helped us stay connected, even if we didn't want to. lol.



my daughter is two and she has been in a toddler bed since she was 18 months or so because she hated her crib, and she seems to like it a lot but when we move we are going to get a twin sized bed for her. as for bunk beds i would wait until later just because the littlest one wont even be in a bed for a long time and your 2 year old may be intimidated by it. if she has a favorite show or something getting a bed or bedding with that may help...my daughter has dora everywhere and she truly loves to lay down in her big girl bed. we're expecting a boy and are unsure about them sharing a room for awhile but we're going to play it by ear.

Thanks. I think I will probably wait for bunk beds but get her a twin bed. Good suggestion about getting the bedding. I do think that will help her adjust...and she is a huge Dora fan as well. I like the idea of them sharing a room because I think it will help them be closer, but my husband is unsure about it because he thinks they will wake each other up.

I think sharing rooms is great. I have 4 kids and they share 2 and 2 right now. I put them into toddler beds sometime between 18 months to 1 year each depending on the child.
