OK, we have DCs 5, 3 and 9m. We have a double airbed (DP and I both hate it and are up for a change), a single airbed, an ordinary travel cot and a single SIM. And a tent with 2 bedrooms.

The 5 and 3yos will happily go in together but would wake up the baby if she was in with them. Baby's a light sleeper so not mad keen on having her in with us. Have borrowed a Little Life baby tent thing in the past but no lomnger able to do so.

We're up for new kit but not got many £££s. Double SIM for us and double airbed for littlies and baby in main tent part in travel cot? Never tried a SIM - are they really that comfy? Gah, brain hurts - what would you do?

i just bought a SIM and tested it out at home - just as comfy (or not) as double airbed.

personally wouldn't bother with airbed for kids - ours had old fashioned roll mats until this year. SIMs now. cheap in sainsburys and aldi.

Cheap SIMs for kids, best SIMs you can afford for you and DH, baby in the travel cot. i always pinned a blanket over the cot for warmth and darkness but mine never stood up when in the grobag stage.

Pins! WHy didn't I think of something as simple as pinning a blanket over it. Thank you, BH.

And Sainsburys are selling SIMs? Or have I read that wrong and it's roll mats? Off there in the morning anyway.
