already have dd 10 months, am getting married in 2 years and planning to have another baby straight away, so dd would be almost 4 by time number 2 comes along (assuming i get pg straight away of course!)the plan was for us to move within the next 2 years before getting married etc as our house is very small, and i didnt think it was pracitical for a 4 year old to share with a baby.
but now i really dont think we are in a position to move within next tweo years as money is very tight.
obvioulsy the baby would be in with us for about 6 months til it needed it's pwn cot, but our bedroom would definitely not fit a cot in, so we would either have to move before baby was old enough for own room, or try to manage with them sharing a bedroom, is this really unrealistic/impractical?
has anyone else done it and how did it work for you?
Also have a two bedroom flat with two children. We had a couple of months where dh and I slept in the sitting room on a futon because we disturbed dd and she disturbed us(very early waker!) before she moved into ds's room. They have quite a big room and we have "L" shaped bunk beds which work well.
DD and DS shared until they were 4 and 7, ended up in a double bed in a single room with all their toys hidden when we were selling the flat. Still like to share even though they have their own rooms now I have just went up to chuck DS out of DD bed. They are very close and like each others company, maybe they are closer because they shared since small.
