We do actually have a small second bedroom (6ft x 9ft), which is currently used as very useful storage.
DD is 11 months old and still in our bedroom.
Were now trying to conceive number two and Im wondering about the potential to have both a toddler and a baby in our room. There is enough room that DD can have her cot bed (if we ever get her out of our bed!) on one side of the bedroom whilst the babys cot would be next to the bed.
Ideally wed keep them both in the main bedroom with us and use the other bedroom as storage. Then when the second is old enough, wed move into the little bedroom and theyd share the bigger bedroom with built in storage being put in the (relatively large) alcove. We couldnt fit our bed and a baby in the little bedroom so need to stay in the bigger room for the time being.
Any views or experience or, in effect, having parents and two children in one bedroom?
Wildthings thanks for your story - that sounds fab
Poncey believe it or not we have slept in the little bedroom before when the floor collapsed in the bigger bedroom!. The bed was about the only thing we could fit in and could only get out one side of it but it was do-able.
Oak the move DD into the little room we'd have to move a cupboard out which won't fit in the alcove in our room - longer term we are planning to have a built in cupboard in the alcove to maximise storage but can't afford it at the moment so looking for other solutions.
The most sensible thing to do would be wait to have number 2 until money is better but both DH and I are broody now
