Survey: Failed Shared Rooms

Survey: Failed Shared Rooms

Sure, as parents we sacrifice here and there, and apparently many of us give up our own bedrooms at one point or another and wind up on an air mattress or a sofa bed in the living room. Did you?

There are two reasons this happens.

Maybe you have a one bedroom and you began sharing it with your new baby. At some point you decide you miss sleeping, so you decide to try sleeping in the living room. It sticks (at least temporarily).

Or...maybe you have two bedrooms and intended that two of your children could share one of those rooms. But...it didn't work out that way. You're on the couch and they each have their own room (at least for now).

Rookie Moms' article, "Two Kids in a Room- or Not" is what initially got us thinking about this.

If you do make it work with two little ones of different ages in one room- what are your strategies? How do you make it work?
