There are now 5(!) of us in our King-size bed - my husband and I and our 3 boys, ages 3, 2 and 5 months. We have a crib (converted to toddler bed) pushed up against the bed, but neither of the older boys will sleep in it anymore because they feel too lonely. Sometimes I have to move one over there after he falls asleep. We love the concept of having everyone close but nobody is getting good sleep now. I roll back and forth with the baby to nurse and there's just not enough space. Sometimes my husband takes the 2-year-old upstairs and that's the only alternative arrangement the kids will tolerate. It just doesn't feel right to be all separated,especially since it may be for an indefinite amount of time. My 3 y/o would like the concept of a cool new bed but come bedtime he wouldn't stand it. We have no more space to put another bed beside us (unless maybe we take out the crib and buy a twin or something). I just don't know how to resolve the situation so that everyone is happy and sleeping well. Any ideas? (P.s.our room is downstairs and the other rooms are upstairs so its quite a trek for a scared boy if we DID get him in his own bed.)
