Post subject: Does anyone have a boy and girl share a bedroom?
Just wondered if anyone had two kids share the same room? My daughter is 4 and starting school in September and I'm due a boy at the end of September. Obviously at first he will be in with us but I'm a bit worried about them both sharing, from how it would work if he wakes up down to decorating the room lol
Anyone got any advice? x

Room dividers are good for children who share and them decorate either side for each child. I've found that children sharing don't tend to be woken by the other but I guess that depends on whether your daughter is a good sleeper.
I guess it may become a problem when your daughter gets to 8 or 9.

We live in a two bed flat so my 3 and 1yr old share and will until we move. Realistically we'll be living here for at least 3yrs+. They have bunk beds and in time toy boxes will be split with their toys. They have a big wardrobe they share. All works without hassle here xx

My two share a room too, 4yo and 8mth. Cream walls and the have decals on their walls. My sonnhas angry birds amd my daughter has owls, they have a personalised bunting each and then pics in coordinating frames.
They generally go to bed same time, and are usually straight to sleep..although my daughter has been going earlier but theres no fuss.
I did worry at first about Tilly waking oliver, but he just sleeps through any cries (tilly still wakes for a feed during the night) but he never flinches lol
