So, as we will have another small person we are worried about space. I have told Darren that we should wait until I return to work until we think about moving. We live in a 2 bed flat. Rose has a very small room. Too small too share. We have a big bedroom. So, I thought if we did want to maximise space what could we do? Baby would be in with us for 6 months. I measured Roses room and a double would just fit in and I mean just but the door opens inwards. I did think do we just sleep in there telly on the wall and the kids have the big room and our wardrobe in there. Not sure how easy it is to turn a door or have folding ones fitted and would I really not care that we are in a tiny tiny room?
Or we look at having a partition wall up in our room. There is only one window though so would mean one of the rooms wouldn't have a window. Although not sure it would bother me. I have no idea on cost either. Anyone got any sensible suggestions?!

I'd just keep the baby in with you. My husbands sister slept on a small bed in her parents room until she was about 11 as there wasn't any room anywhere else.

I suppose that would be a lot less hassle. I suppose I just feel sad this one won't have a nursery like Rose did. Maybe it will give us the kick up the bum to get a move on with moving if we do that

I don't think you can have a bedroom that doesn't have a window, unless your flat is on the ground floor - I think that all rooms on the first floor or above must have a window so that you can escape from them if there was a fire. You'd need to check building regs as I may be making this up
I'd keep the baby in with you for now. I would consider two children sharing the bigger room and having a smaller one myself though, if you find you don't have the money to move when its nearer the time.

Cedar is right - you cannot have a bedroom without a window.
I would just keep baby in with your whilst you are living there
