This is just a pondering but given the choice and assuming you have a decent sized bedroom, would you let your children share a room (whatever their age and gender) or would put them in their own room. I know of a couple of people whose siblings share a room despite having a separate bedroom to put them in And so I wondered if there was a reason for this eg.bonding, learning to share or just because.
We should be moving soon and want somewhere with a third bedroom so A and N can each have their own space but then I got thinking would it be so bad for them to share (if the room is big enough) and have the spare room as a play room or something else? I imagine it would only work for a couple of years anyway because they are 4 years apart and a brother and sister would need their own space and privacy at some point but while they're young it might be ok. We will probably put them in their own rooms anyway as A is a poor sleeper but again just a pondering.

We have a three bed house but when this baby is old enough she will go in with W.
it helps that they're both girls but even if it was a boy we would still have them sharing for the first few years.
The third bedroom is then kept as a guest room for when family visit.
I think its nice to get them used to sharing. At least everything is all in one place then too.
Obviously we haven't put this into practice yet so it might not work- ie one may wake the other up a lot etc, but we'll give it a try .
