I would add, that in case you're expecting #3 after your bunch, and you know your "bigs" will be sharing a room... move them in together BEFORE the youngest is out of the crib. That way, one is still contained which can dramatically reduce bed-time shenanigans. Don't try to transition to "big kid bed" AND a shared room at the same time.

We are expecting #3 in two weeks, and my bunch (almost 3, almost 4) have been sharing a room for at least 6 months. It's been a hair-pulling, frustrating endeavor, but I think we've FINALLY hit our groove. They are able to go down at the same time at night now, but the biggest naps on our bed instead of sharing rooms at naptime.

There have been MANY times I spent naptime, frustrating, perusing the internet for a larger home nearby just to avoid the battles!

We have three kids oldest is 3, and we have one on the way due in December. We live in a three bedroom house, that is really plenty big enough for our growing bunch. When my second daughter was born we put her into the room with her sister. They are 13 months apart. It was a little challenging at first, but not really. Did little sis wake up big sis? Yes, but we have a family, and sometimes people wake up other people, I looked at it as a learning experience to teach Big sis how to go back to sleep and even how to help little sis go back to sleep. I heard on a radio broadcast once from a mother of 7 I think, she said we live with people, and our kids need to learn to function with other people. (Rough paraphrase) When I got married, I had been living alone for a LONG time, and in the 4.5 years since our marriage, our ever expanding family has forced me to accomodate the needs of those around me. Do I always give into the wants of my kids, NO, but I must learn to evaluate my desires and see are they selfish or valid. Or maybe a little bit of both. I am striving to teach my kids the same lesson only sooner than I have learned it. We live in a world where we need to learn to be with people. I think teaching kids to learn to adapt their sleeping, even at a young age, 13 months and younger, is perfectly acceptable. Is it challenging yes at times, but we are parents it is our job to teach our kids, and to grow ourselves in the process.

My biggest piece of advice on room sharing is to be patient. They really WILL adapt to the situation; it just takes some time to figure out what will work best for your bunch. Our daughters are 21 months apart, and they have been sharing a room since they were 7 months and 28 months. It took several weeks for everyone to adapt, but they did learn to sleep through each other's noises. It has worked out great for our family; the girls now genuinely enjoy sharing a room together, and they easily adapt to various sleeping arrangements when we are traveling, which is a huge plus. A tip if you are trying to have your infant share a room with your toddler: put the baby in a pack-n-play in another room until he/she is consistently sleeping the same basic night-time hours as the toddler. If you try to put the baby in the same room while he/she is waking up multiple times for feedings, that can be really tricky. But once the baby is on the same sleep schedule, it is fairly easy to make the transition.

This is perfect that people can get the mortgage loans and that opens new possibilities.

let's join our hands together to stop this kind of wrong doings. It may risk lives in the future if we just let them continue.

The Air Jordan III's had poor sales when first retro'ed in 1994. On the other hand if they happen to be re-retro'ed they marketed out http://www.jordansretro11s.com instantaneously. A pair on the Air Jordan III design might be marketed for over 300 bucks on a variety of internet websites, one in particular remaining eBay.
