I'll have to remember this. Our girls will eventually share a room, too!


If it helps, we have the same Ikea crib (I think, the blue one?) with the Ikea mattress and my son has been able to climb out of it for months (he turned 2 in December). We got a crib tent from BabiesRUs and it almost doesn't fit the crib but we made it work. After the first night or two, he was used to it and we can sleep knowing he's contained.

We have our boys in one room and the girls in another. The girls are 2 years apart and the boys are 5 years apart. (We have book end boys). My older son slept in with girls until the baby was about 18 months old. My older son is a heavy sleeper. I think that happens with so many kids. He pretty much sleeps through his younger brother getting up earlier than him. My older son is allowed to read with a book light for a little while at bed time. It helps us to put them all down at the same time. He's usually not quite ready to sleep yet. We also have a few books and toys in the room for the little guy and he's pretty good about playing quietly for a while when he wakes up. I would put them down in seperate rooms for naps. It will make your 4 year old feel like he's special. You can also let him know it's a privelage that big brothers get to be able to nap in your room. I would definetly put the baby in the lower crib. For one, your 18 month old is familiar with the other crib. Also, you don't want to have to worry about him climbing out and hurting himself. We moved our kids to IKEA beds without the legs before they were 2. I didn't want to buy another crib. My daughter slept in the pack in play for a while. She was only 16 months old when the 4th came along. She wanted to be in the big bed like her sister. I would just make sure that he feels like the new room is his too. I changed the bedding and curtains for my boys so that it became the boys room and not just one room that the other moved into. It might be rough for a few nights, but I find most things are better after the 3rd night. Good luck.

My little boys share a room and unfortunately they do wake eachother up in the morning. Although, there are great benefits that I haven't seen mentioned. They are great company for eachother. Just the other night the twenty-month-old cried out and my three-year-old called out "It's okay Andrew, I'm here for you!" Priceless. They adjust and honestly, they don't alway wake eachother up. Naps work fine, even staggered. I've worked to get the older one to just come downstairs when he wakes up instead of calling me. All in all, I think that the bigger the family the more the other children will adjust and cope with the living arrangements.
