Getting crowded?

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 12:13 PM
This is a comment I posted in response to saving space/not doing a nursery for a new baby on moneysavingmom.com - a website I recommend to all moms.

We have plenty of space, but have always chosen to have our newborns in a bassinet right beside our bed to make night nursing work better. Each of my three moved to their rooms between three and five months, depending on how long my husband could tolerate the night wakings and they could still comfortably fit in the bassinet. We never decorated a nursery - we had two spare rooms, one somewhat girly and one somewhat masculine. Our first girl when into the girly room, our first boy went into the masculine room, and our second girl joined her sister when she left our room. Now expecting our fourth child and third girl, we're looking at this one joining the girls after her stay in the bassinet. We are looking into adding on another bedroom so that the three girls dont' have to share a room forever (the "stuff" of girls is more crowding than the girls themselves.) But because we are looking at doing most of the work ourselves, it will most likely take up to two years. In the meantime, my husband's making a loft bed for the oldest to help her cope with the younger two in her room. We expect some transitional issues, and most people think we're crazy for even planning on keeping the younger two together after the addition, but know that it'll all work out. It's good to know how room-sharing works for other families
