    We live in a relatively big, 2 bedroom ground floor flat. Our girl is 18 months and we have a baby on the way. How did other folks handle the sleeping arrangements at first. Jessica sleeps reallywell, 12 hours a night in her cot and always has done. I never had her in with us. How will I work it with another?
    How have others handled it and where will I put everything???
    Im going into sweats thinking about where the hell to park a double pram. I stopped a woman in the street the other day to ask her where she got hers.
    Im having a lack of space moment. Again.

    Hi Marylou,
    Thanks for replying. Its good to hear from someone else with the same space problems. I would love to move but the house is like a bombsite, (the kitchen has no wallpaper) and we would need to put in a new kitchen before we could sell this one not to mention redecorate the living room and 1 of the bedrooms. That would cost a bit so its a catch 22.

    What about a bunk bed for your room, Ive seen these ones where the top is a single and the bottom is a double for the 2 weans.

    Take care
    Laura.

    Hi Marylou,
    Thanks for the reply. I had thought about the pram and babybjorn but my last baby was 9lb 3oz and grew quickly.
    What kind of carrier do you use? I liked my bb but walking was all it was good for. Im quite small so somethings were tricky.
    I stay in a small town so my buggy is about all I can get into a shop with. Im sure you know the look non pram people give if you block an aisle or bang into them.

    Laura.

    Hiya

    What about having the baby in with you till she sleeps well, then having both kids share a room?
    My friend has 3 kids but 2 of them chose to share a room even though they didn't have to!
