Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Have you tried it and have encountered problems? If so, what problems have you had?My almsot 3 year old daughter and my 17 month old son share a room right now and they love it. Of course, they've shared off and on since my son was born so it was never a strange thing. At bedtime it's dark so it's easy for them to go to sleep. They may talk and play a little bit, which is fine, but they rarely have problems once they settle down. Naps are a different story, they will stay up and play for hours instead of sleeping so I have to put my son down first (he's easier and faster) and then once he's asleep I have my daughter get into her bed. She knows she has to be quiet when he's sleeping and she (almost) never wakes him up.
