What is your sleep set up?

I sleep in a king bed with hubby very much to our own side of the bed.
For about 2.5 years our eldest slept with us in a double bed with an extended side cot mattress, then for another 2.5 years I slept with both the kids “their bedroom” in a double with them.

Curious to hear what others do, I know some friends who haven’t slept in the same room as hubby for years for different reasons
I know of one friend how uses two double beds and they each have their own bed.

I sleep in a queen bed by myself because my husband left 3 years ago to sleep in another bed 50kms away with a woman that has way bigger tits then I do!

 Sucks to be him, what a dick!! His loss.

Both my kids have had their own bed in their own room since birth with no baby monitor. Best thing I did was have a consistent night time routine and let my kids learn how to put themselves to sleep. Never had a drama with either of them when it came to bedtime.

 This was me exactly when i had just two kids, now i have three, things have changed.

OP Me neither. I never minded laying down with them to sleep. Just a different no drama :)
Now they are 4 and 7 and happily sleep over with their 4 grandparents. Go to sleep without me and sleep alone 98% of the time.
Truth be told those rare occasions they show up at 3 am I love it.
Even though with hubby I’m a back toward him, edge of the bed sleeper and always have been lol

King bed. No issues with either children sleeping in there with us

We used to sleep in a double all cosy and in love. Now our queen is too small. Hate drunk, cigarette breath being breathed on me all night and his rank farts that he actually separates his arse cheeks to let rip.
So repulsive

Hubby and I share a king bed. 1-4 of our kids come in each night. Some nights I bunk in with 2 of the kids in a double bed, other nights I end up in the king with all 4 and hubby takes the double bed. If 1-2 kids come in with hubby and I, it's all good. But once the third or forth comes in, I usually end up going out lol

I sleep where he tells me. It depends on how ive behaved.

 As if. You're trying to stir shit where there is none

 Hubby and I also sleep head to toe. Oddly I have more room. I love it. It's not uncomfortable at all and I sleep better. It works for us both

 We do it too. He's a snorer so this works well

OP Ha didn’t even think of this set up.
When both my kids occasionally sleep in I switch head to toe to make it work!!
