Beds for toddlers

Would it be okay for my 1 & 2 year old to sleep on a double or queen bed? My 1 year old currently has a cot and my 2 year old has a toddler bed but I find that they wake up during the night because it’s cramped on their little beds as they like to move around and spread out during their sleep (unfortunately they get that from both my partner and I lol) if I were to do this I would definitely be getting rails for the sides for sure.

I wouldn’t sleep my kids together purely as they’d move around and end up thrashing into each other or head butting but that’s how they sleep.

Both my girls went straight into double beds from a cot. Just pop a rail on and it's fine :)
