"HI,MY BOYFRIEND AND I ARE EXPECTING A BABY BOY IN FEBURARY.I HAVE A 6 YEAR OLD SON AND HE HAS A 5 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. RIGHT NOW WE ARE LIVING IN SEPERATE HOUSES. WE ARE PLANNING TO MOVE IN TOGETHER BUT CAN ONLY AFFORD A 3 BDROOM APARTMENT. HE FEELS AS THOUGH HIS DAUGHTER SHOULD HAVE HER OWN ROOM AND I FEEL MY SON SHOULD HAVE HIS OWN ROOM.THE BABY WILL STAY IN OUR ROOM AT FIRST BUT SOON WILL HAVE TO SHARE A ROOM WITH ONE OF THEM. MY BOYFRIENDS DAUGHTER LIVES WITH HER MOM BUT VISITS MY BOYFRIEND EVERYOTHER WEEKEND AND EVERY WEDNESDAY. MY SON LIVES WITH ME AND VISITS HIS DAD ON THE WEEKENDS.IT TURNS OUT THAT HE HAS HIS DAUGHTER 8 DAYS OUT OF THE MONTH AND I HAVE MY SON 16 DAYS. HE FEELS THAT BECAUSE THE NEWBORN IS GOING TO BE A BOY HE SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY SHARE A ROOM WITH MY SON. I DONT FEEL THE SAME. I FEEL AS THOUGH MY SONS FULL TIME HOME IS WITH ME. HIS DAUGHTERS FULL TIME HOME IS WITH HER MOM. I LOVE HIS DAUGHTER BUT I DONT SEE DISRUPTING MY SONS LIFESTYLE(SLEEP AND SCHOOL)WHEN HIS DAUGHTER WILL ONLY BE WITH US 8 DAYS OUT OF THE MONTH. I KNOW IT WILL BE DIFFUCULT ON BOTH KIDS BUT I FEEL LIKE MY SON WILL BE MAKING THE BIGGER CHANGEBY MOVING AND ADJUSTING AND I FEEL LIKE STICKING HIM WITH A BABY AT HIS AGE WILL JUST MAKE THINGS WORSE. WHERE AS I DONT SEE HOW HIS DAUGHTER WILL BE VERY AFFECTED? SO MY QUESTION IS WHO'S ROOM DO YOU THINK THE BABY SHOULD BE IN???? "
The older children will both need their rooms. Let the baby have his things in your bedroom. Put him in the room that happens to be free every night when he falls asleep. Let him sleep in your bedroom or in the sitting room when the other two children are there at the same time. Buy a bed with wheels.
