    I have this current dilemma too! My youngest is nearing 2 years old and sleeps very well through the night now finally and is about to outgrow the pack and play in our room. The 4 year old has a loft bed and usually zonks out pretty quickly at night (naptime is a WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY) and sleeps until it’s time to get ready for school.

    The four year old starts bedtime at 8 and is supposed to be in bed, lights out at 8:30. He’s usually asleep by 9. The toddler then is put to bed as soon as we’ve tucked in his brother. My guess is that they’d keep each other awake for awhile, but they do like spending time with each other (at least when they’re not trying to kill each other). The bedroom that the oldest sleeps/plays in is small, which is why he has a lofted bed. The plan is to put a crib mattress on the floor under the lofted bed. I want to move the dressers into the guest room/office (which is right on the other side of the kitchen and is VERY VERY VERY VERY noisy and not at all conducive to sleep) so that they have as much space in the current bedroom as possible to sleep and play.

    I don’t know what to do either.

    I am so glad I am not the only one playing around with furniture and room-sharing options in my head all day! I will say, I DO love the brother-bonding of them being in the same room. My current decision is to keep them together since they are still young, and then we will reevaluate when they get older!
