Before I had kids I thought that I'd pack the baby off to the nursery as soon as I got home. That all changed when I got home and realised I wanted them close by. Now we have a super-king-sized bed and a side carriage sleeper for the baby so we can all share the bed. It's a nice feeling to be able to cuddle together as a family and reconnect after our busy days. For other families who are looking to try the idea of a family bed we have started a blog with useful furniture links.
