awwwww twin cot looks cool 8)

i'd get it but what if they like their own space....you'll be lumbered with a £300 toy box :D

if it was moi i'd get the twin version but only to see how cute they look together....absolutely no bearing on the practicalities....in fact wait for someones advice who has more common sense....newshy

Lovely twin cot, we were going to get a twin cot but glad we didn't now. But if you have the space why not & it you want to run round one side & run round the other some nights then why not! at least with 2 single cots you can stand in between? we do! good price thou compaired to £600.00 we were advised!!! 8o

but being practical when they both can pull themselves up, is it a good idea being so close, jumping in each others cots all night!! just the thought scares me! :D

Ahhhhh the twin cot is V cute BUT why not buy two seperates and push them together when they're newborn so that they can hear, see and smell each other and then you can gradually split them up, give them their own space and give yourself more options as they get older.

EDIT: My two stayed in cots for a couple of years at least, think about having two toddlers in that cot :scared:

I reckon the twin cot is more of a gimmick than anything else..I mean, if you want them together, then put two singles together.

We bought "Squares" cotbeds from John Lewis, well one for the first 3 months with a cot divider (http://www.twinsthings.co.uk/sleeper.htm) and then the second cot...nothing looks cooler than two cots, side by side....Ill post a picture in a bit if I can remember!

Twin co looks lovley after all they've been sleeping in the same womb together for 9 months, it must be a shock to be separated. What about 2 drop sided cots pushed together to make one huge cot? Then you can do what Bells suggested and separate them gradually.

mr k cots look lovely! :]

Andy,

lovely pic! how many toys!!!!!!!!

Kski - I think you should buy 2 cots/cotbeds, when the are about my twins age they love chatting & looking through the bars at each other, Molly can pull herself up on bars & stares at Daisy, but Daisy is far to lazy to do the same as Molly!! mine were a bargain from babiesrus £99.00 for a cotbed.

What have decided?

great thread

we are starting to do the same, thanks Kski for prompting this great thread!!

Andy, can I ask another question? The range we are looking at is white and I wondered how it has stood up to getting marked etc? The shop assure us that it will be fine, but your experience would be great - particularly if they have survived a recent move!

We are def going for two cotbeds now!

thanks all, great piccies everyone!

Hi we had 2 seperate ones purey because my 2 were quite noisy little wrigglers and would have kept each other awake through.

In the day I had a travel cot downstairs with a bassinette level and they both used to sleep in that together cos I could see them and check they weren't smothering each other or getting so close that they breathe each others co2 in.

When they were really little thay had a moses basket each upstairs and then went into a cot each at about 8/9 weeks early I know but they slept through from that very day xxx
