Not a pressing question, but how do other Mums and couples share their beds? 50/50 or does the larger partner get / take more space? How do other couples share their beds?

  • We try to do 50/50, some nudging may be done in the night ;)

  • When my husband goes on work conferences I have the bed to myself…. Aaaaarrrhhhhh the freedom lol hahaha

  • the idea is that it’s 50/50, but I use a body pillow so I tend to get a little more space :-)

  • 50/50 for us but sometimes we share the bed with our 3 kids in which case 20/20/20/20/20

  • It’s meant to be 50/50 but we end up both right on the edges on opposite sides.

  • me the little one who kicks when sleeping does (ive noticed ive never kicked the kids….)

  • We seem to share 50/50 in a queen bed. Slept in a king size bed on holiday though and we both loved it. Didn’t seem to disturb each other as much.

  • 20% me, 40% child and 40% husband. I half sleep in the side-car cot though! I think it’s pretty normal to not have an equal share of the bed.

  • Lol I’m slightly fatter but I get in trouble if I cross the middle line other than to cuddle him! Hahaha and I like my space too so if she crowds me he gets a decent nudge. ^_^

  • We share the bed 50/50 unless one of us is really sick and the well one often sleeps in the spare room

  • we share the bed 50/50 most of the time. Occasionally it is 70/30 with me hogging the bed.

  • We upgraded to a king bed when our second and last baby came along so we have plenty of room to share! We do usually use separate blankets though, and by morning we’re usually right on our edges with a couple of kids in between :)

  • 50/50 all the way! Except apparently I steal the blanket!

  • 60/40 as hubby loves to snuggle me, so he ends up more on my side of the bed.

  • We usually snuggle up to the middle of the bed & only use a small percentage of it!! Love cuddling with my man at night!!
