This is a good suggestion! We did this for my boys during a similar transition period and it worked great. This question also reminded me of how my parents bought my sister and I separate twin beds WAY back when and we got lonely and they just…pushed the beds together and we were happy again. Whenever we wanted a little space, we pushed them apart.

What about something like this? https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/therapedic-reg-quick-king-bed-bridge/1061879430. Takes two twins an d makes a larger mattress. That way, when they want to separate, you just pull them apart! Not too bad an option for $17

Thank you! Helpful suggestions for sure, and also nice to hear that other siblings do/did the bed-sharing thing. I don’t know any other families whose kids are into it, so I appreciate the reassurance that it’s not something way outside the realm of normal.
