We asked our Facebook fans: How many will sleep in your bed tonight? Here’s what they had to say.

When we go to bed there's two.....when we wake up, we could be anything from 3 to 5. - Cindy Jacobs

We will also go to bed 2 and end up as 3! Also have to take little one back to her bed but hard sometimes in the cold. - Bridget Gail Runnalls

?6... Me... Dad... Baby Boo... 2 x dogs... 1 x cat... the big kid thankfully will sleep in her own bed. - Natasha Rough

None hide on the couch. - Chantal Michelle Olivier

1 dad, 1 mom + 17wk bump and a 20mth old boy - tooooo cosy! - Olivia Minnaar ?

Hubby, myself and my 3 week old daughter. The other two are also possibilities in this cold. We are used to the musical beds. - Allison Wainwright

Woke up one morning with 6 in the bed. Me, hubby, 6-year-old, 2-year-old and 6-month-old twins! Soraya Sahabodien Noor
