I came up with kind of a weird question a few minutes ago. What did Tudor children sleep in? Specifically early-ish Tudor (as in, not Elizabethan)...I got to thinking about this when doing a little research on the last 10 years of Henry VII's reign. I'm pretty sure that cribs weren't around then, but what about cradles or bassinettes? And when did a child begin sleeping in an actual bed?
Also, I'm aware that royal and noble children slept in nurseries. Were boys and girls separated or just all lumped in together?
Thanks for any info...I Googled but couldn't find anything that answered my specific questions.
