Just wanted to check what others have done re putting baby in own room.

Ds2 is now 8 weeks and am experimenting tonight with him in his own room. I know recommendation is 6months hence me asking you all what you did.

When I had ds1 we lived in 1 bed house til he was 18months and he was terrible sleeper and even worse when he got own room in new house as was used to us so didn't want same thing happening with ds2 but is this too early??

Plus am doing it to get dh back in bed as he currently sleeps on sofa to avoid the noisy night time feeds so thought if I do them in ds2 room he won't be so disturbed.

Guess I'm looking for reassurance that its ok!

Does anyone know, is the reduced SIDS risk related to adults waking if they stop breathing or baby continuing to breath because they can hear others in the room breathing?

I ask because
1. I am a really deep sleeper & not sure DD not breathing would wake me
2. when she moves from our room she will be sharing with DD1 - so not on her own as such

Mine were in their own room from day 1.
