Dd was in my room until she was over 2. It suited us at the time, she was bf for 18 months and still woke for a night feed and just ended up with us until she was 2.
I'm due with dc2 in a few weeks and as Dh now works shifts it will probably be easier if dc goes in his/her room sooner rather than later but I would personally not put baby his/her own room until at least 6 months.

my DD is 8months and still in with us but the slightest noise wakes her then she wont settle back in her cot, ends up in our bed, wriggles like a worm, pulls my hair and sucks her thumb together to go back to sleep -result - we dont sleep. I know she should go into her own room but we just havent done it and always think of excuses why she stay....we are rubbish......

At 5 months. We had some smoke damage (from a blocked chimney) in our bedroom and had to move him. Best thing we ever did! I realized that every time DS had moved/snuffled we woke up; and every time we moved/snuffled he woke up. Moved to own room - all of us slept right through. Magic. Good luck!

At 6 weeks! I literally couldn't get any sleep at all with DS in the room, and would lie awake for a couple of hours whilst he slept fitfully and noisily, slowly going absolutely insane.

It's not for everyone, but ultimately you have to make a decision that's right for your family. I put him into his own room in full knowledge that some research suggests there is an increased risk of SIDS if the baby is not in the room with you up till 6 months. But after 5 weeks of not getting more than an hour's sleep in a block at any point, I genuinely feared for my mental health. DS was FF anyway which made the decision easier, as I was feeding him in a chair anyway, and having to go to the kitchen, so a bit different from if you're BF I suppose...

do what's right for you and you baby x

Also 6 weeks because the snuffling made me nervous! x

6 weeks, as soon as he dropped the night feed. Babies snore I needed my sanity! x

8 months - but that was only when we moved from a 1 bed flat. I think otherwise I'd have done it at 6 months.

About 6 weeks. Dd had horrendous reflux and was a sod to try n sleep so wasn't fair on the one who wasn't up to have their one hr of sleep interrupted with the patting/screaming/vomiting

DS was 9 months when he went into his own room.
