Stopping bedsharing

Any advice on stopping bedsharing gently?

My 16m DD has bedshared since she was about 9w. This has worked well, but I am looking to get her into her own space before July ideally, as I have recently discovered I am expecting DC2 in September.

Does anyone have any experience of this they can share with me please?

Hopeful bump!

Hmm, are you breastfeeding? Mine were happy (dd more so then ds) to move to their own beds when they were reliably no longer bf at night (around 18m)

I am still bf, yes, but hoping to night wean gradually before my bump takes over.

Yes I stopped the bf first by sleeping on the sofa while baby bedshared with dh. Was surprisingly easy with no distress. Ds then moved to a toddler bed in our room, then eventually his own. Dd was happy to go straight to her own room. Good luck!
