Should I be allowing my 7 week old baby to have daytime naps in a room on her own?

Should I be doing this?

I don't see why not. I take it your close by and can check on her?

As long as you have a baby monitor and check on her regularly, I don't see that this is a problem.

I did it with my second because he couldn't sleep with the noise from my first.

Yes, as long as you either have a monitor and/or check on her regularly.

I never would have got a thing done otherwise!! I used to race into the shower and bring the monitor with me so if DD woke I'd hear and be able to get to her again in seconds..

SIDS advice is that all sleep (including naps) should be taken in the same room as you until 6m+.

The current SIDS advice says you should not. But your baby your choice.
