How old was baby when moved across to their own room?

Hi everyone! Me and my OH are looking to rent somewhere for a year and we're not sure whether to get a 2 or 1 bedroom place! How long did your baby stay in your room until you moved them across?

5 month. If it's for a year get a 1 bedroom.

You might not want the baby in its own room.

Oh you'll get a million different answers to this question. And until your baby is here it's really difficult to know how you'll feel. But if it would really make life easier for you to rent a 1 bed it's no big deal to have to keep your baby with you for that long. My first was nearly 2 when she went in to her own room.

7 months. Wouldn't have been an issue to keep him in with us for a year but he outgrew his cosleeper cot so rather than do a big furniture reshuffle we moved him then.

About 7 weeks! Babies are so noisy!

8 months. She didn't have a nursery until then as we moved when she was five months and then needed to decorate but it was about right for us.

Both mine went in to there own rooms at 6 months

Six months cause we'd hired a side car cot for that long and the proper cot didn't fit in our room.

2 years grin

7 months for both. Just helped them sleep better. If you're pregnant now and looking to rent now, then get the 1 bed. We could definitely have kept them in with us if needdd.

Just make sure it's a pretty big bedroom!

DS - 9 weeks (no one was sleeping as he was noisy etc..)

Dd1 - 12 weeks but I slept in her room in a bed next to her Moses basket until then. DH in our room.

Dd2 - 12 weeks but I slept in her room in a bed next to her Moses basket until then. DH in our room.

Dd3 - I'm planning to do the same as my other 2 daughters...

About 7 months.

8 months. Planned to move him out at 6m following NHS guidelines but he wasn't sleeping through the night, it was easier to keep him with me. DH had been sleeping in the spare/baby's room for 90% of that time. He'd have really struggled to be in with us.

NHS guidelines are that babies should sleep in your room until they are AT LEAST 6 months. My DD is 11 months and has claimed her space in my bed. I can't see her move out until she goes to uni.

BentleyBelly Mon 17-Apr-17 18:56:07

4 months. She outgrew the moses basket and we couldn't fit her cot bed in our room.

DorotheaHomeAlone Mon 17-Apr-17 18:57:53

6 months for both.

Andcake Mon 17-Apr-17 19:00:11

I've heard guidelines may be changed to a year in parents room to avoid SIDS.
I do wonder at parents who risk under 6 months...
Ds ended up in our room unto 16 months due to everyone getting more sleep that way!

Andcake Mon 17-Apr-17 19:02:08

Another thought though was our 2nd room became invaluable for eith dp or I to get a good nights sleep away from a waking baby!
At 6 months ds was waking on the hour every hour it was torture...

PurpleTraitor Mon 17-Apr-17 19:03:12

17 months
13 months, then moved back at 15 months, back again at 21 months.

Tubbyinthehottub Mon 17-Apr-17 19:06:21

2 weeks, couldn't sleep a wink with him in the room. And yes, I do know what the guidelines are.

LapinR0se Mon 17-Apr-17 19:07:49

12 weeks due to piglet snorting noises

minifingerz Mon 17-Apr-17 19:10:46

Last baby - 2 years. I love sleeping with my dc's. Wish we'd just filled one bedroom with mattresses and all 5 of us slept together, leaving the other 3 bedrooms for useful things - study, wardrobe room, playroom..,

BelafonteRavenclaw Mon 17-Apr-17 19:12:36

Around 7/8 months.

MyHairIsMyHair Mon 17-Apr-17 19:13:42

4 months (outgrew the crib)

Jem01 Mon 17-Apr-17 19:19:16

12 weeks
