Getting 12 month old from cosleeping into his own room

My 12 month old cosleeps and is breastfed at night to sleep. It's been a great way for DH, myself and DS to get a good nights sleep. But now DS is so much bigger and taking over the whole bed we want to make the move into his own room. Ideally we would have had the cot in our room to make the move less traumatic but his cotbed won't fit into our room.

So I was wondering whats the best way to make the move? Should I start with a routine of dinner, bath, story, breastfeed bed and just stick to it until he is comfortable with it? I know I don't want to do controlled crying so I will need to comfort him if he cries.

I've resolved myself to a tough few weeks but I'm just not sure of how I should be handling it when/if he is crying?

Any advice, ideas, past experience would really be appreciated!
