Just put 7mo dd down in her own room for the third night. She of course is fine and is actually sleeping better than ever but I'm going crazy! I was really looking forward to having my room back but now I miss her. We have a video monitor and I made dp leave the screen on all night even though it's brighter than the sun just so I could see her. Being a mum is a weird mix of feelings. Anyone else feel happy and sad about moments in their kids lives?

My DD just went in her own room too - - well in fact we moved out of her room ! She's 4 months though so quite early but we just kept waking her up...I was on eggshells and tense all night it felt like every time I moved a tiny bit in bed she stirred and she went from sleeping through the night to waking 3 - 5 times a night ! As an experiment I went and slept in another room a few when I was ill with a cough and cold and my DP slept in with her on his own and she slept SO much better only waking 2x in night and I slept better and was more relaxed too.

Last night was the first night she was on her own and I did worry quite a bit, really resisted going and checking on her as didn't want to disturb her.... tried to be chilled about it and trust that she's ok...I do kind of wish I had a video monitor though you lucky thing ! She slept 7.30pm - 3.30am and then 4am - 7.15am... PHEW ! So much better. She did seem a bit 'off' today though...I think she knows something is different !

I'm glad your dd did well. I'm sure we'll get used to it but it is hard. I think we're all sleeping better anyway.
