Should we move DS to his own room?

DS has (since getting silent reflux sorted at 6 weeks) slept like a dream. He's also been sleeping through (without a feed) since about 10 weeks. I'm incredibly aware of how lucky we've been with him!

Since around 3.5 months (which co-incided with lighter mornings) he has been stirring and then wide awake and ready for the morning at 5am. However, he doesn't cry for milk, and when brought into bed with us will settle back to sleep until 7am or sometimes later.

The last few nights he's woken at around 2am and sang us a lovely song, and tried to initiate a nice chat, but after a shhhhh and a stroke and half an hour with his Ewan sheep, he goes back to sleep until it gets light and the above happens.

So it's nothing too bad really. I'm hoping to move him to his own room at around 6mo (he is 21 weeks now) as I feel he's really a good sleeper and without noise from us he may do even better. But if this mid-night waking carries on, I'm wondering if it's a good idea.

So I guess what I'm asking is, did you wait until your DC were sleeping through consistently before moving them?

With my first I moved him at 5 months when he normally but not always slept through. With dc2 we will wait as she will be sharing with dc1 and we don't want to wake him going into her.

If I had waited until mine were consistently sleeping through then my eldest would have been with us until 3 years old and second would still be in with us at 14 months!

I moved my Ds in the hope he would sleep better but never did. He ended up then co sleeping with me again 4 months later due to been in temp accomadation
