Sids guidance is in with you til 6 months, DH likes guidance so wants us to move him to own room around 6 months - I don't want to, purely for the reason that I'm smitten with him and will miss him and his silly baby sleep noises confused

When did you move yours and did it work for you?

She moved into her own room.on her third birthday, we had decorated it all lovely for her and she's never had any trouble going to sleep in there.

Ds moved seamlessly at 8 months when we stopped cosleeping and into his cot

Btw, the side guidance is the minimum the sids advice says you should move them, so keep him with you aslong as you are both happy.

DS: 9 months
DD: 21 months.
In retrospect, DS could have stayed with us a bit longer. DD was very much ready for her own space. Even if we'd have continued co-sleeping, she would have benefitted from her own space to play in. She absolutely loved it and spent ages lining up her teddies just so and proudly showing people the different things she had in there.

Mine moved into their own rooms when they were about a week old!! That was the done thing at the time. I was encouraged by the midwife and health visitor to put the baby in his/her own room so that I wouldn't be disturbed by every little sound and could get some sleep.

3.8yo grin we co-slept until then.

It was August and we were all sweaty and he insisted on sleeping alone, so off he popped without a peep.

I appreciate that isn't ideal for everyone.

We tried to put her in her own room at 7 months as she'd grown out of her Snuzpod. I cried as I loved having her in with us. As it happened her sleep went to shit, so she came back in with us and we co-slept for a month. So 8 months before she was properly in her own room.

5.5 months for both as they outgrew/ tried to climb out of their Moses basket and we couldn't fit a cot in our room. I was devastated, but didn't want them in our bed, and both of them (and DH and I) slept soooo much better for it!

2.5 years old and absolutely loved it!

We did it at 5 months as I was going back to work after 6 months, and I didn't want to be woken up by every little sniffle (Im a light sleeper). I wanted DS to get used to being in his own room by the time I was back.

Tell him 6 months is just the minimum recommendation; it doesn't mean you HAVE to do it at 6 months!

Not until he was 16 months. That was only because he kept waking up every night when we went to bed, and staying awake for like 4 hours some nights. He slept fine in there, didn't bother him at all.
If it wasn't for the waking up he would still be in with us as I don't really like him being on his own.

Bang on 6 months as I knew if I didn't do it then I might never want to. Not that I think there's anything wrong with keeping a toddler in with you, but it's just not what we wanted.

I'll let you know grin

Dd (4) and ds (9 months) are still in with us. We got a giant floor bed grin

Dd is autistic and this is the only way we get sleep (seriously)

It is lovely though. Dh is softer than me so I imagine they will be with us until they are ready to suggest they go themselves into a room.

DS1 was 5y.
DS2 9 months still going strong, we co sleep.
DH is working away, I'm sandwiched between them at 8.5 y old and our 9m old.
