From next to me to cot

Did anyone else's baby sleep better in a big cot than they did in the next to me or co-sleeping.

I'm clutching at straws here...confused

I did a sidecar cot (one side removed off a full side cot and wedging it next to my bed). Baby had much more room, but allowed for me to cuddle close when needed.

My 5 month has moved to the landing right next to our room so she’s close but not on top of us, I felt every time I rolled over she stirred, it’s loads better! I’m not tempted to pounce on her with every whimper either.

@Sweetpea1989
I think that might be one of our issues (amongst others), he's such a light sleeper that every time I move he wakes up! The cot will only be a couple of feet away but even if it stops just one of the wake ups it world be something!

My little girl moved to a cot at 6 months but in the same room as us. She slept better because of the extra space, she liked to roll and couldn't in the next to me.

We moved our little boy into his own cot in his own room at 5.5 months (room is right next to ours and had a monitor) he slept well- he is quite tall so think he enjoyed the room. Plus like you said I think we were waking each other up as we are both fidgeters!
