My 4 month old is a very good sleeper and goes right through the night till 7am from his last bottle at 10pm. However since having him ive become a very light sleeper and as we all know babies are very noisy in their sleep, snuffling and jigging around. So even though my baby sleeps right through, i'm still awake listening to his every move, so my boyfriend and i are coinsidering putting him into his own room, but is he too young, should he be next to me in his cot just incase, but then at what age do i draw the line???!
beckstar i was really nervous about it too! in fact i started a thread on here! lol
but it has been fine. ds sleeps brilliantly.. and so do i!
i would suggest perhaps using his cot in his own room for his daytime naps for a while though to get him used to sleeping in there,.
i did this with ds and it made the transition a little bit easier
My ds has bee in his own room from 4 weeks old, but we do live in a small house. We left bedroom doors open so could easily hear him. Like you say, having a baby does make you a light sleeper, moving him might help.Good luck.
Mine was 4 mths, I put the moses basket in the cot for one week (he was fast outgrowing it) and then DS in the cot - the look of relief when he realised how much space he had!
My cousin moved her DD at 4 weeks as she couldn't cope with the noise!!! (we're a family of needy sleepers) and that worked fine too!
I think there is a theory (myth?) that babies synchronise their breathing with their parents and that this prevents breath holding or stopping, now I know whales do this, but I'm not sure there's any proof that human babies do.
