Yes, ANOTHER sleeping thread by me, I apologise
I'm sort of thinking of moving DS (nearly 8 mo) into his own room. He currently sleeps in a cot next to our bed. There are a couple of reasons for me wanting to move him, one of which is I've heard some babies do sleep better in their own room. And it would be nice to not have to sneak into bed like a ninja at night so I don't disturb him.
It IS nice having him next to me though, and I am in two minds about the whole thing, because I know cosleeping is great, and it is nice being able to see him from my bed, and he is only a metre away for feeds and settling, etc. So, I'm undecided.
- When did your LO move into their own room? Do you think 8 months is a good age?
- DS' sleep is generally improving, do you think it is a good idea to move him now or might it set him back?
- I think that separation anxiety is starting to set in, which I've heard is totally normal for this age, should I wait till that passes before I move him?
- How to move him? I guess move the cot in the morning and maybe I stay in his new room with him for a couple of nights? Any ideas?
All advice welcome. Thanks
