    We have the opposite, we're upstairs and DS is downstairs. When we first moved him out of the bassinet and into the cot I slept in the spare room next door to DS' room. I also have a monitor. But as he's now over 2 I actually do not mind the separation. Even though he's now no longer in a cot I still use a baby monitor in his room and if in doubt, I can check on him.

    The oricom sc700 is on special at ToysRUs for $169 from tomorrow. It's a good price for the monitor. I think I paid $230.

    We had a fault with our monitor but we got it back from the company within a week and I posted it a few days before Christmas. They have a pretty good turn around time and they were very helpful.

    We had the same problem in our previous house. The master bedroom was downstairs and 2 bedrooms upstairs. When we DS moved into his own room we all moved upstairs! There was only 2 bedrooms and the main bathroom up there so that was our area that guests/visitors did not need to go in. Our master bedroom became the guest room with ensuite! (all our family are either OS or interstate so lots of people staying regularly and for long periods of time 😏).

    Ok so that now makes me seriously consider buying one, even though my current monitor is fine....thanks.

    My DS was in a bassinet in our room for the first 6 weeks & then we moved him into his own room which is downstairs & we are upstairs. The monitor we use is so good that I can hear the clock ticking in his room! My DH found that he got a better night sleep with DS in his own room & DS doesn't seem to mind at all. For the first 2 nights I slept in the bedroom next to his room just to transition it slower for myself

    We are also upstairs whilst DS has his room downstairs. DS made the big move downstairs at 4 months as he was well and truly too big for his bassinet.

    To be honest, we all sleep better for it - we don't disturb him and vise versa...I haven't even set up the monitor as I can still hear him when he needs me...good luck with the transition and definitely just go with what you feel comfortable with :-)

    Although not upstairs/downstairs our DS sleeps in his own room at the other end of our apartment. I don't use a monitor as I have something better = mummy radar. DH always laughs as I can hear every noise and always know when he needs me. I guess what I am saying is that don't feel bad about being not as close to your LO, or having the best video monitor as your mummy radar will still work :-)

    To ease the transition I would maybe spend a few nights in the room with him.
