DS1 has just turned four. Up until he was a little over 3 he coslept. Since then he has been in his own bed in my room - climbing into the big bed for cuddles when he needs them and waking me when he has a bad dream, needs reassurance etc. He sleeps through more often than not.
I love having my boys nearby (DS2 - 4.5 months- is in there too... He cosleeps), and they're reassured by it too, but lately they're waking each other ridiculously early (often before 5am). Sometimes DS1 will go climb into bed with DH (who sleeps in the other room as he and i are wildly incompatible sleepers ) if DS2 is still asleep.
Though he sleeps through most of DS2s noises I'm beginning to feel that he'd get a better nights sleep if he was in his own room. The thing that's making me hesitate is that his room is waaaaayyyyy down the other end of the house.
I'm already missing out on putting him to bed as DS2 always seems to need a bf and nap at the exact same time, and both he and I are missing some of the special things we used to do together which are harder with a young bub. I feel like moving him into his own room would be like pushing him further away
...but I also genuinely think it would help him sleep better.
Anyone else felt like this? How did you handle it?
