    Default Tips to stop co-sleeping?

    My 8 m/o sleeps in bed with me for a number of reasons but if I'm 100% honest mostly I'm just lazy when it comes to overnight feeding! It's lovely having her in my bed but I actually think I am feeding her too often as when she wakes throughout the night it's automatic that I feed her as I'm half asleep and assume thats what she wants.

    I want to try and get her into her cot so I can:
    - Have my bed back
    - Stop feeding her unnecessarily

    Any tips on how to do this?

    I moved DS out of my bed at 14 months and night weaned him at the same time. He would start the night in his cot and by 11pm would be in our bed and wake every 2-3 hours after that for a feed.
    I started rocking him to sleep at 11pm instead of feeding or taking him back to bed. DH went in sometimes too. We just delayed the time he came to our bed until he stayed in his cot the whole night. It ended up only taking 3 nights!

    No advice, just subbing.

    Dd is 17 months and has coslept since around 6 months. I like it, dh works away and she keeps me warm. My plan is though that next year I can bribe her with a cool toddler bed. She has major cot aversion and as soon as she goes near it she freaks!

    Maybe have a bed next to ur's to start with, so she is still close but not in ur bed. Then keep moving it away till she in her own room

    I don't have advise either but I'm in the same situation and really want to get DS into his cot. However I am pregnant now and now finding it harder and harder to get in the middle of the night and I know DH won't do it, he sleeps through it now with him right next to us. So I'm in two minds about it and I know I'll eventually need to. Good luck.

    I done the whole one cot side off and pushed up against my bed to start with so they were in their own bed but still co sleeping , then after a week I put the side back on. Once they are used to sleeping in their own cot I put them in their room but this can be frustrating with night feeds as it is so much easier having them with you.
    I don't have much helpful advice haha
