    DS moved into his own room at 9 weeks. This is what worked for our family. Different things work for different families.

    Default Re: Newborn sleeping in the same room as you?!

    My bub has slept in his own room since we brought him home from hospital. Our room is next to his so I can hear him if he wakes up. We had a spare bed in his room and I slept in that for the first 2 night's and I kept waking him from my snoring. Went back to my room and we haven't looked back.
    Also I didn't want him in our room because my partner gets up at 4.30am for work and I didn't want bub waking him up during the night as he also works 13 hour days.

    Default Newborn sleeping in the same room as you?!

    My DD (Dear Daughter) sleeps about 2 meters away from our bed but in her own room She also has a bassinet in our room which she still uses occasionally. It's nice to keep her near, she is a quiet Bub, and I like to be able to get to her before she wakes fully (she kicks her covers off and gets really cold before crying, but with her near I can hear her starting to wake up). I use our monitors to listen out for her when she is napping throughout the day and I'm doing the housework

    I keep bub in our room till 12mths if not in our bed It's a tight fit with the cot in there but I wouldn't dream of it any other way. My 2yo sleeps down the corridor in our new house and I'm forever getting up to check on her.

    I sleep best when both girls are in bed with me.

    Default Re: Newborn sleeping in the same room as you?!

    Newborn babies tend to wake every 1-2 hours (maybe 3 if you are super lucky) it's a lot easier to just reach over and grab baby than get up and stumble down the hall.

    Though katelyn was a very noisy newborn always snuffling and wiggling and I was there alert and ready. So I ended up sleeping with one ear plug to just muffle noise!

    Though when I was pregnant with jasper (first baby) I thought he'd go straight into his cot in his own room straight from hospital but the first night home he was in the bassinet on parents side (because I'd had a csection the idea was he would pass me the baby to feed) and I just sobbed at the feeling of distance between us. I was so relieved when he woke for me and pretty much bed-shared from birth. I had so many guilty feelings like I was doing it "wrong" but after being so sure I'd do things one way I couldn't imagine not having him in arms reach.

    Also why spend all that money on sensors etc when they can sleep right next to you? I'm of the opp opinion?

    Because it's safer (recommended by SIDS) and easier.

    Default Newborn sleeping in the same room as you?!

    Our bub is 7 weeks old and had been in his own room from Day 1. For us we decided this as so many people we know had trouble transitioning baby later on.
    In addition we knew bub was a loud sleeper from being in hospital. Our bub snores!!
    The first week or two he wasn't a fan. At 6 weeks he dot through. We have the Angelcare monitor.
    Last week during the heatwave we put him in our room in the portacot and I didn't sleep as I didn't feel as safe as I do with the monitor.
    Personal choice but this was right for us!!
