DD is 7 months and though we were sure we'd keep her in our room until 12 months we're thinking about moving her to her own room pretty soon. She is a VERY light sleeper and will often wake because we rustle the quilt, or one of our ankles crack etc. We've had a pretty seriously rough time with her sleep and after persisting with a fairly set routine for a few weeks we are starting to see some improvement thankfully! We still think she would sleep a lot better in her own room though (right next to ours). We would too.
My issue is that DSD (15) is with us every second weekend, generally only for one night though (getting way too cool for us). As we only have a 2-bedroom place, this is where her bed is, and where we will be moving DD to.
I really don't want DSD to have to be disturbed by DD's night wakings/us going in to her or for DSD to have to tiptoe around etc. DP doesn't think this is such a big problem but I know how important space is to a 15 yr old girl and I want her to have that when she's with us.
So the only obvious solution to me is to have DD sleep with us the one night a fortnight that DSD is here. Do you think it will totally mess with her sleep? I suppose I am stressed because we have had a really hard few months sleep wise (between 10-20 wakings a night), co-slept our way through most of it until I couldn't handle that anymore and now that we are seeing good changes I am terrified of screwing it up!
The other option is bringing her cot into our room while DSD is here but that means dismantling it to get it in and out of the rooms. Not appealing.
I guess I'm just looking for reassurance that this won't totally muck things up! But I'm well aware that nobody can say for sure
