    Default transitioning to own room

    How long did it take your baby to get used to sleeping in their own room?

    and at what age?

    dd has been in her own room for almost 2 weeks and she's gone backwards in her sleep, sitting up every hour or so crying. patting her back to sleep doesn't work.

    We moved to own room about 12 weeks old (too big for basinette) and I dont remember there being a difference in her sleep.

    I've been wondering about transitioning too. My LO is 8 weeks and i sleep with her in the lounge room(so hubby can sleep and go to work without dying) and i know this can't keep going on for too much longer but I'm not sure where to move her. all the books say to have them in their cot in their room by 6 months to avoid sleep association problems, but then they advise you to share a room with them for 12 months for SIDS prevention.
    It seems no matter what you do you're doing it wrong lol.

    We moved DS into his own room at about 3 months I think it was...anyway, he took to it straight away. Very first nap he took in his own cot he slept for three hours lol.

    I think our noises through the night probably disturbed his sleep. He also seems to enjoy having the freedom to roll around and do crazy things during the night. He's quite a long baby and just didnt fit into his bassinet anymore. We do still co-sleep in the mornings though (from about 5 or 6am to about 6:30-8am when he starts the day) but I love my morning bubby snuggles
