SIDS recommend keeping baby in the room for a minimum of the first 12 months to reduce the risks of cot death and sids, is their a particular reason you want to move baby? Having to get up and down to another room is a pain in the bum when they feed through the night in your room it's way more convenient. I just couldn't do it I am way to paranoid sadly one of my best friends lost her 9 month old little boy to sids in may this year and that has made me even more paranoid my 14 month old still sleeps in our room.
These are the SIDS guidelines for safe sleeping. It's recommended that baby sleep in the same room for the first 6-12 months. Is there a reason she needs to be in her own room already? If not, you might consider waiting a bit? Perhaps you could meet him in the middle and wait a couple more months?
Sorry my phone did something weird!

We moved Katelyn to her own room around 2-3 months, which was just across a hall from us, doors wide open, bathroom light on for easy navigation to her if she woke, the reason was because she was a noisy sleeper but sleeping through, I'd been sleeping with ear plugs in when she was in the cot next to me because she was waking me through the night while she slept peacefully... But she had a movement monitor on (a snuza halo, but there's heaps of different kinds) so when I did wake and panic because my newborn baby had just slept 6-8 hours without waking I'd remember she had a monitor and was fine.
Anglecare do sound, movement and video monitors - perhaps that would help?
Though on the other hand now she's 18 months old she's pretty much cosleeping full time so I'm totally understanding his side too. Would he feel better at 6 months?

I only want to move her because I don't want her to 'realise' we are next to her, and her get used to it as I want her to be able to go into her own room by herself and go to sleep not worried about where we are, etc. I was a very clingy baby and wouldn't sleep by myself so I don't want her to go through the same thing
I would probably leave it a little while longer ....
Thankyou guys! I will look into that monitor. Her room is right next to ours so I would easily hear her, but getting the monitor would out him at ease
