    DD slept in a bassinet next to me for about 1 or 2 days.

    I had a lot of trouble sleeping, so we moved her to the office with DP (he usually works at night, and sleeps in there most nights). She was in there with him for at least a couple of months, then spent a couple more months sleeping in the bassinet just outside the office door. I don't remember how old she was when we moved her to her own room - maybe 6 months? She didn't consistently sleep through until about a year, so I was feeding her/DP resettling her overnight for that time.

    DS slept in his cot in our room (it's a big room) until he was 10 months old. DF and I always slept in the same room with him. I wasn't worried about DF getting woken up because he is such a heavy sleeper, he doesn't even notice. I had our son up for 4 hours crying on and off one night as a newborn, and he slept right through it If I want his help, I have to physically wake him up.

    Both of mine slept in their cots in their own room once home from the hospital. I slept in the bedroom with DH.

    Both our kids were in their own rooms from birth. I just have the monitor next to my bed and get up and go into the feeding chair in bubs room for overnight feeds.
    I can't imagine not sleeping next to DH!

    We will follow the same pattern with this bub as we did with the other 2. Ds will be in with us while he is in his bassinet. On those tough nights I will sleep in babies room on the spare bed as no point both of us getting little sleep and especially when dh is the one having to be getting up for work. We do the same when the kids are sick, one of us will sleep in the spare room with the sick child rather than us both being up.
