    My newborns went into their own rooms the day we got home from hospital. This included my premmie 6 week early duaghter. She had her door shut to prevent ds getting to her .. Everyone is different but I wanted my 2 in their own rooms straightaway to start good sleeping habits . My kids are now 18 and 20 so times have changed.

    We followed SIDS guidelines and had DS in a bassinet in our room for the first 6 months. We are happy with that decision and if I have another Bub will do the same again.

    Having your baby in the same room is pretty important in the first 6-12 months. I wouldn't want to leave a tiny infant in the other room. Also newborns need to feed round the clock and have unfettered access to boobs in the early weeks to establish a good supply for breastfeeding and if your wife has to get up and go into another room to get the baby every 30minutes she will be exhausted.

    Default To sleep with the baby in the same room or not

    Ps don't let anyone tell you that you need to make a baby sleep alone in another room or you'll have a problem later. Plenty of adults don't like sleeping alone so why would a helpless newborn?

    I'm sorry but that's nonsense. Infants are tiny helpless little creatures and they are meant to be very close to their mother and pretty much attached to the breast early on. It's got nothing to do with how they will sleep later.

    By six months 60% will sleep through the night (5hours) and 40% won't. There's bugger all you can do about which camp your baby is in and you'll drive yourself mad trying and worrying about it.

    Look up Howard Chilton and get his book Baby on Board. He's a well respected paediatrician.

    Yes, I slept in the same room as my DS. I also had a co-sleeper mattress which attached to our bed so that he was in his own space but I could just roll over and pat him etc.

    He still prefers it when I sleep in his room.

    Yep, it's safer to have bub in the same room. Much better for attachment also, and easier for those ups and downs during the night. If one parent needs to be really well rested for work the next day might consider temporarily sleeping in another room to avoid exhaustion.
