Ds1, 6 months
Ds2, 2 years
Ds3, probably won't go till he's 3 and gets out of the cot.
Ds1 is the worst sleeper of all and still comes into our bed each night. He's now 6.
I just got 'Jack' of going into another room each night at 3am to pat and shhh. I'm more than happy to keep them in my room till they sleep through.
I always thought I would keep DD in our room until 12 months as per SIDS guidelines, but she was so noisy in her sleep and started waking when we came to bed, she went to her own room at 3 months. Although I always sleep in the same room as her when she's sick (trundle bed for this exact reason).
From memory it was around 10/11 months. DS had no issues with the transition.
Prob from around 2? But we still sleep with him here and there.
DS technically moved into his cot at about 8mo. In reality he bed shared with us until he was 2 and a bit. He's 2.5 now and voluntarily sleeps in his own bed all night long.
DD1 moved into the cot in her room at 8mo, and that was because I caught her standing up in the bassinet 😳
She slept much better on her own.
We moved DD at 9 months. We were ready to move her at about 7 months but going to shift house and I thought getting her settled into her own room would be a PITA and didn't want to do it twice so we waited. Turns out that it was easy to transition her, we had no problems.
My 2 went into their own rooms day we got home from hospital each time .
