    Our DD was in a bassinet in our room then at 3 weeks we just put her in her cot for her nap and she slept really well....we put her in her cot and both her and us slept better from that night. She slept better and for longer from that night and starting sleeping through from 5 weeks. She's close to our room and we also have a monitor

    Not for us. He has had nights where he sleeps through, and nights where he doesn't regardless of where he has been sleeping. Teeth, being sick, how much he has eaten, being over-stimluated during the day or having disrupted/too long nap are the things that affect his sleep. Being in his room made no difference.

    Yep. I planned on having my little one in our room till at least 6-9 months but he outgrew the bassinet at 5 months. He slept heaps better and so did we. X

    Yes, I was scared to but both DD and I have been sleeping MUCH better since I miss it but it's the best for us both. She doesn't want to nurse all night long, she doesn't wake all the time.. maybe we were snoring and waking her, maybe she hated her bassinette? Who knows why, but she did.
    Her bedroom is also next to ours as well.. so even though I had this weird fear of the monitor stopping working I knew I would hear her if she cried a lot anyway. On that note it's also helped her to self settle because I turn the monitor down low.. I don't hear her making noise (she talks to herself and kicks the cot in the night sometimes as her way of getting back to sleep) but I'd definitely hear her if she cried and needed me.
    So this worked well for us, but you have to do what suits the both of you best. Maybe remind your partner that this is a short stage of life

    We moved our son into his own room at 4 months - he went from waking 7 times a night to once!
