I'm in the same boat at the moment too. DD is 11 months and starts out in her cot but quickly ends up in my bed. I've tried having the cot right next to me with the side down- didn't work and she was back in bed with us after a few nights of trying. I enjoyed co-sleeping, but now she's moving around a lot more and I either wake up to her kicking me in the back because she's lying across the bed instead of down the bed, or to her pulling my hair...

Get a single or double bed/mattress on floor for bub in their room. Co sleep in there but YOU leave after they fall off to snoozeville. If they need resettling - pop in again then leave. But if you fall asleep its no prob.

Hey all! Just updating: the only thing that worked was sleep school.. She has slept through every night in her own cot in her own room sice the first night nearly 4 months ago. I have to say it has been a god send, it was really tough for the first week but it's so lovely to have my bed back! I would recommend it to anyone having sleep issues, I tried a lot of things before sleep school, and I have a better understanding of sleep cycles now.
Hope you have all resolved your sleep woes xx

My dd is two tomorrow and still co sleeping. We did get her in her own bed for around 4-6 weeks but she got over it and is back in with me haha.
Hope it's all still going well OP. we never tried sleep school but we considered it a few times. Kind of glad we didn't as I think dd's just a very determined and sensitive little girl so it would have just distressed her.
