    Default Newborn sleeping

    Is there a recommended age that your newborn should sleep in the same room as you? Im interested to hear when other people moved bub into their own room.

    Default Newborn sleeping

    I thought the sids recommendation was in your room until 1. I could be wrong though. I moved dd into her own room at 6 months because she got too big for her cosleeper. She still doesn't really sleep alone though because most nights I end up on a mattress on her floor.

    Eta - she's now 9 months old.

    Sids & kids reccomends having bub sleep in the same room (in their own cot or bassinet) for the first 6-12 months as it has been shown to reduce the risk of sids.

    I am an extremely light sleeper though, and DS was a very noisy newborn (grunting, snuffling, etc), so he was moved to his own room with an angelcare monitor on the 2nd night home!

    I think the recommended age is 6 months?

    All of ours stayed in our room until around this age. But that was mainly because night feeds and waking dropped off around this age

    SIDS recommendations are 12 months as far as I'm aware but ds is still in our room in his cot at almost 13 months as he is still requiring me several times a night and I'm not willing to keep walking to the other room.

    It's 6-12 months as far as I'm aware.

    DD was in our room until 2. DS, who's 6 months is still in our room and will be until he's at least 1.

    I've also heard that it's recommended for 6-12 months. Ds cosleeps with us still at 15 months and we don't plan to stop anytime soon.

    My first was 4 when she moved out (cheaper to air condition one room lol ), My second was 2 & a half, My third is 3 and still in my room (no where else for her to go). I was co sleeping with her but just before the baby was born I got her her own bed. My newborn is in bed with me.
    If We don't move from this house in the future I think I will be the one that moves out (to the lounge room) and my two youngest have the room.
