    Not at all. Every family is different and you do what works. I just wonder if ine of thise side cots would be better that attach to your bed than a port a cot? Im not familiar with co sleepibg options but Im sure a more helpful hubber would be if thats something you wanted to look into?

    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.

    Do whatever is working for you.
    At that age have you thought about putting a single mattress on the floor instead of a portacot? Or just keep going

    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.
