We're thinking about the same thing. We still have our little girl in her bassinet in our room, but she is quickly outgrowing it. I also really don't sleep well with her in the same room because I hear every little noise she makes, and because she's not the best sleeper i don't even like to roll over in case I wake her. I put my son in his own room at 3 months, and it did help me get some sleep. I read that babies are at most risk from SIDS between 2-4 months of age and that sleeping in the same room as their parents can help that, so I'm a little nervous to put her in her own room. Of course, I don't know how they figured this out!

My daughter has been in her own room since day one. She is on a 7, 10, 1, 4, 7, 10 breastfeeding schedule. And she sleeps from her 10pm feeding until her 7am feeding. I get so much better sleep because she is in her own room.

My daughter slept in a bassinet beside my bed for the first 6 weeks and then when her father was sick we had to move into another room so I put her in her crib in the nursery and she did great. We were fortunate that it worked out so well. I guess it all depends on you and your baby. I would suggest trying their own room when you are ready and see how your little one does.

My daughter went into her cot in her room at 3 weeks - she's a big bubba and got too long for her cradle. Her room is right next to mine so I never had to feel uncomfortable about her not being with me. I can still hear every little sound :)

Both my boys came home from hospital and went straight into their own room.

I have a little insert you put in the cot so they never actually slept straight in the big cot but within a little insert thingy...lol



I guess as long as you are comfortable with it and are close enough at hand to hear if bub cries or have a monitor to listen out for them you will be fine!!



If you are unsure where to sleep them in the cot they do advise to just place bub in the base of the cot and short sheet the bedding so its only enough to cover baby.

I guess if you feel comfortable doing it and are close enough to hear them when they cry or have a monitor to listen out for them you should have no reason not to.

I've read that babies get used to routines starting at 3 months. I think it is when you are ready and think baby is ready. If you are asking, it might be a sign that it is time.

I agree, it depends on the parents. My little girl has always slept in her own room, she's 3 months now :)

That is really up to you. I don't know of any specific guidelines on that one. When you feel comfortable enough to do so. Also depends on your parenting style. Some Mom have their babys in their own rooms in the cribs immediately. Some keep them in a crib in their own room. Some co-sleep with their babys. Depends on what you feel comfortable with doing.
