My son will be 10 months on the 27 and from the day he came home from the hospital he has been in his own room which is directly across from ours. He has always been a great sleeper, Has slept 10-12 hours since around 11 weeks. Lately it seems he is being disturbed more by little sounds we make. The biggest is the fact he shares a wall with the bathroom and since my husband has chrones he uses the bathroom a few times a night and I noticed the flushing of the toilet and running water from the sink disturb him ( I have a video monitor so I see him fidget) his room in on the road side also and we have quite a bit of traffic. And the garbage trucks come around 4 am once a week this woke him this morn. Normally he resettles but this morn he didnt and after an hour and a half of him trying ( he wasnt crying) he finally started crying and the day began at 545 norm is 730.....so my question is. We have another bedroom upstairs which I know would be quiter and away from the bathroom and the road. Should I move him upstairs? My husband and I would have to be downstairs. I feel like I cant protect him as easily if he is on another floor. i have a video monitor so i can see him but I just dont kno what to do. so I was wondering how it works for others as I know that there are homes where the babies and parents are on different floors. If your babies are on another floor is it by choice or the only option? I dont know if my feling nervous is lagit or just being over protective of my first and only baby. Reccomendations are needed. thanks ladies!!!!!
