My little man is 16 weeks old and sleeps in the bedroom with us ( in his crib not our bed) but lately I have noticed that whenever myself or his father walk in or out of the room while he is sleeping or almost asleep he wakes up and wants to play. I also think that because we leave the tv on most of the night and we both snore that he is not getting proper rest so Im thinking it may be time for him to go into his own bedroom but not sure if its too soon...
I put my son in his crib, in his room at 2 1/2 months. He has been sleeping better since then. He is 10 months(on sept. 4th) and he has been sleeping through the night for months.
I started Samantha in her own room and crib since she was born and I'm glad we did. She started sleeping throughout the night (no more night feedings) at 5 1/2 weeks. We have a baby monitor in her room so we can see and hear what she's doing at all times. She is almost 5 months old now and we haven't had any issues so far. We also kept the noise level the same when we brought her home from the hospital, so we are don't have to tip toe around her when she's asleep (I can even vacuum and watch t.v.) and it doesn't bother her at all. I say start early and get them use to sleeping in their own room, otherwise you might have them in your room longer than you might like.
We didn't put our son in his room until he was about one. We slept in there with him on an air mattress till he got used to it. Now with the summer being so hot we've all been sleeping on the couch downstairs.So he's going to be two this month and is still not in his room, but we will move him back when he does turn 2. When to sleep him on his own is really up to you. If you want to do it, give it a shot. The transition might be easier with him being so young yet. Good luck!
We were in a one-bedroom apartment until my son was 10 months. During that time he didn't sleep through the night at all. I think it was a combination of him hearing us, and me hearing his every noise, so whenever he would stir at all it would wake me up and then I'd jump out of bed to soothe or feed him. Then we moved into a temporary housing situation, a condo with one bedroom upstairs and one downstairs, and we put him in his own room downstairs. For the first handful of nights he still woke up, but after that, he adjusted, and he's been a great sleeper ever since!
Thanks ladies :) Its probably best for all of us if we put him in his room then we can all get some much needed rest/sleep
My son started sleeping in his own room after a few weeks. We both started off downstairs since I had a c-section. He slept in a bassinet. He was not comfortable in that thing; he definitely needed a firm mattress. Once he moved upstairs to his own room, he slept so much better. Also, I tried sleeping in his room with him since I was breastfeeding and that did not work. He knew I was there, could smell or sense me, so he was always restless, making noise, up and awake, etc. Neither one of us were getting good sleep. I moved to my own room and everything went great from there.
All 3 of my kids were in their own room at about 2 months. It was very hard, but I had to keep reminding myself that they would get much better rest! They all transitioned very well.
