Moved her to her own room when she was 10 weeks. She was a horrible sleeper and was outgrowing her rock and play. We've had no sleep for several months and DH's mom was her offering some relief at night. She didn't complain and after a few nights loved it because she sprawl any way she wanted.
Both were around 7 months. We were disturbing DS so decided it was best he went into his room. DD was very settled in our room but we're expecting again so decided it was best she got used to being in her room. Her sleep wasn't great for a few days but she soon got used to it.
This one will probably be in our room until he's mostly sleeping through because he wont have his own room to move into.
DD1 was 10 weeks, outgrew moses basket and she had a huge sleigh type cot that we couldn't fit in our room. She slept right through the night from the moment we moved her.
DD2 was 7 weeks and was even longer, she was a very light, noisy sleeper. My husband starts work at 5am and would wake her getting up and going in shower in en-suite. She didn't like her cot to begin with, added white air wrap bumpers so it looked more like her Moses basket and she settled great.
I used a monitor with a movement pad for some peace of mind, if they stop breathing the alarm goes off. I used to check on DD1 all the time in the beginning because she was such a sound sleeper, never made a sound and would sleep from 7pm till 9am, no noise ever woke her lol. DD2 is so noisy, she grunts and moans all night so i always know shes ok, she still keeps me awake some nights and shes in a different room! Sometimes it sounds like shes awake but when i go through to keep she has her eyes shut, just makes noises in her sleep. She sleeps 6pm till 8am now
We moved her for part of the night at 8 months. We bedshared otherwise and would continue to bedshare from when she started to wake during the night. Personally, I didn't find it reduced waking when she was in her own room. I just had to walk further and had a harder time falling back to sleep after those wake ups. But every baby is different. She started to sleep through the night in her own time and we didn't really do anything to encourage it, but it was well into toddlerhood, I'm afraid.
My baby hasn't even got his own room so will be in with us for the foreseeable future till we put the other two boys in together and get the babies room sorted. We are in no rush he's a terrible sleeper and always ends up sleeping in my bed anyway so its best that he is in my room for now anyway so I'm not walking back and forward all night!
My baby is six months next week and I definitely don't feel ready to move him out of our room yet! He still wakes two times a night for feedings usually, so it'd be annoying anyway. The only downside is DH's alarm or snoring wakes him sometimes.
