Emma is 8 weeks old and last night she slept from about 11.30 - 5.45 which is really good - normally she's up every 3 hours. However...she may as well have been because of the noises she makes! She constantly sounds like she's about to cry, wake up, grunts, groans...but she's asleep - but it's impossible for us to get much sleep because I'm always listening out for her expecting her to wake up! The FSID website recommends babies are kept in a room with their parents for 6 months. Why is this? If I have her in the room next to ours, with a baby monitor on (we wouldn't even need it because she cries so loudly!) - isn't that really the same? If it is safer for her to stay in our room then I will still do this, but I was just wondering what ages you put your LO in their own room?
