    Omar is still in our room, & I keep checking on his every 1-2 hrs. When I get tired, I move him to our bed to get more sleep. I dont remember sleeping for a stretch of 4 hrs since he was born. He's been sleeping through since he was 12 weeks, but I cant sleep well since having him as I worry alot. DH is also the same.

    We also have the monitor on still and I'll probably check once and then again before I go to bed. OH checks him on coming in from Night-shift too.

    Evie is still in our room and we have a baby monitor..I'll usually check on her once or twice in an evening till I go to bed. If she's ill, like she is at the moment, I'll check her once every hour or so.

    Ellie is still in our room at the moment before I go to be I check on her everytime I go to the loo or pass the room for something or if I hear her crying etc...... Through the night im a very light sleeper and I more or less check on her every movement. She is going to be moved into her own room in the next week or so which I am still unsure about but I do think I wake her up when we go to bed. I will 110% have the monitor right next to my head though, hehe x

    We also only go in if she cries or she's been awake for a while and isn't managing to get back to sleep. I would be tempted to check on her but she's a light sleeper with a squeaky door and it just isn't worth it!

    My boys share a room and the littlest one goes down first. I check on him when putting Tiarnan to bed and then I check on both of them right before I go to bed myself. I then only get up if Cormac cries out for more than 5 minutes or if Tiarnan comes into our room. When Tiarnan comes in I put him straight back in bed and then check on Cormac as I walk out.

    Elyse is 22 months and I only check on her after about an hour of being in bed if she's gone straight to bed quietly, then before I go to bed I make sure she's covered up etc. Otherwise not unless she cries for us. I check on her in the morning if I'm awake before she is (and usually I sleep as long as possible so she's my alarm clock lol)

    If I'm up to pee or something I peek in and watch her sleep on my way back to bed too, partially to make sure flushing didn't wake her

    Never unless something out of the ordinary happens like a noise of something.
    Obviousy if she crs we go through and if we hear her drop her dummy we may take one to her but mostof the time not

    You can hear a pin drop on our baby monitor as well as her breating so I dont really see the need to check on her unless she cries or I think something is off

    I'm a bit obsessive about checking Joe I think!! I check him about half an hour after he's gone to sleep and then probably every hour or so. Then again before I go to bed, but not in the night unless he wakes up.
