    Well I've taken the plunge.....:argh:

    We've been on holiday this week and added to that we've ditched her dummy completely. She's taken to it so well - she's been falling asleep easier than before strangely :wacko:. I've even left her to fall asleep on her own when I usually have to sit with her and stroke her hand through her crib rails (in my room) or she will do the running man until she's wide awake and laughing....:dohh:

    So on our last night on holiday, I decided that this was as good a time as any for her to move next door into her own room. I really wanted her in with us till she was at least 6 months but it just seems like a good time as she's taking so well to the change in her bed routine. She's 6 months old on wednesday so.....

    I've put the monitor right next to her head so I can hear her breathe - it feels like the day we brought her home all over again!

    Wow I am planning on putting alfie in his own room next week as he is very good for bed. Goes up at 8:30 then feed and change him until 9 then goes in his cot awake. A kiss and goodnight from mummy lights out door shut drifts off and sleeps until 6 am. Hope he takes to his room.
    Hope your LO is doing good so far she sounds like she is and no dummy that's a real bonus. Good luck Hun.

    Aww well done :) I am dreading putting Simeon in his own room, but I know the time is coming as his head is almost touching the top of his basket with his feet touching the bottom! You have inspired me to start using his cot a little, maybe during the day first to get him used to his room.

    I hope Hebe takes to it well, good luck! xxx

    Thanks girls.

    Chelle - I started her napping in there during the day about 6 weeks ago ish so she knows where she is when she wakes up. She grew out of her moses so she went in a crib at 4 months as I definately wasnt ready for her to move then....:shy:...we shall see..... x

    Hope it continues to go well!

    Jasmine has been in her crib and own room since birth... I still have some nights when she is super quiet that I will go in and check on her.

    I found that lately she has been having a hard time falling asleep with anyone holding her, I think they just get too stimulated by people maybe? Luckily i've been able to put her in her own bed and she goes to sleep.

    Aww hope everything went well hun. Rebecca is the same age and went into her own room 3 weeks ago and I hardly slept for the first 4 days!!:rofl: I was checking on her all the time
    I have an angelcare monitor and have it right next to her head too!!

    she was getting way too big for her crib so had no choice, if it was up to me she would have been in with us until she started school:dohh:

    Awww well done! Alfie sleeps in his big cot but it has the side off and is pushed right up to our bed, the matresses are the same height so really it is almost like he is co sleeping. He still wakes every night between 4am and 5am for a feed tho, so I am not moving him till he stops doing that because it is so much easier with him right next to me!

    Well done Hebe, keep sleeping well :cloud9:

    :wohoo:

    Well done Hebe. We moved Kian into his own room at a similar age to Hebe and it was so much easier not creeping around.

    Also well done to both of you for ditching the dummy, we lasted approxiamatley 2 hours :blush: before we gave up. Niamh is sooooo attached to it and i feel so guilty taking it away from her, plus she moaned and moaed until i could take no more!!! Will probably be in trouble again when we go to the hospital on wednesday :dohh:.
