DD moved around 9 weeks. I wanted to get her transitioned before I went back to work at 12 wks.

Around 3 months we started putting her in her room half of the night, but she wasn't fully in her room through until 4 months or so.

It's 6 months now?! Damn. We moved T at maybe 4/5 months? He started waking to eat a bunch and I wasn't on board with that! Even now, I can walk into a room and he's like, FOOOOOD

6 months but if we have a second I think we'd put him/her in their room at 4-5 months. I was so afraid to not have lo with us but the last month or so lo was restless and loud. We all slept so much better after the switch.

I just moved LO out of our room this week - 13 weeks. She has had a rougher time with daytime sleeps, but has just started to sleep through the night a few times (i.e. around 10pm - 7am)

33 months and still in our room! (Though in his own bed) We bed shared and nursed on demand until almost 2 years old, but these nights he falls asleep without nursing and stays asleep all night. We all just feel more comfortable with him close, and our house is really drafty so he stays warmer in our room.

5 months for K, 4 months for M.

6 weeks. I had no idea the recommendation was 6 months. I can't imagine her still being in my room now at 4.5 months. No one would be getting any sleep. When we traveled last month and shared a room she woke up several times a night instead of her usual 1.

We moved DD out of our room around 11-12 weeks as she started lifting both legs up and slamming them down while sleeping. My husband and I could not sleep through it. Her nursery is right next to us and in addition to a video monitor we sleep with the doors open. And I have a breathing monitor she wears on her diaper which sounds an alarm if she stops which is the only way I sleep soundly!

3 weeks. She was a noisy but good sleeper and it was really impacting my sleep.

6 months. Largely because of the AAP guidelines but I just didn't want that far away before then either. Her bedroom is on a separate floor and she just seemed too little to be so far away and alone before that. (Plus I didn't want to climb stairs multiple times/night).

Such a variety!
Our LO's room is super close to ours, so I think we might try to move him at 8 weeks...?

3 weeks and it was a great decision for us. He slept better, I slept better. Win win.
I also think that it's too early for them to realize where they are so it avoids a harder transition when they are more aware. But I understand why people wait! It is scary at first!

From day 1, there was no way I could sleep if we were in the same room! That being said LO's bedroom is right next to ours and we had a video monitor as extra assurance we would hear anything. We all sleep better this way!
I love seeing all the variety of responses, everyone finds their own way and does what works for them.

@MoonMoon: That is so sweet! We may do this too. Do you get a lot of crap for it??

@MoonMoon: Hah, DD is 2.5 and still mostly in our bed. She starts the night out in her room but migrates/sleepwalks on over. I don't really mind. She's used to cosleeping and I appreciate the snuggles, but people are always shocked that we allow it. Mama likes sleep too much to fight the good fight.

We'll be moving her between now (6 months) and 8 months. Her room is cold so were waiting until it warms up a bit to move her in there. Even after we move her, she'll still spend 1 or 2 nights a week in a pack n play in our room. We spend about 10 weekends or more in our camper over the summer and don't want it to be strange for her to be close to us (or to sleep in the PnP).
@wrkbrk: we haven't gotten too much crap for it because as @deerylou: said, it's been really conducive to sleep for all of us! Plus it's made LO a really flexible sleeper on trips, in hotel rooms, different situations, etc.

Still in our room at almost 4 months. We moved our first by this point but she was a loud sleeper. This baby is silent and so still, it freaks me out! So we plan to keep her in our room for a while. Not putting any definite time span on it.

@alphagam84: what breathing monitor do you use?

At 21 months, when we moved onto a bigger apartment

We moved dd around 7 months. I loved having her in our room, but it was time
Did anyone notice that the baby slept better away from Mom? I feel like my son senses me and cries for me.

Our first at 1 month and our second at 2 months. They were SO LOUD and I slept so poorly next to them. Their rooms were right next to ours though. It was fine!

I think it was around 8 weeks with DS1 but I can't remember exactly. DS two is 8 1/2 weeks and still sleeping in our room. He's doing pretty well right now and I'm not sure if I want to rock the boat by putting him in his crib. I'm experimenting this week with naps in his crib, so we will see how that goes.
@winniebee: my husband's nervous about moving him.. (7weeks now) But I'm really losing sleep with baby's grunting and yelling next to me. He doesn't even cry, he just is loud.

He started in a bassinet in our room. At around 4 weeks he was getting super loud in the mornings, so we would move him into this crib in his room for his last stretch of sleep. But he got over that within a few weeks. When he started rolling over, we moved him to his crib, full time, but we started sleeping in the nursery (there's a queen bed in there). That's what we're still doing at 5.5 months. After six months I think we'll talk about moving back to our own room.
@LulaBee: We use the Snuza and love it! It went off one night and when I shook her chest she took a huge gasp of air. Not sure if she had stopped breathing or if it was weird newborn sleep but I'm glad we'll never have to know!
@alphagam84: I just ordered one. I couldn't NOT after I read all of the reviews.
@alphagam84: Also, SO glad it worked for you. That sounds so incredibly scary.

@Mrs Spoon: I know this is an old posting but how long did your sleep regression at 4 months last?
@cake2017: I know you weren’t asking me, but our 4mo regression lasted in total maybe 2.5 weeks with the truly hellish part being 7-10 days.
Just as quickly as it started, it also ended without us doing much.
@SweetiePie: Thank you!!
