At 6 months old is it time for my son to start sleeping in his own room?

My son is 6 months old and I really want him to sleep in his own room, he has been sleeping all through the night except for when my husband gets up to leave for work. We also have a baby monitor so I can hear if anything goes wrong. I kinda wanted to wait till after winter but I feell like he is going to get to attached to sleeping in his parents room? Sould I move him into his own room?

  • It is up to you and your family dynamic. I personally co-slept until my kids were a year old, I was breastfeeding and it was easier than having to get up and go get him from another room.
    If you are ready for him to move to his own room, then move him. Either way it is going to take time to get him completely use to it. So it you do it now or in a few months.

    My pediatrician told me that babies do not really start making habit until about 15 months, which is why they say to wean from the bottle by then.

    Good luck.

  • There isn't really a right or wrong time... whenever YOU are ready is when you start the transition :)

  • Our boys always had their own room. Time to ease him into it.

  • My 13 month old still sleeps in our room! :D

    However, if you want him out of your room, I would start putting him down in his room for naps. Then when those go well, put him down there at night too. If he wakes up in the middle of the night needing you, just bring him to your room then (unless you aren't too tired to get him back to sleep in his room). That is usually how we transitioned all of ours.
