  • Our daughter was about 18 months too. I a really glad we waited. On the day we decided to move her, my husband took her out for the day. I set up her bed with knew sheets and blankets. Decorated with all her books and toys. When she saw it, she was so excited. It was like she had been waiting for her own space. We put her to bed in her own room that night and she has never had any issues.

  • i kept my dd in our room until she was almost 2 (in her own bed though) the transition was easier for her than it was me lol

  • well my son got his own room at 7 months. it actually worked really well because he's breastfed, so being away from me kept him from waking up as much to eat. my stepson is 3 didnt get his own room till DH and I got married! But he's done amazing, he sleeps in his big boy thomas room all night long!

  • My first had her own room from day one. I moved the twins to the nursery at 3 months, but they still have to share with each other.

  • MY younger two were 12mos. My oldest vwas 10mos but at age 2 we moved where he had to be with us till 2 1/2 so we had to get him back in his own room at 2 1/2 and that was so so HARD! I think 12mos is the best age! AFter that they start getting attached to being close to you. Ideally 6-12mos are the best ages but I did noth my girls at 12mos and it was very easy.
