  • Naps, from birth; night, at around 14 months, when she was sleeping through the night. I would have died from sleep deprivation if I hadn't been able to sleep while she nursed.

  • Honestly, 3 months.

  • my dd slept in my room, in her bassinet, until she was 3 1/2 months old. now she sleeps in her room, and i only go in if she needs to to feed her (usually somewhere around 5am). i'm lucky, though. she's been a good sleeper from the start! :)

  • in her own bed (but in our room) at birth and in her own room at 4 months when she outgrew the bassinet

  • from the day we brought her home. before we moved she slept in her crib in our room. but now she has a big girl bed in her own room and that is where she sleeps for naps and at night.

  • My older 3 slept in our room until they were sleeping through the night (around 5 months). Then they went to their own room.
    My youngest slept in our room in her pack-n-play until she was 16 months because we had no where else to put her.
