  • If he wakes up with every little noise, then it probably wouldn't be a good idea to put him in her room. She may talk in her sleep, toss and turn, or simply snore and keep him awake.

  • ok let me fix my question he is a good sleeper but like when my husband n i want to relax in the room and just watch tv we can't cuz that wakes him up or when we take showers the water wakes him up stuff like that but when my daughter is asleep she is out.. also people have been telling me to try it so he doesn't get to used to sleeping in our room

  • I would put him in there, why not? He's old enough to sleep through the night. What is your hesitation?

  • Does baby wake up during the night to eat? If so it would not be a good idea to share rooms becaue the 6 yr old will be woken up, and then over tired for school. If not and you think your 6 year old wont do anything that may accidentally harm baby then go for it.
