At what age does baby sleep in thier own room?

We have a 6 year old and a one year old. Our rooms are on opposite ends of the house. The baby has his crib in our room and dad is having trouble letting him go to his own room? At what age did your little ones sleep in their own room?

  • My daughter started in her own room at one. If your child sleeps through the night, they are all set to sleep in their own room :)

  • since birth. Our room was right across the hall (very small house) But if it weren't and the rooms were farther apart I can understand having the infant in your room. I would think definately once the child was sleeping through the night you should have them in their own room. I have a friend who still has her daughter (just turned 8) sleeping with her. She thinks that when she is ready she will go to her own room. I totally disagree and feel children should be in their own rooms.

  • We are putting our youngest in his own room now - he's 3. My oldest (and his daddy) went in to his own room when he was 14 months old because we had number 2...

  • Everyone is different. My son stayed in my room until he was 4!! My sister's son was in his room from day one. I kind of think it's cute that dad wants him to stay in your room. That's nice.
