 How old were your kids when you stopped getting up in the middle of the night to check on them? or do you still? 

my son is 5 months old and everytime i put him to sleep, i'll wake up an hour later to check on him lol, and hes in the same room as me, in his crib though. and most of the time i can hear him breathing or sucking on his paci, but if i can't i have to get up and check. I feel like a paranoid freak sometimes! lol.  does it ever stop or get easier to put them to bed?

Ha! It does get easier... my DD is 3 months and she sleeps in the same room as me. I'd check on her every 30 min or so... needless to say I hardly slept.  Eventually the need for sleep won and I only check on her if I wake up (or hear her stirring)...

if I wake up at night I still sometimes check on my older two they are 4 and 7, but that is when I use the bathroom between ther rooms and in the winter when their doors are open anyways, I just peek in. The baby still wakes up at night some and she is in our room so I check on her more often, she is 7 months. She wil be ot of our room when she sleeps through the night better
