Uncategorized Most parents sleep in with their baby in the early days, preferring to have the bassinet close to their own bed for easy access during night wakings. But eventually all parents will face the same task: Your baby will, sooner or later, need their own space. You may find that as your baby gets older, he also gets a lot more aware of movement and sounds around him.
You may also find that you are not fully relaxed when you go to bed scared to roll over, anyone? Here are some quick tips for making it as painless as possible: Room sharing and especially co-sleeping is a wonderfully intimate way to bond with your baby and it is little wonder that making the transition from your room to theirs brings a lump to your throat.
You have to allow your baby space to grow and develop and you also need to ensure that the whole family is getting a good rest at bedtime. Think on your room sharing fondly, but remember it was only ever a temporary arrangement. Make sure your baby is familiar with their room before the move. Going cold turkey may not be the best option for your little one.
Take some time before the move to introduce your baby to his room first. Spend a little longer in there each day, reading a story or playing with toys. After a day or two, let him explore his bed, perhaps even dedicate some play time actually inside the bed too. Let him see that the room is safe, and that the bed is safe too. This all helps to familiarise your baby ready for the big move.
The last thing you want to do is cause added distress by changing his surroundings at this time. Wait until all ailments are over and repeat the familiarisation process if necessary. There is no race and timing could be crucial for a smooth transition.
When your baby is ready for the transition, start off with day time naps in his own room.
Talk to your baby as you put him to bed and let him know it is okay for him to be sleeping there. As with any major change, doing it during the day time is often a lot easier for everyone. Once he has settled into the routine of sleeping in his own bed during the day, sleeping there at night will be a much more natural next step. I know the temptation will be there! Give him a chance.
However you know that you have had a fun and stimulating loving day with your child and that tonight is about you teaching your child how to self soothe and sleep by themselves. She says she has been given "no advice" about how to co-sleep safely.
Go in and reassure him, let him know that you are there for him when he needs you. This is a skill he needs to learn. And do let us know how you get on with the move!
