Cosleeping to own room - any tips how to make the move?
My baby is 7 months old. She has been in our room since birth and quite often shares the bed as she wakes up crying and a cuddle and warmth is all that will soothe her. As sad as it is I know it's time for her to move into her own room. She hasn' really had a bed time as she just comes to bed when we do as her first block of sleep is the longest so I'm trying to introduce both a bed time and a new room.
On the odd evenings that I've left her my partner has got her to go to sleep eventually but involves a lot of crying before she eventually tires herself out. If possible I'd like to avoid the cry it out method.
She doesn't take a dummy and when I put her down she tends to just wake up and cry again until she is back in arms.
