It isn’t that big of a deal quite frankly it is only 10 feet so it is like she is in the same room with you. You will have a monitor in your room you can hear/see her.  Personally I don’t agree with co sleeping but I would never tell a mother not to do it.  Our son spent the first 4 weeks in NCIU and once he got home he slept in a cradle in our room but that quickly moved to his own room due to just like your daughter he made to much noise in his sleep, I couldn’t sleep.  It is okay to move her.

I agree that you need to do what is best for your entire family. I am not a proponent of bed sharing as a safety matter but I understand wanting to keep your LO close by. Congrats that baby is sleeping through the night so well already.

My son was a noisy sleeper too and I moved him to his own bedroom at about 7 weeks. He was in the next room, so I just left both doors open and didn’t even use a monitor. He certainly didn’t mind being there, and my husband and I slept better as well.

Could you try sleeping on a couch or guest bed for a night just to see how it goes? IE- she does ok, you do ok (not up al the time to check on her). It might be easier to move you for a couple of nights to see then move her and possible jinx this whole awesome sleep routine. Which BTW is making me feel some hope that after my DD is here I might get 4 hours of sleep in a row, which pretty much everyone is telling me won’t happen till 3 months. (seriously- isn’t that legally torture at some point?)

awakemysoul:  I hear ya on the noisy sleeper! I don’t think you’re a bad mom for moving her already, I was about to as well! Around 8 weeks she got much better, though or else I would have moved her!

keesl:  oh don’t listen to what people say! You’ll get sleep if you’re baby is a good sleeper, which isnt as rare as people like to think. My baby has never slept less than at least one 4 hour stretch at night except for the occasional bad night here and there, where she’d only sleep 3 hours at a time. you’ll be just fine! 🙂

MrsWBS:  I had people saw you had to WAKE UP a breast fed infant after 3 hours so they don’t, IDK, starve? Which is just horrifing to me.

keesl:  no no no!! After they have regained their birthweight there is no waking them up (at least not in my house lol and our ped sai that was fine). She regained by day 4 though so never was an issue for us. 

My biggest recommendation is to swaddle from day 1 – even if they act like they hate it at first, keep at it they will learn to like it! LOUD white noise is second, but not always feasible if you’re room sharing. You’ll be fine! It goes by so fast, LO will be sleeping through the night before you know it!

Our bedroom and nursery sound the same as yours. The crib is maybe 10 ft away from our bed, but there is a wall seperating us. We put DD in the crib right away. My mom stayed with us the first couple of nights and it seemed easier to have her in her nursery so my mom and husband could switch off throughout the night helping me since I had a c-section and couldn’t lift her out of the crib or bassinett. Then when my mom left, we just kept her in there and she has done really well. I can still hear all of hr little noises which gives me piece of mind, but they aren’t loud enough to keep us awake. We don’t have a monitor, so if she makes an unfamiliar sound I go check on her. It has worked out great for her and I’m glad we won’t have to transition her in the future.

I am so jealous your baby is sleeping so well! I think you should move the baby into the nursery and not feel bad–the whole idea is that you BOTH get good sleep so that you can be healthy and happy! We just moved our DD into her nursery at 7.5 weeks, but more in the hope that she will sleep better without hearing us. So far the longest stretch she’s slept is 3.5 hours, and then she didn’t sleep again the rest of the night. So count your blessings haha!

awakemysoul:  OMG I’m SO ready to do this as well! DD is 9w old and is a sh*tty sleeper and LOUD. She eats every 2 hours, sigh and inbetween feedings does exactly what you described. We are moving to hawaii in july and are going to spend our first 60 days or so in a 1 bedroom condo, so we just figured instead of moving her now into her own room and then back into the room with us that we’d continue to room share until we are in our permanent home…but if we weren’t moving DD would be in her crib for sure!
