    I’ve heard that if you’re going to do it, it’s good to do it by month 4 or so, when you can start sleep training. Before then, I’d say it’s up to you- I’d go with whichever way YOU will sleep better!

    (We just moved our 3 month old to his crib, and the first week in his crib he slept longer every night than he ever had before. Wish we’d done it sooner!)

    @jilian: Although I don’t have kids yet, this is what we plan to do (although obviously plans might change when we are actually in the situation).  But I intend for future children to sleep in their own room from day 1.

    OP – Since your son (who is adorable!) is currently sleep with you, I think you should move him whenever you feel comfortable.  Whether that is now, in two weeks or in two months.

    I did it at 1 month.  My husband had been helping at night when co-sleeping and he asked for more sleep so I went ahead and moved LO into his room then.  We hadn’t been swaddling when we were co-sleeping so I didn’t swaddle when I transitioned him to his crib and boy did that cause a lot of sleepless nights and frustration.  I finally clued into the fact that I could and should swaddle him and things became much improved from there.  I did sleep in the guest room next to the nursery for about a month so I could very quickly get to him when he woke each time though so he wouldn’t fully wake and it was easeir to nurse him back down.

    My children slept in a crib in their own room from the first night home from the hospital.

    It was the standard when they were babies , but times have changed.

    Look at those big, beautiful eyes.  Ahhhhhhh!  🙂

    I’m no help here.  We just moved Addie at 11 months.  We had absolutely zero issues, but she’s also been napping in her crib since 3 months, and we used to put her to sleep in her crib; we’d just move her into our bed when we went to sleep for the night.

    I have no  advice, but since you were talking about him possibly missing the noise of the TV, my SIL swears by the white noise machines. She has used one for all 3 of her kids.

    Ok, so that was advice, and he is totally adorable!!

    Do it the sooner the better.  We have a kiddo on the way so I can’t say from experience other than learn this lesson from my SIL and BIL. They have a 2 yr old who just started to sleep in her own room. And then they wondered why she never wanted to sleep, hmm because she shared a bed with them up until her 2nd birthday!

    For us the plan is 1 month if that max, then kiddo will be in his own room

    We also did the crib from Day 1. I agree with a previous poster that if you’re interested in light and sound, definitely try a sound machine. We use the homedics sound and spa projection machine and love it!

    I’m trying to figure this out too.  Our lil sprout will be 7 weeks tomorrow and I don’t feel quite ready yet.  She sleeps really well, last night over 7 hours, but since that’s not everynight I think I would be really nervous and go and check on her, whereas now I can just roll over and open my eyes and fall back to sleep fast once I see she’s alright.  And when she does wake up to nurse it’s become much shorter snacks until morning so I still don’t fully wake up whereas getting up to go to another room I feel like I’d have a harder time going back to sleep.  So my guess is as she starts to sleep longer at night we’ll slowly transition her over to the crib, maybe around 3  1/2 months.
