Well, I don't think what you do has as much effect as their individual personality does. We did the same thing w/ our two: bassinet next to the bed as a newborn (as co-sleep as needed), move to crib in their own room around 3-4 months (still bringing them back to our bed as needed for nursing)...and Gavin is an awesome sleeper (started sleeping through around 3 months, never gets up in the middle of the night, etc.) while Claire is a terrible sleeper (at 9 months she was waking up every 1.5 hours) and now at 17 months, she *usually* sleeps all night, but occasionally wakes up once/night for a nursing session. You just need to follow your heart & your instincts.
