Question co-sleeper moving into his own bedroom...

nervous! we're moving in a couple weeks from a 1 bedroom apartment with the crib right next to our bed, to a big house where DS will have his own room...on the second floor. i'm definitely apprehensive about this transition, and not thrilled with the idea of having to scramble up stairs to get him in the middle of the night. how would you suggest we ease into this? keep him in our bed, the familiar, for a while at first? or just jump right in? i feel like he might freak if he wakes up in a strange room all by himself and then refuse to sleep on his own again. we've wanted to put an end to co-sleeping for a while, but he still nurses a lot at night and i don't want to traumatize the kid! i wish his bedroom was at least on the same floor, next to us or something. any suggestions?

how about keeping him in your room until he gets used to the new house then start using his room for naps first, then night when you're ready. Nothing saying that just because you have the room that you ave to change anything

I personally would keep the nighttime routine the same for now and start with naps in his own room...that is what has worked well for my boys when it was time to transition

Re: co-sleeper moving into his own bedroom...

We lived with my parents for the first 9 months of DS's life due to our house in another state not selling. DS coslept and nursed constantly. A few days after moving into our own house and 2 successful naps in his new room and crib, we moved him out of our room. The first night was a little rough because he woke up a few times but DH went to him and soothed him. After about a week, it was like he had always slept there and all was fine.
