DP and I were thinking of moving our 8.5 wk old baby from his bassinet in our room to his cot in his room soon. We thought it would be ok to do at 2-3 months old but after talking to my GP the other day, I am now feeling paranoid and apperhensive about wether or not to do it.
I went to my doctor for my throat infection and we ended up chatting about my DS. The topic of where baby sleeps came up and the doc said she doesn't believe in moving the baby to their own room too soon (ie before 6 months) as she believes it can be a cause of SIDS. She said that babies like to hear you and know you're near by and if they can't then they may get bored or lonely and she puts that down to a possible contributer of SIDS.
Man!! I was just getting myself used to the idea of not having my baby sleeping next to me (in his bassinet) and was getting up the courage to make the move to his room and she says that! Is there any reason I should be listening to her? Now I don't know what to do and am apprehensive about moving him....like if I do now and the idea is in my mind about SIDS then I've jinxed the whole thing and something bad will happen to my little man sad
(that makes more sense in my head then it does when written lol).
Anyway, now I'm confused. Any suggestions? At what age did you all move your babies into their own rooms?
