Sheraz is 6 months, 1 week and 1 day old
The day Sheraz hit the 6 month mark was the day we moved him to his own room. We have been planning for it and have decided to wait until he is 6 months old.
And so now the time has come. These are few reasons why we want to 'let him go':-
First reason is because he tends to be restless when we're around. I don't want him to hear us and wake him up since we always sleep later than him.
Second is because we want him to get used to it and cultivate this habit. The same as our decision of not letting him sleep in our bed.
Third is because we hope that Sheraz will be more likely to grow into an independent and confident child. As long as he's happy and feel secured, he will not be worried about sleeping alone, as this is what he has come to expect.
Fourth is because we have set his room before he was born. And me, being a neat-freak, like to have his cot to belong to the room because it's cute. (I know I'm a freak)
Fifth is because we need privacy and we need to sleep better too!
Monitor is not included in our budget for the time being. So we keep his and our doors opened. His room is the opposite of ours, right down a very short hallway so I can hear him anytime with my supermom ears.
The first night he woke up 3 times. I guess he was trying to adapt himself to a new ambiance. The second night he settled back into routine, which is waking up once at night and wakes up for the day around 5.30 am. After a few days his sleep routines became little longer. Sometimes I leave him alone in his room, slowly he has started recognizing his room and everything in it. Alhamdulillah he's fine.
