We have bed-shared and coslept with our son for his first 3 years. It wasn't always easy for us, but we did it. He's really showing signs of needing to sleep in his own room. He gets upset and cries in the mornings now when the alarm goes off because he's not ready to get up. He sleeps on his own mattress next to our bed all night long now and only climbs into our bed a few times a week.

We've set up his 'big boy' room with all of his toys and some cool decorations that he didn't know he had! He loves his new room so far.

We're still working on setting up the last of the safety issues with the room, like adding a CO/fire detector. We're not going to move his mattress in his room for about a week.

Until then, are there any books out there for children who have always coslept and bed shared that are moving to their own rooms that we could read to him? The only ones I can find are about moving from the crib to a real bed, but that's not our situation. He's been in his real bed since he was 18 months old.

I just recently got this book for dd:

It's Time to Sleep in Your Own Bed.
It is the only book I could find out there for transitioning from cosleeping to their own bed. We haven't really started reading it to her yet, though, so I don't have much feedback on it.
