Has anyone had a child chose to leave the family bed one thier own as of yet? DD has since moved into her bedroom and her own bed, which has shocked me a bit. I'm not against her guiding herself along the way in life...but I was rather surprised that she said she wanted to sleep in her room.

DS is 4.5 and recently left our bed. Have to say - DH and I were relieved. Many many co-sleeping challenges with him. Recently, DH was out of town for a week - and DS came to sleep with us the night DH came back -- that night, DS threw his head back in his sleep and hit me in the mouth splitting my lower lip . . .blood everywhere . . . . . this is a good example of the kind of things we contended with all these years . . . . so, we are glad he wants his own bed now!

No "movers" here yet! My oldest is on the verge of turning 9 & he still choses to sleep with us. He doesn't seem anywhere near ready to leave either.

my dd (3 1/2) moved into her own room shortly after dd2 was born. She told me flat out that daddy snores too loud and the baby cries too much, so she will just sleep in her own room now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"> DD2 is 5 mo old now and dd1 is still sleeping in her own room<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> but I'm also proud of her that she is so grown up and brave!

Meredith, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED W/ DD!!!! LOL LOL<br><br>
Now when DS wakes to nurse she actually trots into our room and says..."Mommy he wants your milk, get up!"

we have a 3 1/2 yo and a 2yo that both still sleep with us. I know it is a big comfort to our 3 1/2 yo b/c she wakes up often and somewhat disoriented. It is a lot easier for her to get back to sleep knowing that Mom and Dad are right there.<br>
Our 2yo has been moved to his own bedroom during the night on occasion and he will sleep right on through being moved and placed until about 5 am when he slips back in with all of us pretty quietly.<br>
I wonder if the both of them will migrate to their room when we do have another. I kinda hope so. I don't know if I'd get much sleep with 3 of 'em in there with us.

When we moved into OUR first house, DS, then around 2yr., did the same thing. I guess he liked the idea of there being a room and a bed just for him. He started sleeping in his own room ( which is directly accross from ours ) and also weaned himself at the same time. It did come as a big shock at first, but it also seemed like the natural progression of things. We use to travel a bunch and DS would and does still sleep with us then.

that's too funny <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> we recently had another baby and have had no movers yet. We bought our older child (3) a twin bed and asked him if he wanted it in his room or ours and he choose our room (I was glad, I'll be sad when I don't wake up to his peaceful sleeping face)
