First Night in Her Own Room

I didn't think this day would come so quickly. It seems like just moments ago Aria was just outgrowing her Moses basket and moving into her travel cot.

But Tom and I felt like it was the right time to try Aria in her own room... Eeek!
Her sleep the past few weeks hasn't been great. She has been waking more than usual, sometimes for an hour or more at a time! So we thought it may be an idea to move her into her own room, hoping that it may settle her a bit more. 

It's safe to say that the first night I was a nervous wreck! We put Aria down in her cot after our usual nighttime routine, and she surprisingly went down without much fuss! I decided to have an early night, just to catch up on some lack of sleep (but also just so I could be a little nearer to her!). 

So as for how she got on through the night, I was pretty impressed! We are trying a couple of new methods at night, after getting some tips from Lisa at The Blissful Baby Expert, so I know it's going to take a few nights before this pays off, but it honestly wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be! 

It has really made me realise how quickly she is growing up, and I know the day will soon be here when we are turning her cot into a bed...argh!
How old were your little ones when you moved them into their own room? How did you feel about it all? 

Thanks for reading
