Let me preface by saying that yes, I know I'm over thinking, and yet...
DS will b 21 months when LO is born. He currently sleeps in the bedroom right next to ours. LO will spend the first month or two in our room but I found that I slept poorly when DS was in our room (I woke up with every baby sound, even though DS was sleeping happily) so I plan on moving LO into his own room pretty young.
When LO moves into his own room, he will get DS' crib, and DS will move into a big boy bed with a rail. So here's the question: should we set up a new room for DS - with his new bed etc and have LO move into the 'baby room'? Or one day just move all the 'baby things' out of DS' room and into the new one?
If we set up a new room for DS he can get used to it slowly (have both set up for a while and he can 'play' in the big boy room) - but he might feel like the baby stole his room and stuff.
If we keep DS in his room then one day it'll be 'baby' and the next it'll be 'big boy' with no transition time. Also it would mean LO is a little further away from us.
Thoughts? Anyone navigated this and has advice? How much transition time is really needed?
