From when my nephew was first brought home from the hospital, he slept in the same room as someone else. His crib and baby bed was in his parents room. As he got older he moved in the room with his older sissy Makayla and they had bunk beds. Recently they moved into a new home and decided at 7 years old, he was old enough to have his own room. He was excited at the idea of it, but when it came closer to bedtime, he started missing his sissy. From what his mommy told me, she was having trouble keeping him in his own room.
That is why when I heard about Dream Pets, I thought immediately of Elijah.
Dream pets helps to promote sleep independence.
