Moving my angel?

Good afternoon Prof.
My little girl is going to be two next month. She is still in our room in her cot. She sleeps well - goes to bed at 20:15 and is normally asleep by 20:30 and sleeps through until 07:00 maybe just a little moan or a groan when turning over etc. Now i know we need to move her to her room but have no idea how? We ahave bought the railing for the side of her bed - it is a double bed she will be moving to so we can also pack cusions agains the wall so she will be safe but do we move her cot to her room first so she gets used to sleeping without us or do we just put her straight into her bed? Why i am worried is sometimes in her sleep (or i think she is still asleep) she will say " mama, mama"  and i will reply mommy is here and she will be am i going to to those little things with her in another room? I also peep at her sometimes and cover her feet with a thin blanket and I can hear her breathe. She sleeps in a camp cot so when she wakes in the morning she looks through the mesh to see if we are there immediately and cries if i have already got up and am not in the room. She is in creche all day and it is so nice to have her in our room - do you think we really need to move her? Are we doing her an injustice?

You are not doing your little girl an injustice.You have done well so far and it is now time for her to have her own room.She can move to her own bed as well.Make a big fuss about her being a big girl with her own bed and her own room and she should be very happy to move.. When she goes to bed read to her very evening before she falls asleep.
