So I have a little boy that will be 2 in November and he won't stay in his bed. we had transitioned him to a big boy car bed and he slept great in it all night for the first 2wks and ever since then he has claimed our bed and I have tried numerous things like sticking with a bedtime routine,turning out lights and tvs, even laying in his bed with him to help him fall asleep, and the cry it out method. please help these past few months have been terrible for comfort in my own bed.
Could you put a baby gate across his bedroom door? Leave his door open a crack so that you can hear him if he really needs you, otherwise, he'll have to stay in his room.
i've tried that his room is straight across from ours. when i did the cry it out method that everyone has talked about but he gets himself so worked up that he wont stop screaming. i just dont know what to do?
Maybe it was too soon for the big kid bed. Can you try putting him back in the crib for a few nights to see if that helps?
it's in storage but he has a mini foldout couch that he sleeps on sometimes..
thanks:) yeah Jen, the reason he is in a big boy bed is because he was climbing out of it and i was worried he would hurt himself.
Easttexasmommy, he moves a little in sleep but there are nights where he is tossing and turning. the problem with getting a bigger bed is that there isnt a whole lot of space in his room. I will have to try to see if i can work something out to help him sleep better and in his own bed. thanks:)
Our son did the same thing. We put a gate across his door and that did help until he figured out how to open it... It got to the point that I had to call off work several times because I could not get any sleep. It sucks, but just keep making him go back to his own bed. You don't want him to think it's ok to sleep with you all the time. I think our son just grew out of it. I want to say it was about 6 months total from when it started to when he stopped getting up. Just stick with it and you'll sleep soon!
