Our almost 3 year old daugther (she turns 3 14th August) will not stay in her bed all night.
She goes to bed fine, falls asleep but if/when she during the night she comes straigh into our bed.
We tried being hard on her and taking her back to bed but after 2 weeks of no sleep I gave up. I'm also 14 weeks pregnant and really need my sleep.
I've now put a mattress on the floor next to my side of the bed so when she comes in I put her straight on that and she stays there all night and only comes into our bed when our alarms go off which is fine.

I'm just not sure where to go from there. We all sleep fine now but she really needs to stay in her bed. We've got 5 months to fix this and I need advise.

There is no reason why she comes in our bed. Her bedroom os warm, cosy, clean, has a nightlight and she loves her little pony covers and sheets.

When we ask her she gives no reason and says she's not scared but just wants to sleep with mummy.

It all started 4 months ago when I went away one weekend and hubby let her sleep with him....needless to say I blame him wink.gif

Any ideas advise????

I know this is no help but it's quite cute that she wants to be with you.

I'd try implementing a reward chart for every night she stays in her bed. Either that or put a lock on her door!

(& of course it's DH's fault biggrin.gif wink.gif )
