  • omg my 3yr old son had this problem! he just broke free of this about 1 1/2 month ago...we just kept getting up no matter how tired and put him back in his own bed saying this is your room,your big boy bed and toys , mommy and daddy have there own room and bed and eventually it worked it took 2 months! but now he stays in his bed or at least room...he has a scheduled bedtime for 8-8;30pm and wakes up anywhere from 6am - 730am.

  • I told my DD the summer before she started Pre-K, that if she didn't sleep in her own bed, I would go to school and tell all her friends that she still slept with her mommy. She got in her bed that night and has never been in mine since.

  • This is specifically why we never co-sleep! You'll just have to get up and put him in his bed.

  • Lock your door at night.

  • Try telling him that youll read him a stroy if he stays in bed all night, if that doesn't work then do what Lauren1990, said. thats bound to work too. at some point. I mean since you already have the night light thing in control.
