When my son started waking up several times a night, I used the Supernanny approach. My son was climbing out of the crib, so we moved him into a toddler bed at 17 months. Prepare yourself to get very little sleep for about a week to do this. Every time my son woke up, I silently put him back in his bed, tucked him in, and left the room and stood in the hallway . No words, no lights, no noise, no hugs, no kisses, no attention other than putting him back in bed. The first night it took about 50 times! It was less and less each night until it stopped because he gained nothing from doing it and learned to settle himself back down. He woke up later each night and fewer times as well (about a dozen the first night and once or twice at the end of the week).

I feel your pain. Mine gets up twice to three times a night. Sometimes he gets up and doesn't go back to sleep for a while. With two other school age kids this kills me! He has been getting up out of bed and coming into my bed around 3. IF I can "wake" up before he does and catch him I will put him back into his bed, but last night he climbed in without me even noticing. I really wish I had some answers for you. I am going through the same thing and it seems a lot of moms of 20 month olds are too. Maybe its the age?? Good Luck
