I have a wonderful 2 year old daughter. She does stay in bed all night, but she does not want to stay in bed when put to bed. She is in a toddler bed. We have tried everything to get to to stay in her bed at night. We have elimated naps, shortened naps, and everything else to no avail. This is been going on for about 5 months, I am at my wits end, help, any advice would help at this point. Yes, we do have a consistent night time routine, but it is like she just won't stay in bed, even know she is so tired.Answer Question

I had to close my son door to get him to stay in his room and that worked until he figured out how to open the door. So I got one the door knob locks to put on the inside door knob of his room. It sounds so mean to lock your child in their room but it really does work. every night I would sing to my son then read him a book and say good night. Then I would shut his door until he fell asleep. always open the door in case of a fire. Some nights it would take him 5 minutes to fall asleep and other times it would take 45 minutes. The important thing is to be consistent and patient. Also be sure that your child's room is child proof. Good luck!
