My daughter is nearly 2, and has been in a toddler bed for a couple months. She still gets out and comes downstairs when she should be napping, or comes into our room in the middle of the night. She gets put back in bed, and then if she comes out again, she goes into her crib (which she does not get out of). When she comes into our room at night, she crawls in bed with us, but does not sleep- she tries a little, but ends up wanting to play.
My husband thinks she should be scolded when she gets out of bed at night, but I don't think it's a scold-worthy offense. I just tell her, "No Lily- go back to bed" and "Stay in your bed or you're going in your crib".
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Do you think I should scold her for getting out of bed at night?
(New baby is coming in January, and would like to have the crib...)
