  • put handle covers on his door knob so he will quit getting out of his room and keep putting him back to bed

  • Door knob covers and or a baby gate. My oldest was an escape artist for a while. We would find him sleeping in the darnedest places, and in our bed. Luckily, it stopped as quickly as it had started.

  • My 3 yo does that once in a while too. I CAVE though. I'm too tired to walk her back so I let her sleep with us. LOL My mom says I'll regret it. It's rare though.

  • We have my 20m old in her own room. We skipped the toddler bed & just put her in a twin bed, the mattress & box-spring is in the floor. We also have the bed-rail. Personally, I am way too paranoid to use door knob covers with the bed-rooms so we use a baby gate. And we also still use the baby monitors. It works out better for us cause we can hear her before she actually gets up. The twin bed is a plus to us because if/when she gets up at night we can just lay with her until she falls back to sleep. And I'll tell the truth....LOL, I have been so tired that I have fell asleep in her bed with her.

  • baby gate across the door

  • yeah, try putting up a baby gate in his doorway.that should hold him in his room .Just make sure his room it toddler proof. So he doesn't get hurt or gets to anything and breaks it.
