  • Well, I have heard that you have to get up and keep taking her back to her bed it might take a few sleepless nights but I hope they will get it for your sake Good Luck!

  • that's the problem. i don't ever hear her come into my bed, or climb up. Should i take her back to bed when i wake up to go to the bathroom?

  • You can opt to take her back when you wake could also opt to set up a place on the floor by your bed (out of the way) and see if you can transition her out that way. Has she always slept in your bed or is this new?

  • Set up a blanket on the floor out of the way. Tell her that if she wants to sleep in your room, she can sleep in that spot.

  • My 3yr old does the same thing I am also expecting and due in Sept. I also don't notice when she comes in at night but when I wake up to go potty I take her back to her bed and if I notice her I tell her she is a big girl and that she needs to sleep in her own bed so I walk her back to her room and I have to do this about 2 times but every other night.
