Why is my toddler getting up at night & squishing into bed with me?

He's been a pretty good sleeper, but he's been doing this for over a week now, seemingly out of nowhere. A couple of times I've tried to put him back in his room, but most nights I just let him co-sleep. He's not crying, just getting up, walking into our room, and literally stuffing his blankies into my face & squishing next to me.

  • My dd was doing that for a few weeks but then she stopped. My guess is that ds just wants some snuggle time or might not want to sleep alone anymore or is afraid of the dark. I put a nightlight in dd's room and it worked great. I still have to stay by her bed though until she's asleep. Its a security issue with her but I'm ok with it. She sleeps the whole night in her bed.
