  • I dont know, but if you figure it out, let me know! I have a 4 year old that's the same way. He makes up all kinds of wild stuff to get out of sleeping in his own bed!

  • She sleeps UNDER your husband? Doesn't she suffocate? Also, "and its 3 yrs and she has been in between us since she can mov to our bed on her own". Does that mean that she has been UNDER your husband for 3 years in your bed & not hers????
    If so, have patience with her. Tell her that she is now a BIG girl & has her own bed. That may not work, just keep trying. Your mistake was to let her sleep with you in the 1st place.

  • I would do a reward chart-if she stays in bed for a week she get a small reward. Or each night she stays in her own bed she gets a sticker

  • i will agree but it is not me is my husband i warned him and constantly told him what would happen. he started it with having her fall asleep on his chest and that was it. she do not suffocate but she sleeps very close to him and and gets up and checks if he still in the bed.she is his first daughter / child you can say he has a son who is 16 with his first relationship that he just found out so i am being patient i even upgraded to a california king

  • My 4 year old is the same way, except she bed hops between me, my SIL, and my MIL (currently living with my in-laws). I tried a lot of things so I am going to bump your post to hopefully get some worthwhile answers!
