How can I get my two and a half yr old son to stay in bed w/o me.

He has been sleeping with me since he's been born, and everynight we go lay in his room and when he fells alsleep I sneak out. He's getting better sleeping all night but more night then few he wakes up and comes get me to lay back down with him, and the cycle continues.

  • I find the Supernanny technique works, first time they get out of bed say it's bedtime darling and put them back in bed. 2nd time just say it's bedtime. 3rd time+ no eye contact, no talking just put them back to bed. You have to stick to it but they will get the point. I did this with DD and now she doesn't get out of bed unless something is wrong.
