Do your kids crawl in bed with you during the middle of the night?

I have a two year old little girl and for some reason she's gotten into this habbit about three weeks ago, waking up crying or just crawling into bed with me.

  • YES! My almost 3-year-old transfered from crib to bed without any problems earlier this year, then a couple months ago he started doing this exact thing. Middle of the night, next thing I know, I've got a kid who is shoving his blankets in my face and climbing in. Most of the time I just move and let him sleep there - I'm just too tired to shuffle him back in his room.

  • My dd does...uaually very early in the morning. 5 or 6. Sometimes I dont mind...I like to cuddle...but your right it does become a habit.

    But then again...before you know it, they wont want to be near enjoy it...relax, quit listening to people say they "shouldnt" do this or that and enjoy your little one. :)

  • My DS will wake up sometimes and want to get in bed, but I just take him right back. But when he gets up about 6:30 or 7:00 sometimes I just let him sleep the rest of the morning with us (about an hour).

  • My boys were in toddler beds at 18 months now at 3 I find my twins in bed with hubby and I when we wake up I ask them why did they get in bed with mama and daddy they tell me they had a nightmare which at this age they do get a wild imagination so they do get nightmares.

  • I don't mind it sometimes, because the kids are just so sweet how the like to cuddle with me and want me to hold them. But my boyfriend and I only have a queen size bed. and to be honest I like my space when I sleep. lol. plus it seems like the kids move constantly and sleep horizontally rather than vertically.
