  • My son is 4 and still does that some nights. Problem is, I don't notice until I get up for the day and he is there. I talk to him every morning about he needs to stay in his bed not come in ours, but he just doesn't get it or doesn't care! It isn't that I mind so much, he falls asleep in his own bed every night and just comes to ours in the early morning, but my husband hates it and he can't be doing this for much longer, he is just too big!!

  • my son does the same thing. to get him to stop coming into our bed, I go with him into his bed sometimes (he has a full size bed). I know he is getting older, but i know his wanting to snuggle with me won't last forever:) I say enjoy it as long as you want, mama- I know I will:)

  • DS does it too sometimes...Dh is working nights right now, so when he gets home, he takes DS back to his room. But when he's not on nights, we let DS stay. DS usually goes to DH's side of the bed first, and DH loves to snuggle with our babies as much as I do. =)

  • My daughter does this all the time- at 2 a.m. and then 5 a.m. At 2 I take her back to her bed, and she goes right to sleep. When she comes in at 5 I just let her stay until it's time to get up. After all, she's not going to be little forever and want to do that forever, right?

  • Trust they will get to an age where sleeping with you is just not the in thing to do. My son does it every now and then and he is two. His pillow pal is our dog ( I hate it but he is two and it works) so as long as the dog id there and nothing scares him he stays in his room. But my husband was a 5 year kid who slept with his kids he says it was kindergarten that made him need to be with his parents too many kids telling crazy stories. We will see!

  • My son is 4 years old and always gets up when my dh gets up. He will then run down the hallway and jump in bed and sleep till I get up.
