My 4 year old and almost 3 year old keep getting up in the middle of the night to sleep on my floor..

I'm not sure what to do about it. They've always slept in their own beds and had no problem. They fall asleep just fine in their own beds but sometime around 3am they both get up and bring their pillows and blanket and fall back asleep on my floor. How can I break this habit??

  • They like sleeping close to mom. I think that is sweet.

  • we have a family bed so we dont have this problem, sounds like your kids are missing you in the night

  • Return them to bed. Keep doing this. Reassure them and kiss them goodnight. Tell them thay have to stay there until morning light.

  • We just let our 4 yr old sleep in our floor, he's happy and I'm not sharing my bed.
