  • My life experience, and my MIL with an ECE degree, say: Let a sleeping child lie. If you can, without waking him, move him to his bed. He may just be out for the night.

  • Bed time in my house is 7:30... personally I'd let him sleep, especially if he is coming down with something.

  • I wouldn't wake him. Let him sleep. If you carry him to bed will he wake up? I would leave him on the couch until I went up to bed. Enjoy the peace and quiet!

  • His bed is the top bed of a bunkbed so getting him to bed without waking him too much would be hard ( see the pic by the sn that is him )

  • my kids go to bed at 830 so if I let them go to bed that early they will be kinda up really early so I usually wake mine. But if they are coming down with something then I don't normally wake them

  • He woke up to go potty and went to my bed...thank god he went potty first, lol, so I'm hoping he stays there for the rest of the fear is he will wake up at midnight wide awake
