  • I think you just have to tough it out for a few nights and keep putting her back in her bed. I saw an episode of that nanny show where a child kept getting out of bed. The mama just kept right on putting her back in bed. But the mother couldn't talk to the child at all or even make eye contact. Sounds harsh, I know, but it worked. Just pick her up and put her back in. It took over an hour but the girl on the show got the hint and stayed in bed.

  • Lock your bedroom door. If she knocks on it to get in bed with you...tell her to go back to her bed.

  • Put a gate up in her doorway. I wouldn't lock your bedroom door and leave her to roam the house at night... I used a gate with my son and let him cry it out if he cried. He didn't always go back to his bed, sometimes he slept on the floor lol but he eventually did stay in his bed
