  • Two is a tough age to get them out of your bed. Probably I'd just start mentioning casually that pretty soon, they'll need to sleep in their own bed. You can even tell them that until you go to bed that they'll have to sleep in their own bed, but after that they can come to your bed as usual. At a different age, I'd probably suggest firmly leading them back to their own bed every single time.

  • I would say get him/her in thier own bed asap. i made the mistake twice and now they are 5 and almost 8 and they are having trouble sleeping alone. Have you tried the "SuperNanny" technique? Be strong!!

  • My daughter did that around that age and she just eventually grew out of it. Nothing we tried worked.

  • My daughter had been sleeping in her crib since 4 months old. Well, she was sick in early May and so I let her sleep in my bed, because I wanted to monitor her fever.........she's still in my bed. I figure she won't want to sleep with Mama forever and I'm just going with the flow. She is getting a new bed for her 3rd birthday, so maybe that will make her want to go back into her room. We'll see.
