  • my 3 and half year old never sleeps in her bed its almost always on the floor in the middle of all her baby dolls. if the floor is more comfortable for her then so be it, just as long she is in her room. when i got the boys' new beds she wanted a big girl bed also so she has a twin sized bed. she is getting better at staying in her bed though. my boys slept on the floor instead of the bed until they were 4.

  • Haha! Well i will listen to him cry mommy mommy My bed scared me....Or mommy i forgot to wash my hands...Mommy i forgot to go potty... You cant GIVE in!!! No matter how much crying and screaming. My son says tho things to get me in there. The other thing I let him get out of bed is to go potty! But is he ask more than once it is a trick! It sucks. But last night it took two hours. Tonight maybe an hour. So it works. Do what you normally do...Shower story bed. tuck him in tell him you love him and you are right in the other room. If he gets out dont say a work. Pick him up and put him back in bed. Tuck him in. Walk out! . You already said good night and I love you. Who ever is in the house need to do the same thing. I will put him in and my dad will talk to him so he knows to go to pop pop now. So that makes it is a little harder on me. Also dont do it one night and than lay with them the next. Good luck! It is a lot of work
