with his toys. Im not sure what to do at this point bc he is very cranky throughout the day and just wont listen to a thing i say. What do i do? He has a box of toys, should i put the box in my bedroom while he sleeps? Either way its not going to prevente him from getting up in the middle of the night bc sometimes he goes and turns the tv on. Yes, he knows how to turn the t.v on lol. He is almost two. I caught him last night and he had all his blankets off the bed and pillows, idk know what he was even doing. He doesnt cry when he gets up like this either, he just goes about and does his own thing. Im worryed bc what if he trys to go outside one night???

I deadbolted my doors so you would need a key to get either in or out. My dd took a walk one day when I was sleeping so... Idk if I have any other advice. My dd slept pretty well. Hopefully someone will have a good idea for you.

Hopefully, it will pass....you could check with your drs....and I would say keep your doors locked and make sure to take out the keys.

 Oh wow, he can unlock the doors! Can you buy those things you put on the doors so he can't turn them. To baby proof them. He might not be able to figure that out. You can buy them at Walmart or any place they sell baby things.

Buy something like this http://www.qvc.com/Swann-WindowDoor-Magnetic-Alarm-Search-Results.product.E253354.html?sc=E253354-SRCH&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-5-_-E253354&catentryImage=http://images-p.qvc.com/is/image/e/54/e253354.001?$uslarge$

and install them on your doors. That way when he opens it an alarm will sound and you'll know he's up and on the move =)

He does all this at night but yes that's a good idea since he will be more tired at night. I'll try that.

Lol i should've explained that a bit more. It's going to be mayhem for the first day or 2 with him not being allowed to take a nap but hopefully he'll be worn out enough to get back on track. :) good luck!
