So my daughter is about 2 years and 3 months old. She's been in her toddler bed for quite a bit now. I started off by putting her in bed with me for story time, then letting her fall asleep and putting her in her own bed. This worked great, but didn't want her to get used to it so I started having her lay down in her own bed for story time and asking her to stay there. She usually gets up about 15 times before she stays there, or the last time she gets up she comes to hug me and falls asleep in my arms. She comes up with the silliest reasons to be out of bed. Last night she insisted that she needed to wash her hands! Are there any tricks for getting them to stay in bed or is this just a phase? It doesn't really bug me that she gets up but I won't go to sleep unless I know she's sleeping and it makes it difficult to establish a bed time for her. What do you ladies do?
