Sleeping with the door open? *Added Questions*
How old were your kids before you let them sleep with bedroom doors open. Our first night in the new apartment (3-4 days ago) my DH had to run to our old apartment to get a load, and was running behind bedtime, I decided to go ahead and lay DS down for bed without his nightlight, it was wayyy to dark. So I just left the doors cracked (DS & DD's they both didnt like the pitch black, and I couldnt blame them) and I sat on our bed until DS was asleep and shut his door, along with DD's. Tonight DS asked me if I could leave his door open, he has his nightlight, so I told him not tonight. And he was fine with that. Now let me say my DS is almost 3, but has never ever gotten out of his toddler bed without first calling me through the baby monitor to ask. It's just what's he has done since the first day in his toddler bed. We normally have locked baby gates, but as I said we just moved in and havent had the time to install them yet, with DH working and us trying to move, tomorrow we are putting them up. And my DS doesnt open doors either unless I'm in the bathroom then he magically knows how. Lol
For those who's kiddos doors are open.
Do you use a baby monitor?
Do you have pets?
Is your home 1 or 2 stories?
How could/would these change your decision?
How old are your children?
