Nobody wants to sleep alone in their own bed except mommy. 99% of the nights, my youngest (3.5 yr) crawls in my bed. I have no idea how to curb this!! I tried a babygate and she will climb over it. If I close the door, she freaks out and bangs on it. There isnt enough room on my floor for a mattress- unless maybe a toddler mattress? She still wants to sleep touching me though- laying on top of me is more accurate. Right now she is standing in the hallway crying 'I want you mommy'. This usually continues until I cave and go to bed with her- but I hate that, because my only 'me' time is after the kids go to bed.
Someone help me!! How can I restore bedtime peace?! I have tried to develop a routine with them, but most of the fights stem from who will be sleeping with who.
I want my bed back!! And a silent night!!
