DD won't sleep in her own bed

My DD, who's almost 3, will not sleep in here own bed at night. She's fine during the day but she wakes up at night and will not go back to sleep unless she's in bed with me. I've tried putting her back in bed when she gets out and laying in her bed with her but it doesn't work. IS this a stage or something else, I never had this much trouble with my son when he was her age. Any help would be great.

 My daughter who will be 3 in march is the same way. I have no problems putting her to bed at night. I read her 2 or 3 stories put them under her pillow kiss her goodnight and turn on her lullabies. But sometimes, well usualy around 3ish she will wake up and come crawl into bed with me (i think its nightmares). If i try to put her in her bed she will throw a fit. I think its my fault thought because when i was pregnant i would let her sleep with me all the time. I dont mind it though, For now anyways. As long as she goes to sleep in her bed at first. Im sure she will eventualy grow out of it. Soooo i have no advice lol.

My daughter who is almost 3 does the same thing. I put her to bed at night, no problem. Then at 2 or 3 AM she comes into my bed. She is usually still asleep kind of, so I let her stay until she is asleep all the way and then move her back into her bed, and she stays there until morning.

My 4 year old is like that, she starts out in her bed, but ends up in ours.

Yep. It can get annoying some times, but we really don't mind.

Have some rules and use a reward system to reinforce good behavior. Ask her to pick one night on the weekend when she can sleep with you and then let her or have it so if she stays in bed all week she will get stickers for each night she remains in bed then as a reward she can sleep w/you in your bed fri/sat night or give her a small treat like a sticker book or a small box of crayons. My friend and sis did this with success; they key is consistency. Good luck!

Thats a good idea I may have to try this. Normally  I don't mind it and I figure she'll probably outgrow it in a few years but once in a while its hard to have any time with the hubby if there's a toddler in the bed. Thanks for the advise!!
