I have a 32mth old son who rarely sleeps in his bed the whole night through. He generally gets up at least once, if not more times a night & comes to climb in bed with me (my DH travels a lot). I've tried taking him back to his bed & reassure him it's fine; but he it doesn't work & we are all losing sleep over it. We even have an automatic light on in the kitchen & have told him he's not to leave his room until the light is off (it's off at 6a). This doesn't seem to work either. Friends have told me to put a door handle lock on the inside of his room, so he can't get out. This just seems unsafe IMHO, plus he's potty trained, so he needs to be able to get to the bathroom. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to keep my almost 3yr old in the bed...I'm ready to have a full night sleep again.
