Another Bedtime Conversation

Katt - posted on 11/08/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have a little girl who is almost 23 months. She has been in a "big girl" bed for about 2 1/2 months now. At first she did great. She had been always a good sleeper. But lately she keeps getting out of bed when I put her into it. And she does this multiple times. I usually end up putting a gate up at her door. Then after she falls asleep she keeps waking up every two hours on the dot. We do not know why or what is waking her up. Its been happening for the last 2 weeks and its a big change from her sleeping through the night.

Anyone have any advice? We are just tried of waking up 3 or 4 times a night.

i have not ever experienced this myself but the best advice i can give you is to just persevere with it. this unsettlement never usually lasts too long. keep praising her about being such a big girl in her big girl bed. make sure her favourite tv character duvet cover or pillow case is on her bed. as i said i havent had this problem but friends of mine have and they have brought the kids into the bed with them. one of those kids is now 9 and he still sleeps with mum!! Don't give tht habit as it is much harder to break. i hope this helps you please let me know i wud be interested to know as i have 2 that havnt gone through the transition into the big bed yet. best of luck and lots of love
