My son climbs into my bed in the early hours of the morning, 3 or 4 am. How do I get him to stop? I don't wake up most of the time as he has learned to be pretty stealthy knowing he will get put back into his own bed.

Thank You All for your comments and I do agree that there is really not much you can do and frankly I am with most of you and I enjoy it most of the time. I am sure that he will stop on his own and he wont still do it when he is fifteen! lol... Thanks again you have all been helpful ;)

I can't tell you how to get him to stop because my 5 year old still does it! She will go to sleep in her bed but every morning I wake up with her next to me! I accepted it and actually I like waking up and seeing her, well I like her waking me up asking me to turn on the TV!! LOL!! She is only 32 pounds but when she finally starts growing ( I have my fingers crossed it will really happen) I don't know how much joy I will find in it!!! :)If you find a way to do it PLEASE let me know!!!

The only thing I did (if you can't lock your door or there's) is to put somehing noisy where he will have to step while walking or climbing to your bed. It could be a toy, crinkly paper, a cardboard box he would have to pick up to get by it. On the note of cardboard boxes, you can leave one on the floor below your door handle so it will drag on the carpet or flooring and make a noise as the door is pushed open. Food for thought though, if it the cuddle time is filling a need in your child and not causing any problems for/between you and your husband, it might be worth filling him up with that love while your sleeping. I have also found with our kids that scheduling the/a night when they know they get to sleep there (on the floor with blankets) seems to help them obey our rule of 'staying out' more often. Hope that helps some or at least heads you in a good direction. Bye

I wish i could help! But atleast know your not alone, my son does it almost every night also.. Around the same time and i usually notice when i have a foot in my face or my husband is complaining theres no room. People have told me to be consistent and keep putting him back in bed but he cries the moment i try to move him and lets be honest, who wants to when your that tired?? I also have a 6mo old daughter and i dont want him waking her with loud schrills.. I think, eventually it will stop? If hes like 15 then we have a problem! But it is still SOOO uncomfy so whatever advice you get im using too ;)

If he doesn't wake you up and it's not a problem then I would just let him continue. If he needs that couple hours of cuddle time with mom and can get it while he's sleeping then good for him. Just my opinion.
