need adive.

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

I have a three year old little girl that go to be at around 8 - 8:30. She starts off in her own bed but sometime in the mid of the night she ends up in bed with me and her dad. She don't wake me up so I don't know if she is having bad dreams or if she just gets scaried of something. Anyone have any ideas how to get her to stay in her own bed. Thank you

Sounds to me that shes doing the exact thing my three year old is doing, which is sleep walking. If you notice her in your bed in the middle of the night just put her back in her bed. Be careful not to wake her though if you catch her doing the sleep walking, I've been told it can be bad if you do. My daughter has woke up in the middle of the night and she has come into our room, the living room and even her seven year old brothers room to sleep.

i had a child with the same result. pleas jessica dont take this personally but if you lie down beside her untill she falls asleep you get her in the habbit of that aswell and then apart from her waking through the night you will also have to put her to bed and stay there untill she falls asleep everynight. when she wakes at nite an comes into your room try and give her a hug and a kiss and reasure her everything is alright an send her back to her room although you may have to put her into her own bed for the first couple of times. once you reasure her dont talk to her only to say no hunnie its bedtime now unfortunatly theres no quick fix, but after a while she will wake up less and less.

if she is having bad dreams buy her a dream catcher and explain to her that it takes all her bad dreams away that also works. Or if you tell her to ask her gaurdian angel (if you believe in angel) to take away the bad dreams or to help her sleep youd be amazed how well these actually work

goodluck on gettin a full nights sleep

Maybe try taking her back to her own bed and lying there with her a few minutes until she falls asleep again. I do allow my kids to climb into bed with us if they come through during the night, but this doesnt happen regularly. Unless it is becoming a problem, I wouldnt worry too much about it. She probably just wakes up during the night and needs a bit of a cuddle.
