Sleeping in my bed

My two year old wakes in the middle of the night and wants to sleep in my bed. We actually let her for a little while. Lately I take her back to her room and then i sleep on her floor..... We are both tired in the morning. Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to keep her in her bed??

I had the same problem with my son having his day naps in our bed. i couldnt get him to sleep in is cot during the day. in the end i had to use tough love and let him cry. i left him for 5 mins, then went back and settled him then left him for 10 etc. the first few days were really rough but by day 3 he was in his own bed. i used to hang the washing out or some other outside chore while he was crying so i couldnt hear it as much??

I feel for you. We are going through the same thing with our 2 year old. It actually started about 6 months ago. Every now and then he will sleep all night in his bed. but they are few and far between. I am getting ready to go and have some surgury at the end of the month and this is one thing about my toddler I am afraid of.
