How do you get a three year old to stay in her bed all night?

My daughter is three and she wakes up in the middle of the night EVERY night and winds up in our bed. Sometimes we don't even realize she is there until we wake up and find her there. She is a wild sleeper and sleeps sideways so me or my husband will wake to her foot in our back or something. Once we realize she is there, one of us carries her asleep back into her own bed. I just don't know how to keep her from coming in every night. Any ideas that worked for anyone?

My daughter used to do this all the time. I reached a point where I ended up putting her old cot mattress next to my side of the bed, set it up with pillows and blankets and she would just crawl in there. Then we all were able to sleep. Is there a reason you need to stop her? They do grow out of it.
