Keeping Your Kid in Their Own Bed at Night. Make Your Child’s Room Inviting. Consider allowing your child to help decorate by at the very least picking out the bedding. For the more Consider the Size of the Bed.

To help you with this, here are three tips for getting your kids to stay in their own bed at night. Make Their Room A Place They Want To Be Because many children go through a stage where they’re afraid to be in their own rooms and find comfort with their parents, it can be helpful to make your child’s room a place where they want to be and. If your child shows up in your bed an hour or two before it’s time to get up, putting a digital clock in their room with duct tape over the minutes can help.

Train them to stay in their own bed until the hour shows a seven, for example. Or get a toddler clock that lights up when it’s time to be awake; they may need the help of a visual cue. If your kid gets up, walk them back to bed calmly, tuck them in again and remind them they need to stay in bed.

You can slowly move the mattress further from the bed until you’re no longer in the room at all. Create a sticker chart (for each child you’re trying to teach) and tell your child that any night she follows all of the sleep rules, she gets to put a sticker on her chart.

This means if she stays in bed but keeps yelling for you, she does not get a sticker (because she’s broken rule #3).

Obviously, it would be better if he could be persuaded to settle for a night-light in his room, so that his door could be closed, rather than leaving the door open with a hall light on, which could lead to the problem of him being woken in the night when the baby wakes.

  • A toddler doesn’t understand consequences. This comes around 2/ 2.5 in kids development. Toddler stage starts at 12m or early (as soon as they walk). So much rubbish

  • I put my 2 year old son in a toddlers bed. He was fine the first week, then hell broke loose. He does not like naps or bed time anymore. He screams unless I’m in the bed with him or touching him when I’m on a mattress on the floor. He will fall asleep, then I sneak out.
    I don’t like hearing the distress in his voice. I am so tempted to put cot back up and put him in it again. Should I put him in the cot again?

  • New follow here! Finding your videos very helpful.

    My son turns 2 next week but he is struggling with his cot. Most nights he wakes up from hitting his head on the side or getting his feet stuck in the gaps (very stuck, it takes me twisting and turning to get him out) and I can only get him back to sleep with a bottle. I have tried putting bumpers up but he just pulls them off. Would you still recommend leaving him in the cot until 3 years? If so, how can I stop him from hurting himself? Thank you!

  • Some of you guys need to toughen up, that’s why these kids get away with so much. Consequences are a natural thing and stop making everyone else parent your kids when they grow up just because you want to stay the softy/good guy. This works btw.
