    Default 2.5 year old waking all night! HELP!!

    My 2.5 year old DD has started waking every hour to 2 hours overnight and has done every night for the past few weeks. It has started since she can now climb out of her bed and open her bedroom door. She comes straight into our room and I put her straight back in her bed where she settles and goes back to sleep for another hour or so before she is up again. it's driving me insane cos she takes forever to settle when she first goes to bed and then is up all night!! Any suggestions of how to keep her in her own room?? I know it is probably a phase but now that I'm pregnant the lack of sleep is really taking its toll

    My twins have only just gotten over this phase. It lasted about 6 months! We put a gate on their room but they just cried and screamed until we'd come to them. Now they are bigger they climb over it anyway.

    No advice really because they only thing we could do was wait it out, very very frustrating I know!

    When my DS1 started doing this we tried everything! The only thing that worked for us was putting a door handle safety thing on the door knob. This meant he couldn't open it himself but we can. We can still hear him with the monitor. It didn't take long for him to stop waking up once he realised he couldn't get out I have attached a pic of the knob cover thingy. I got it from toys r us/ babies r us.

    Thanks guys - it's worth a shot I think. I wasnt overly keen on 'locking' her in cos she does get up on her own to use the loo but it may be the only option
