    Default 2yo climbing out & sleeping on floor

    My 2yo daughter has recently been climbing out of her bed during the night & sleeping on the floor in the doorway to her room. We removed the side off her cot a few weeks ago & she settled well but is now seemingly not happy. Consequently I'm finding her in the morning, cold & curled up into a ball without any blankets.

    Has anyone else experienced this? How do you think I should I deal with this - put the side back on or persist?

    Persist. Check on her during night? Maybe give her a throw blanket she can bring down with her.

    My dd is two and does exactly the same thing. I was picking her up and putting her back into bed, but after endless sleepless night after waking her by moving her last night I left her on her floor. She had a great sleep. At 1 I checked and she had gotten back in bed. I just dress her as warmly as I can and hope for the best!!!

    Thanks guys. She did it again last night. Gave her a blanket but didn't cover herself with it so wasn't much good.

    Someone else suggested that she might be feeling alone (our room is down the hall) & wants to be closer.to us. Maybe I should put a mattress next to our bed? Thoughts?

    If the mattress was next to your bed would she stay on the mattress or climb into bed with you? Maybe she is feeling lonely, I'm at a loss of what to do myself. I think why not try it?

    Get her. Some of those footed onesies in flannelette from kmart or target or big w.
    She will settle, but in the meantime they will keep her warm. I always looked for the footed ones with grip on the foot.

    I've done this tonight. She should be warmer at least. See how we go!
