my daughter has positioned the baby monitor so she can see when her toddler is in her bed. so the door is shut, and she is lying down. then they watch the monitor. when bub gets out of bed they can speak to her through the closed door, and tell her to go back to bed. little one is wondering how can mum see me through a closed door, but she goes back to bed and eventually falls asleep. no arguments or tantrums . works fine at night, and works pretty much all the time for the day naps as well. marie.
