    Nope. No way. Way too young

    And honestly I think it's a bit strange to ask for a 2yo to sleep over (unless you're an aunt or grandparent).

    I don't mean that in a nasty way about your friend so pls don't take offence because none is intended.

    Not at 2, it seems too young. I would have a friends 2yo stay with us if I was asked though. I am a bit of a control freak though 😂 my 3.5yo stays with my Mother fairly regularly & she loves it (as do I) but I wouldn't feel comfortable with anyone else. My DD has slept through since 1yo, so it isn't an issue of being too hard for the other parents, it's just too young IMO.

    Ooh this is a timely post for us.. I haven't read the replies but we're having a 2 year old come to stay this weekend for a sleepover. We have a 2 year old and they are friends, never any behaviour problems. The reason we're having him stay is because our friends have plans and need a babysitter. I can't wait!! I'm hoping it all goes well and both kids have a great evening and sleep well haha! Our friends have said they can always come and pick him up during the night if it's a complete disaster but I'm hoping it will be fine. I think you have to go by each individual child. I'll let you know how it goes after the weekend!

    No I wouldn't unless it was an emergency situation ie hospital trip.

    I'm unsure because my 2yo is on the sensitive side. I'd be inclined to decline but the other mum keeps offering the sleep over and telling how her son would be so happy to have DS there.

    Last time we went to a play date as this friends place said friend didn't want DS there and was clearly upset with DS.
    They are only toddlers and get quite emotional about their toys and sharing etc.
    So I'm very unsure about leaving DS for the night.

    We have no family in Australia so he doesn't even get sleep away at his grand parents etc.

    Anyway I would love some mummy wisdom ☺️
    Haven't read replies

    But IMO, way too young! We also have no family in oz but I don't think my kids are 'missing out' on anything by not having sleepovers..

    Even my very outgoing dd I wouldn't be ok with sending to a friends for a sleepover at that age

    Yep, agree!

    My own 2 year olds were hard enough overnight, I wouldn't want someone else's to stay too. Unless it was an emergency or favour!

    For me it is far too young, but I know people that have had their friends kids sleep over since they were 6months old. I couldn't do it, my two were bad sleepers so maybe that's skewed my view.

    My DD is 2 and I have never considered the idea of her sleeping at a friends house just for fun. It wouldn't be fun because she would hate it! She has only spent a few nights without us and all have been at our house with her grandparents staying over.
    If there was a situation where she had to sleep at her grandparents or my sisters house for babysitting purposes that would be fine but the idea of her spending an night at a friends house for a play date is quite odd to me.
    We have had my nephew who is is the same age as DD overnight a couple of times, both times because my sister and BIL were going to a wedding where they couldn't take him. He was fine and the kids had a great time but it was exhausting and I wouldn't be offering to have him just for the fun of it!
