    Default Help! Toddler won't stay in bed

    Anyone have any tips? DS1 has started getting out of bed and it's driving us crazy. The only thing we are trying (that isn't working) is putting him back over and over again without saying a word. He just screams his head off!!

    Could you lie with him until he is asleep?

    DH is in there now. It's been 1.5 hrs! He was in there last night too. We just can't do it every night.

    How old? My nephew is 3.5 and my brother and SIL have just started a rewards system if he goes to bed and doesn't get out. Theirs is money (only 50c a night) so he can work towards buying some thing he wants.

    It's working for them but might not for you depending on age

    He is 2.5, great idea but I don't think he would understand at this age.

    Is he still napping during the day? Could he just not be tired?

    He is actually but I thought it was more related to being in a new big bed.

    Is he getting out of bed and coming out of his room?

    When we moved DD to a big bed she did this, but we just put a gate on her door and let her play on her own. She'd often fall asleep on the floor and we'd pop her in bed. She started putting herself back to bed soon enough.
