    Hopefully this will work when he's a little older!
    Gro clock is great now for DS1 but took until about 3 before I could actually explain it and he understood. Even still when I decided it was time to get tough on it it took 2 days of taking him back to bed if he got up before the sun then it clicked. Now he gets up at 7 am ON THE DOT every morning

    I bought a gate for his room which I used to put on and take off when he first went into a bed. It was a really cheap one from I think bigw. It screws out to the inner most part of the frame so I could still shut the door and it was pretty low so I could easily step over it. Failing that the playpen idea would be my next one.

    Our situation.

    House baby proofed. Unnecessary rooms shut off. Food and TV remote in a highly visible spot so kids zero in on that upon wake up. If they don't end up with us.

    This is a great idea!
    ...Now I'm imagining a trail of snacks going from the bedroom and leading to a decoy pile of toddler treasure (tv remote, mobile phone, blueberries...). Ideally rigged to catch him in a big cartoon net

    We aren't at that stage yet. Two year old is still in the cot.. If he was getting out though I wouldn't hsve a problem co-sleeping. We do it a lot anyway.

    We have a gate that fits in the door frame but doesn't stop the door closing. Here is a pic. Sorry I think it is sideways so tilt your head! It's just the Kmart cheapie gate, I can measure the disc at the end if you want to check if it would fit in that part of the door frame?

    haha, these are the kind of helpful suggestions DH comes up with! Usually something with Velcro and magnets...

    Thanks for the photo @Stretched! By the sound of it, the cheap Kmart/Big W brands might be more suitable, I'd previously only looked at the ones at the big baby shops and found them all too wide. I'll definitely check those out!

    My dh seems to feel bubble wrap would make the perfect toddler alarm. Strewn liberally all over the bedroom and lounge room floor.
