My daughter has always been a good sleeper. She slept in a bedside crib when she was an infant, then I moved her to her crib, then we turned her crib into a toddler bed. All things were looking good but recently, she had been finding her way to our bed in the middle of the night. Where did I go wrong?
Unfortunately, I think no matter how good of a sleeper your child is it’s inevitable that they most likely will find their way to your bed and want to stay there! Well, I am nipping this in the bud right now because that is just not going down!
I decided to go back to the basics as when she was a baby. Sometimes I used to sleep on her floor just so she would know I was right next to her. Guess what, that worked! After a week or two she didn’t cry when I put her down to sleep. So maybe this tactic will work again.

The past few weeks she has been waking up and instead of letting her get in our bed, I take her back to her room, put her back in her bed and tell her that I am going to sleep on the floor next to her. She agrees and she falls back to sleep maybe after 10 minutes or so. I find my way back to my bed and she sleeps the rest of the night.
I have been doing this for maybe a week now and this weekend she didn’t wake up once! I think my tactic worked as long I keep the faith and stay consistent, victory will be mine and I will get a good night’s rest. If not, it’s daddy’s turn!
