Re: Re: Toddler Bed Problems


    I had the same problem with both my sons (4 and 1).  My pediatrician informed me it was not abusive to expect them to stay in their own beds, and shutting the door wasn’t either.  So we shut the door to keep out distractions and left them on their own.  Yes, we have withstood many a night of them screaming themselves to sleep, but they eventually understood that the door being shut means time to sleep.  When the oldest got old enough to open the door on his own, we purchased the childlock doorknob covers to keep him put.  A baby monitor can help you make sure he is okay.  This was my pediatrician’s exact advice and it worked for us! ;)
