They don't really act like that. They just post it in virtual world to make themselves feel superior.

One is down between two and three and the other is between four and six in the morning. Usually it is not a big deal, I don't even realize they come down. but there are some times I wake up with a foot in my back and can't get back to sleep. Anyone have any strategies for getting them to stay up stairs? Or any idea when this stage will end?
Have to say that we carried them back to their bed immediately, so we did not allow it to happen very often. Now that they have a habit, it may be more difficult. They only suggestions I can suggest would be to add something to their room and make a big production - babies sleep with parents and big kids sleep in their room with what you added - new stuffed animal, pillowcase with name on it, etc. Then, you have to carry them back once you realize it and hope it stops.

We have went thru times when they wouldn't sleep. So, we added some Benadryl at times. We did melatonin on occasion with oldest, but she was older.

Are you keeping it safe by hiding it in the garage?

Congrats to DS.

Weighing in on the kids in bed...as it's been mentioned, every situation is different, and there is no magic answer.

But with us (kids are older now), I found that sometimes they really were scared or had a reason to be in our bed, and other times they seemed to just take advantage of the fact that "they could". It then becomes a routine, and just normal practice if you let it get that far.

We kinda put our foot down, and said enough is enough. New rule - everyone sleeps in there own bed. If you need anything, and it better be a legit reason, then come on in and tell mommy or daddy,
but if you just want to come in, NO!. You have your own bed, and it is in your room.

Every Night we would tuck them in, give them a kiss good night, and tell them we love them. But they had to stay in their own beds.

We also found if we let them sleep with an extra stuffed toy (or a few extra) they'd be happy.

Seemed to work, but we never really let it get to a point where they were SO used to coming over.

On a side note: we have friends of the family, and the mother let her son sleep in their bed as a baby... and he NEVER left... he is about 15 now, and still sleeping in mom's room. Dad NEVER sleeps in that room anymore.

Keep going in babysteps at the new store, trying hard to fend off boredom and a bit of depression from the situation of having nothing to really do. Today helped as my past two managers both called me looking for help on stuff, and finally got some areas to look after. Not my choice of sections, but I'll look after Champagne, French/German/Italian Wine and Coolers. Also got an alarm passcode. All helps me get settled in.

We don't allow the kids to come into our bed at night, but they can come in and hang out in the morning. It works well. If DD is having a tough night we'll go in to her room and sometimes crash in her bed for an hour or so, but she never comes in ours. DS is still pretty young, so keeping him out is easy.

Glad you are settling in, but hate to hear it is not very exciting. Hang in there.

Thanks for the advice guys. About a year ago DW had knee surgery and couldn't do the stairs to put the kids to bed (We have a main floor master and the kids sleep upstairs.). So on nights I had to go to work they slept with her. Once she could do the stairs the problem stopped. Then it started up again in the summer when DD started having nightmares. After that she was in our bed two weeks straight. It got better for a time but now the pattern of them has gotten to where it is now.

I'm definitely going to talk to both of them and see what is bringing them down. I will also do the, "You're a big kid, you don't need to do this anymore." speech. That worked with a few issues when they turned 4.

Funny - that's not the story Seth told me. He said he had to put his foot down with you coming into his room.

He said he had to give you one of his stuffed animals so that you wouldn't be scared.
