Thread: My 2 year old won't stay in bed

    Maybe he's grown out of nap-time already?

    There's your answer. Big boys who stay in bed get to move to big boy beds....otherwise...

    Hang in there LC. It's hard, but you need to be impeccably consistent. Giving in (rewarding) randomly is the surest way to reinforce any behavior.

    ......Hasn't that been done already, with a different color tape.




    I just want to know what.............MOMMY SAID!


    Cheers to disciplined children,

    Indeed.

    He's a zombie without an afternoon nap.

    Maybe he needs to go back in the crib for a bit? Or a baby gate on the door, he can get out of bed, but not leave the room?
    He transitioned from the crib to the toddler bed about 4 months ago, everything else is the same - down to his pj's.

    Last night was better. He got up 3x after being put down @ 7pm then 4x @ 4:30am. He must have remembered the trauma of being demoted to his crib the previous night .

    Thanks everyone!

    I would go with that then! Put him to bed, if he gets up put him back, and tell him if he get up again, he will have to sleep in the crib. When he gets up a 2nd time (and I am sure he will) put him in the crib.

    Stick to that a couple of nights, and see what happens.
