Our boy comes and plonks himself in between my husband and I each night

I have a 2 1/2 year old boy who comes into my bed each night & plonks himself in between my husband & I. He moves around quite a bit and we don`t get a very comfortable nights sleep. How can we get him out of this? Julianne

Answer: Hi Julianne, The MOST important thing is that when he goes to bed initially at night that he falls asleep in his own bed and on his own so when he wakes later he is exactly where and how he went to sleep. Let him know it`s not ok with you that he gets up (some children don`t know this) and you need to keep putting him quickly and quietly immediately and just let him know it`s time to sleep and leave. It`s probably going to be quite a battle and only you can decide if it`s worth it. Cheers, Maree
