I have a little issue, that I know my not seem an issue but it is slightly bugging me.
Over Christmas Baba got a brand new bed, not a toddler bed, but a proper full size single bed, and he loves it. As we were getting a new bed we knew that his Auntie was buying him a train table so rearranged all of his room so that finally some toys could go up there, due to my lounge looking like an extra from the ELC shop!
As soon as he saw the room he loved it, he actually shouted ‘WOW’ when he first saw it. We knew it was the right thing and that it was a hit from the beginning.
My issue is this since changing his room, we have only had one night where he has remained in his own bed. At some point in the night and I am not sure when because neither Mr L or I notice this happening! He crawls into bed with us. We just seem to wake up in the morning with a child in bed with us.
Now this bugs me, there was one thing I was always strict on, I never wanted him sleeping with us, obviously apart from when he was ill. Until now we have managed that and it is bugging me because I don’t know how to stop this. As we don’t know when he is coming into our bed.
I am not even sure whether it is a conscious act for him, or whether he is sleepwalking but I want it to stop. I don’t want to put another gate on his door, as that would be going backwards we took the gate of his bedroom over Christmas but have not used it since the summer time really. So I am a bit stumped to say the least.
Yes I know that it is lovely, but I want to have my own bed. I don’t want Baba in it every night, for starters it isn’t big enough. I end up being squished between Baba and Mr L that is not fun. I would just like him to stay in bed all night, without climbing into bed with me.
Do any of you have any ideas? Is this just a phase? Any thoughts would be appreciated as am completely stumped here. Thanks
