So a few nights ago we took ds (2.4years) cot sides off and he is now in toddler bed. What a nightmare! he just keeps coming out of his room every 30 seconds like it is some hillarous game. last night I sat at the top of the stairs returning him quitely to bed for bloody hours and tonight here I am again- I must have returned him 50 times already! any words of wisdom out there from my fellow mumsneters?

What about a stair gate on his door?it might not be as much fun for him then.

I am thinking stair gate myself this very minute! I do think he would just scream at the gate though and drive his dd (age 5) absolutely mad!

Well, yes, possibly grin.

We're doing this tomorrow - eek. DH is off to the shed to get the stair gate in a moment.
