Hi my two year old recently stopped sleeping in his bed and now falls asleep in between his bedroom door and the babygate.. when we take him to bed he wont even attempt to lie down anymore he wont let you give him a kiss goodnight hug or anything and as soon as you leave the room he's at the door. We've tried the constant picking him up and putting him back down but he gets more and more stressed out by it. We are currently just picking him up when hes asleep and putting him in bed but then he will wake up again and it starts again.. Has anybody any suggestions??

My ds was like this, we just chucked a cover over him and left him to it. He's 24yo now and sleeps in a bed, if that's any reassurance! grin

My Ds did this too! Thought he would have been the only one!

I guess they find the bars reassuring.

We put the sides back on his cot bed. Then a few months later removed them and he was fine then. Slept no problems since.

Could you stay with him in his room until he falls asleep?

We ended up putting the side back on ds cot after trying for 3 weeks. He was 26 months. Now at nearly 3.5 we know we've got to move him to a bed & are planning to get brave after Xmas.

At 7 I slept on a beanbag for about a year. Just put a blanket on and leave him to it. At least he's sleeping!

Hes in a toddler bed so cant put any sides up not sure what it is..the fireworks last week started it all off and my partner was off work for two weeks when normally he doesn't see him at bed time thought it might have been him just out of routine but nothing seems to work
