How do I get my 2 year old to sleep on her own bed? She refuses to and jumps into our bed, which is affecting mine and DH's relationship.

Thanks

Read up on rapid return. My friend did it & it worked for them. You may have to do it a 1000 times but soon the message will be clear .....

We used a gro clock and rapid return if needed.

Dd co slept right up until 2 so we made a huge fuss of turning her cit into abed, choosing new pjs and duvet etc them explained it all.

We sat in her room until she's almost drifted off and then brought her back to bed in the morning until her 'sun was up'.

It took a couple of weeks but she's been in her own bed, sleeping through, since then

Thanks! We tried the rapid return but my DD was in hysterics and screamed and screamed for a good few hours. I'm hoping she will get the message ...

We sat with ours until they fell asleep in their own bed.

Iggly, I'm pleased to hear that worked for you. What happens when your child wakes up night? Or does he or she not wake up?
