Whenever they wanted to stop on their own

I used to lay down with my daughter until she fell asleep deep enough to where I could leave and go to my room. But now I’m the problem and sleep in her bed :joy:

Hmmm maybe let her “design” her own bedroom. Give her an incentive to start sleeping in her own room. Lay in bed with her and let her fall asleep next to you and then leave once she’s asleep

Nurture that! Because one day she won’t want to sleep by you anymore BUT when she’s an adult and comes home with her own family you’ll wake up every once in a blue moon and there she’ll be fast asleep by your side. Your boyfriend will live lol

My 14 yrs old still wants to sleep on the couch at the end of my bed or on the couch with the dog in the living room. He won’t sleep in his own room alone. He has a loft bed. Let me know when you figure out how to get them to sleep alone…

My daughter was scared to sleep by herself so I made some monster spray and we made it fun by going around the house spraying it under her bed and around the house. and she wasn’t scared to sleep in her bed anymore .

I went through the same thing with my oldest she was five and my boyfriend was not happy she had been asking us for a hamster so we told her the only way we would get her one was of she slept in her room with him and she did I didn’t think it would work but it did

But I had to put her mattress on the floor next to my bed and slowly move it to her room first every night we moved the bed farther and farther away till she was in her room then she got her hampster

My brothers are 11 and 13 and still sleep with my mom!

Mines 3 but we brush her teeth and read a book then i sit outside her room till shes almost asleep. Just start your own routine it wont happen overnight but just stick tour routine

I told my daughter that I’d she slept in her own bed on her own for a week straight we’d take her bowling. First night was a little rough but after that it was so easy and it worked and she’s been sleeping in her own bed since January

my son is 9 and sleeps with me

My co slept until about 4. I started by laying with her in her bed until she fell asleep. If she woke up in the middle of the night looking for me. Id walk her back to her room and repeat. Then i started playing wave sounds on her tv on youtube and putting the timer on the tv saying prayers and walk out…let her fall asleep to the sounds. She always falls asleep within 30 minutes. I noticed it helps drown out other sounds that might distract her in the house and keep her up.

My girls are 5 and 9 and they sleep with me when dad works overnight. If he’s home they sleep in their bed. My son is 15 and climbs in every now and then. I guess it all depends on what you and dad are comfortable with.

My oldest got in her own bed while I was pregnant with my second child, at about 3. Then my second went into the crib at 8 months when I found out I was pregnant with my third. Both times they Transitioned they’re bed and crib were in my room close by now my daughter sleeps in her own room adjacent to my room by herself.

I’m confused… since when did this go from a nail page to a parenting page…
