    Default Help settle a bedtime argument. . .

    So Lyla has started getting out of bed again after we put her down for the night. She will get on the floor and look under her door and yell random babble.

    Would you go in there and put her back in bed? Or would you leave her to either fall asleep on the floor right in front of her door or figure out that she needs to get back in bed on her own?

    If Aiden is babbling and not upset, I'd probably leave him be. And hope it's a short lived phase!

    I would also leave. I remember sleeping on my parents floor MANY times as a child.. even once as a teenager because my tv was randomly coming off and on and I was freaked out. I turned out just fine.. I never remember being uncomfortable.

    If she's not upset, I'd totally leave her there.

    I'd leave her. Her goal in getting out of bed and babbling is to probably get you to come in there, so if she learns that's not going to happen then she will probably pass through this phase quickly. Also, even if she does end up sleeping on the floor, it's not going to hurt her.

    I agree with all the others. It sounds like she wants you to come in, and if you do, it will continue longer. Let her sleep on the floor, I doubt it will be uncomfortable for her. If it is, then she will move to the bed.

    I'm with the others. As long as she's not upset I'd leave her.

    From experience...

    Crying=go in and settle them.

    Happy and babbling=leave them, they'll go asleep eventually.

    We put a baby gate on DS1's door when he got big enough to open it because he would wonder round the house. But with the gate on he'd just fall asleep in the doorway and I picked him up and stuck him in bed He stopped doing it after a couple of months and just figured it was nicer to stay in bed
