Daughter climbing out of her cot!!

my daughter will be 2 this month and since she was 6 months old she has had the same routine, she goes to be at 7 every night, and last night she climbed out of her cot and was running around til 3am this morning!! I'm so tired and I have just put her in her cot again for a nap and guess what shes climbed back out of it. My mum said shes ready to have her cot into a bed! Any ideas :S

Tot of rum in her milk......:thumbsup:

yes, she is ready, she needs to know that once she is put into bed she stays there for the night though, can be a taxing time for even the most patient of parents, good luck x

Unless of course you have the mattress on the highest setting, although dropping it once they know the movements to get out is pretty pointless

Cant really comment as my 3rd is a pain in the bottom and wont go in to sleep. I have now left her to scream to sleep for 1 and a half weeks now and still im not seeing much of improvement. If anything we have gone bak as now she wont even settle in the day without screaming for ages. All in all she screams most of the day

she puts her leg over the board and just flings herself out I have watched her do it just now as soon as I put her in the cot!

shes normally so good at going to bed!! But like you and my mum said she must be ready for her own bed so when the OH gets back I will get him to make it up into a bed:thumbsup:

Put a stair gate on her bedroom door - that way if she gets out of her cot she is restricted to the bedroom. Maybe change her cot to a bed as well so that she can easily get back in when she gets bored......

yeah I have it on the lowest setting, I even said to her do you want to go to sleep she said "no" normally its night night mummy! Never thought she would be able to get out of her cot
banned#16
do you have a stirgate on her door, i had this on my daughters door whilst she was in a cot, so it would not be alien to her, so once in a bed she still couldnt leave her room once she was out of bed, although many a time i found her on the floor asleep - lol

i personally would put a stairgate on her door and leave her in a cot for a few more nights, otherwise you are going to changing two things for her, maybe really freak her, put stairgate up for a few nights, then change bed, good luck

Was chatting about this issue with relatives over the w/e - One said their parents put the matress on the floor and turned the cot upside down.... could be worth a try if you're desperate.... although I'm not recommending it.

We had this problem with my twins when they were about a year old . In the end I bought some baby sleeping bags that popper on the shoulders, their legs were together and not able stretch apart wide enough to climb out.!

Deffo needs a bed, my son when he was 18mths started climbing out his cot, so he went into a bed, he was good as gold had no running in and out the bed so i must of been lucky, but previous sons were monkeys when moved into a bed!!

We tried this with both of ours & it worked:

Tell her that when she's put to bed she can stay awake & play if she wants but she's not allowed to get down off the bed/get out of the cot. Ask her what toys she would like to play with, & let her have them, but onl on the bed. Ours would play until they were tired enough to sleep. Although they got off the bed occasionally it was only to sneak more toys onto the bed.

Don't forget to remove the toys that are dangerous to sleep with, though:thumbsup:

my son who is 3 goes to bed at half 6 and our daughter who will be 1 in just over 2 weeks goes to bed at half 7 (she's still being breastfed and starts getting her feed once the wee man is in bed) they both sleep till 7am. he went into a "big boys bed" when he turned 2 and we put a stair gate on is door then did the super nanny thing - when he got up first time you return them to bed your all nicey nicey second time you just say bed time and third time and every time after that you return them to bed without saying anything. took us 2 nights but about 150 trips taking him back into bed for it to work. hard work for that 2 days but totally worth it. Now he goes to bed and sits and tells himself stories from his book he takes into bed with him and 20 mins later he's fast asleep,
good luck with your wee one sleepless nights are horrible

Yup...my daughter is 6 and goes to bed about 8.30....(later if there is no school)...she gets out of bed every two blooming minutes for a drink or a book or a toy...she has been the same way since she was about 2.....oh well...thats what being a mummy is all about......:p


I have to laugh when they say 'daddy can I tell you something' just as you are closing their door. Then when you stupidly ask what, they lay their saying 'errrrr...........?' :giggle:

my daughter used to go to bed at 7 and wake at 7 from nie on birth realy, until the little guy came along and disrupted the entire household, hes 6 now and doesnt go to bed till between 8-9 on a school night and up at 7, tried the earlier and caused to many rows with him continually getting up and roaming round, but when he goes at between 8 and 9 hes asleep as soon as his head hits pillow, so he obviously only needs about 10 hours, where as daughter needed 12, all different

my daughter climbed out of her cot when she was 18 months old. In fear of her hurting herself we put her into a cot bed. It took a week of holding the bedroom door shut and 'control crying' until she realised that going to bed meant just that.
good luck and stick with it. Whatever you do, don't let her in your bed as you'll be stuck with her for the next 3 years!!!
