What do I do with a child that won't sleep in his bed for whatever reason? Last night he was in our bed at 11:30, 2:30, 3:30 (each time he was promptly taken back to his own bed) and finally at 5 I made him a pallet on the floor! He won't sleep in his bed! I sure hope this is a phase and won't last very long. But it's been going on for about 2 months now. My body can't take the lack of sleep and torture that comes with a rowdy 2 year old bed bug. Mr. Coffee is working overtime this morning.
