I have two daughters a 2 year old and one that recently turned 5. Both my daughters share the same room and each have their own bed. My 2 year old has no problem sleeping in her own bed but lately my 5 year old has been crying to sleeping with me and my husband on our bed almost every night. I’ve sat down with her and asked her on why she feels this way but she always tears up and just says “I want to sleep with you” some nights I’ve woken up to her sleeping at the end of my bed. She’s fine sleeping on her bed around nap time in the afternoon but as the sun starts to go down and it’s nearing bed time she starts to tear up and continually tell me she doesn’t want to sleep on her bed and would rather sleep with me. My husband and I don’t have a big bed so I’m often squashed and don’t get a proper sleep when my 5 year old joins us. Has anyone been through this and how did you get your child to sleeping back on their bed?
