since we're expecting a new baby early next summer, we've been pushing Keegan to sleep in his toddler bed. it became more of a priority when i learned that he learned how to climb out of the crib. he hadn't hurt himself yet, but i didn't want to take the chance.

we've been a few weeks in the toddler bed and for the most part, its not too bad. he falls asleep by himself in there most nights (without me having to sit in the room with him) but it seems that every single morning, at 5a he feels it's a great time to get up and play.

now if he played in his own room, that wouldnt be as bad. but he feels the need to come into our room, play with our cell phones, wake up his brother, torture the cats, pull things out of the refridgerator, etc. is there anyway we can encourage him to stay put in his bed at least until 7? FYI: he has a strict bedtime of 7p every night, but with the holiday's, he's been staying up later, and still getting up before sunrise

We put a baby gate up in the door jamb outside his door.. My son will get up and open his door, but he can't get out because of the gate. I'm just hoping that the baby gate works until I can teach him the clock and that he has to stay in until a certain time, or maybe a light on a timer, has to stay in until the light comes on. Something like that.

I like the baby gate idea! My twins are soon moving to toddler beds and I've been wondering how I can keep them in their room also. Thank you!
