Do you have this???

Q Our 3-year-old son keeps coming into our bed at night. What can we do to stop this without making a big deal of it?

Health Visitor Dawn replies: As soon as your son arrives in your bed, gently take him straight back to his room and his own bed with as little talking as possible. If he needs a cuddle, calming down or reassuring then it's important that you give him this, but wait until you are back in his room before doing so. Let him know that it's time for him to go to sleep now and that his room is a nice place to be.
