John's been sleeping in his big boy bed (a twin bed with bed rail) for about a month and a half now. Today, he realized he could get out of bed on his own. He did it at naptime which wasn't a BIG deal as I was on my way to get him up anyway. Unfortunately, he then did it twice at bedtime which was much more distressing. Apparently, my unhappiness was apparent to him and he did not try again after his second return to bed. But who knows what the future will bring. He has a tendency to wake up in the middle of the night and think it's time to get up. He's also been trying to get up at 6AM recently, but I leave him in bed long enough to get in a shower. I'm afraid he's going to be jumping out of bed and wandering around in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Does anyone have any thoughts or advice?
