My 3 1/2 year old daughter has been cosleeping with us since she was just a couple weeks old. All 3 of my children co sleep. But it's getting to the point where I'm being kicked out of my bed. There have been plenty of nights where I just walked across the hallway and slept in my 3 1/2 year olds bed because I literally fell out of my bed. I've tried to get her to sleep in her own bed, she will for a couple hours but then it's right back to digging toes into my ribs until I move closer and closer to the edge of my bed.. and finally BOOM I'm on my butt on the floor. My 2 year old daughter gets up because her sister does, My 1 year old son wakes up several times a night just for cuddles. I want to try to start small and at least get my girls in their beds. Has anyone made this transition? How did you go about it?

Well, I'd like to get my 4 yo DD out of my bed. I think we're going to start w/putting her bed next to mine, then a couple feet away, then eventually in her own room. The idea of sleeping in her own room is such a foreign concept to her that I know it wouldn't go over at all at this point. So, we're going to try baby steps. :)

That's a good idea. My bedroom is very small as I have my kid's beds in the master bedroom, I'm sure we could figure out a way to rearrange it somehow. Thank you. I feel bad for wanting her out of my bed, but at the same time I know that none of us are getting the amount of sleep we need to function the next day.
