They do this when they're working on developmental milestones--they want to practice their new skills even in the middle of the night.
They way we handled it was to play dead--we didn't move a muscle. After 15 minutes or so, she would resettle herself. If she's getting near the edge of the bed, teach her how to get off (they pick that up really fast). And babyproof the room so that you don't worry when she's moving around.
Not sure what else to suggest--if you want more sleep and help her learn to resettle herself, I guess the only option would be to put the mattress directly on the floor. That's what we've done, and it's been wonderful.
|She rolls on her tummy and automatically gets up on her hands and knees, and this wakes her up. Sometimes she'll push up into a seated position, then she wakes up.|
