Re: Wow, I feel like a BAD mommy...

He doesn't do it at night but my middle son has decided he'd rather not give up naps after all but I'd rather he doesn't nap (he goes to sleep easier at bedtime if he doesn't nap) and there have been several times recently where he's just laid down on the living room floor or couch and gone to sleep in the middle of the afternoon. It happens.

I think you are a talented MOM!!!

A Mom friend of mine told me once that she put a child lock on the inside so her kids couldn't get out . . . I thought it was kinda mean at the time. Now I think I might use it when we are in the transition period.

My DS is almost 3 and still falls asleep in front of the door. I'm pretty sure that part of it is b/c he can see the TV from his door....hehe. As long as she wasn't crying hysterically or screaming for you, she was just fine. HUGS mama!

Re: Wow, I feel like a BAD mommy...

Thanks for the chuckle this morning, mama

We did the co-sleeping thing for a little over a year. We tried to the pack-and-play thing, but my son apparently herds sheep in his sleep.

Our solution was a futon in his own room. He occasionally has a tumble - but we have pillows all the way around it. I will never forget the night I found him asleep on the floor with his head on our cat. (Furry pillow anyone?) Both were totally sacked out.

Aw, its kind of funny actually! You definitely aren't a bad mom! My dad always tells us about his best friend growing up and how his parents could never get him to sleep. He would go and go and go and they would find him out in the yard fast asleep LOL...he just couldn't stop playing long enough to actually go to his bed.

My two youngest girls did that! I would put them down for a nap (only happened at naptime ) and they wouldn't be crying or anything and I would go up to check on them and I wouldn't be able to open the door b/c they would fall asleep on the floor right in front of it on the HARDwood floors.

Re: Wow, I feel like a BAD mommy...

My youngest went through a phase where she only wanted to sleep in the closet. No idea why, but that's where she slept. All of mine have fallen asleep in front of the door. I have a picture of my oldest in a milk crate. It was one of those plastic ones and it held her toys in it. Well, she took some of the toys out, climbed in it, was playing, and fell asleep. I think she was 9 months old at the time. Under a year, I know.
