Re: How do you keep your toddler from jumping on the bed?

I don't mind if they jump a little in cribs, or on my daughters bed (just a mattress on the floor) but we have a VERY strict no jumping on other beds rule.

My 3 year old was jumping on his bed, and hit his mouth on my 4 year olds head knocking out his front tooth I still get a little emotional when I look at him knowing he will be missing that tooth for the next few years.

They still try and jump, but I really try and enforce that feet belong on the floor and we sit or lay on beds and that's it. If I see them jumping, they must leave the room.

Re: How do you keep your toddler from jumping on the bed?

my toddlers still jump in their cribs. The hold onto the railing and jump their little tushies into the air and compete to see who can go faster lol. They also jump on our guest bed which is in their toy room.

I guess we will just let her jump for now. I just want her to sleep and not stand there and jump all the time.

Re: How do you keep your toddler from jumping on the bed?

I let them jump, but only if they are holding my hands. They'll often ask if I can help them jump on their bed and I stand by the side of the bed, holding both of their hands. They get all their jumping out and I can guide them if they fall or get unstable. Hasn't been a problem yet.

I just tell her no. I don't allow jumping on the beds. I generally am a mean mom when it comes to craziness though

We let them jump on our beds, but I keep watch to make sure they aren't doing it by the edge.

I allow bouncing on knees, but not jumping. DD is in a twin bed though, so there's more of a chance she'll fall out.

My grandma had a younger sister that hit her head jumping on the bed and passed away (in the 1920's), so I'll use that from time to time to keep the fear in DD. "Great grandma's sister fell when jumping on the bed and got very, very sick. We don't want to get very sick and make mama sad, do we?" Or something of the sort. Works most of the time for now. I don't really care a ton about jumping on the bed (it is a lot of fun!), just don't want DD to get hurt.

We don't have any kind of playground where we live, so I let DD get away with a lot more than I would if there was a place she could go to get the wiggles out.
