How can I get my 2 year old to sleep in her own bed and sleep through?
She wont get in her own bed and when she finally does she wakes up three or four times even if she in bed with me or not!
She has always gone to bed on her own in her own room since she was born! its only been since august she’s started to create!

isn’t 2 still a young age for a child to sleep alone?

let her do some physical play activities in late afternoons to tire her out (as well as build her muscles and bones).

add a drop of brandy in her milk before she goes to bed.

my son did the same thing he will still get yp sometimes but not as mush now. We give him a good size snack an hour or so befor bed it helps he fells full through the night. And at the same time I did talk to our doctor about why he would get up off and on my doc suggested that we bur him down with baby lotion at bed time to to help relax his little body kinda a growing pain thing. Best of luck to you.

We have been having the same problem with our 2 year old son. he will sleep very well if he is in bed with us but he won’t sleep in his own bed. We finally gave in and started letting him sleep on his little couch that is in his room…he likes sleeping there. I am not sure why but he prefers to sleep on the couch. He also hates it when we are sleeping with him…I have spent several nights sleeping on the floor of his bedroom instead of in my bed. I am hoping it is just a phase and will pass soon!!

Good luck!

Keep trying to put her in her own bed. I am not a fan of letting a child just cry, but keep trying. If you need to, put an air mattress in her room and sleep in there with her until she is comfortable again. If this doesn’t work, you might pick up the “No Cry sleep solution for toddlers” by Elizabeth Pantley. Its a great book!

Answer by Miss Marlboro
I’m 19 and in college. I don’t prefer shy guys, although I do like “caring” guys who love animals. But I sort of hate children.

The kind of guy I prefer is very clever, intellegent, sly in a non-malicious way, sarcastic and with an adventurous spirit. I tend to think men who are too “easy to get along with” are boring and always bent on avoiding conflict. Personalities with character and a dash of controversy are the best for me. But I’m always told I’m not easy to get along with either, so I might not be your type anyway.

This does NOT mean I like men who treat me like crap or are “players,” I just like guys who have a zest for life and don’t change their views to meet others needs. A strong will, sense of honor, and a word of gold are huge plusses also.

What can I get a two year old with a broken ankle?
My friend’s toddler broke her ankle on Friday. She can’t be on her feet for 6 weeks. Any ideas what kind of toys or videos I could get her to help keep her occupied for at least a bit?

O that poor little girl! How awful. I am sure she will make a full recovery. I have a beautiful two year old granddaughter. She is quite a handful.

I am sure plenty of people will provide lots of good ideas to keep her occupied. I will pray for her parents that they will be granted the patients to deal with her needs. It will not be easy!

get her a wagon so she can sit in it but still be around everyone and go with people even though she cant walk. try baby dolls, finding nemo, coloring books and spending time with her if she is stuck in her bed or on the couch so she doesnt want to try to get up… its just a few ideas hope they help

Answer by Lone Wolf
I really like Sroyal’s idea for the wagon… make sure it’s padded on the bottom, and she can go anywhere.

Movies are pretty easy. Some of the older movies (VHS or DVD) you can probably rent a bunch for cheaper at the video store, of the old Disney movies. Coloring and fingerpainting (Crayola Color Wonders is awesome – no color streaks!). Or try making vanilla pudding fingerpaint; use food coloring in it. She can color on paper with a tray on her lap, and then eat it when she’s done. Or try making sock puppets with her, and either hold a show for her, or with her for her mom/dad/siblings!

I wish her well, and her parents’ much luck. I have a 2 1/2 year old myself — they do NOT like to stay still!

Answer by starfire978
there are several toddler “laptops” that are educational and will keep her occupied for hours. Also plenty of coloring books and a new pack of crayons is a classic. If her parents have a computer maybe a toddler software program would help keep her occuppied.
Also let her mom know a great way to keep her from messing with the cast or brace is to wrap it with an ace bandage and give her washable markers to color the bandage. Keep a couple of different bandages around and wash them as they get full of her doodles.
Also wooden puzzles for toddlers are always a hit with little ones.

Answer by eri
A nice book with flaps would be good, or a giant coloring pad Crayola has a really big one with box of big crayons, or PLAY-DO… can be messy but will keep her entertained!

Answer by eve
So sorry! One thing is for sure, she can spend hours with books and be occupied and learn so much. There are so many great books out there and many of them come in board book form so she can hold them and look at them and no one has to worry about her ripping pages. She can look at them on her own and hopefully people will read to her often. Just go to your local bookstore and pick out whatever you like yourself. I could make suggestions but, you almost can’t go wrong just going to the children’s section and finding what looks good to you. She can’t have too many books!
