My eldest daughter, Jyma Sciezka, turns five last May. Earlier this year, I have started convincing her to sleep on a different bed but still in the same room with us. She can sleep in her bed alone for months now without any problem. I can see that she also enjoys it. She no longer insists to sleep beside me. But recently since we bought her new mattress, she often falls out of the bed in the middle of the night 🙁 Sometimes I woke up when she fell but there were times that when I woke up she was already beside me. My only consolation is that our room’s floor is made of wood so she was not that hurt. But still I don’t think it is healthy that she keeps on falling. I already asked hubby to add a railing on the side of the bed to avoid this incident. But while waiting for Husband to do this, I decided to allow my daughter to sleep with us on our mattress. Anyway, it will not be forever that she will be sleeping with us so I might as well enjoy and cherish the times that she wants to sleep beside us.
