Or if they used to what age did they stop?
Every night C gets in, occasionally both boys. C kicks me in the head if he doesn't have enough room. I am exhausted.
When will they grow out of it!?

M did for a short period, she was coming in about 5am then not going back to sleep. We got a gro clock and she's not come in since, well not till after the "sunshine" comes up anyway. How old are yours?

Ours used to but when she was about 3 or so we told her she was too old to do it anymore and we simply took her back to her own bed. (We have only one child though so don't have to worry about waking another child up. She's allowed to come in if its a reasonably early time (so I wouldn't kick her out at 5.30 am but that's because she's an early riser anyway so it wouldn't be usual for her to be awake at 6am and come for a cuddle.

Ours only come in our bed if they're ill, but even that doesn't happen often as H has a bad back and finds it difficult to sleep for worrying about them/him getting hurt.
They do however often jump in our bed in the mornings, especially at the weekend, but never before 7am.

They might come in for a cuddle in the mornings, but not during the night.
Always been very strict about that.

No. Never have. S is still in a cot, so can't get out and C only comes through if she need the loo or we've not heard her shout. We all like our own beds thankfully, but we never encouraged them coming into our bed, even as babies. It's the only space we have to ourselves. They can come in after the sun is up in the gro clock on weekends, but they want to get up then anyway.

Mine always have on and off. J is 2 and a half and the last week or so has started staying in his own bed. A is 4 and has reliably slept in her own bed every night for a few months now. The baby spends half the night in with us. I do what I need to do to get sleep and they've grown out of it themselves

I think I'm just going to have to go with it for now. They've both been poorly this month so it's more frequent than usual at the moment. C is much worse than his brother, he is in every night. He's 3 and going to school in September. Vaguely remember his brother got better at sleeping because he was so tired from being at school 5 days a week.
I've tried returning them to bed, but I get to the point where I'm about to drop off again and they're back! Tried a gate across the door but he now knows how to open it. Foiled!
Have a gro clock type thing. Will try to use it more.
