jacks has been in a bed 2 months now and its only been in the past few weeks hes took his naps there, we tried for the first week but in the day the temptation of getting up to play was too much for him and we used to put him in his buggy with his milk and hed dose off there then he suddenly kept asking to go upstairs, hed find his muzzy taggies and a dummy and wait at the door we did nothing to cause this he just decided, he now naps well upstairs, there is the odd day he decides just to play but i leave him to it aslong as hes happy.
as for at night time, to begin with we did the supernanny technique and to be honest with a newborn to deal with aswell it became a joke, we didnt stop all night! so one night i put him to bed as usual but gave him a few books and SHUT the door (the handle is upside down so he cannot escape, mainly because he likes toilets) and if he gets up and plays i leave him for a set amount of time then i go put him back if i think hes taking the mick, now though he plays for no more than 15mins then climbs into bed himself, as ive previously said hes still in a sleeping bag and we have a video baby monitor which helps alot! although you could always use a stairgate so you could check on him and he cant escape!
best of luck, hell get there in the end! xxx
