Can you put a stair gate across his door?

I've thought about that but I think he'd just stand there and shout/scream.

I think a stair Gate might be your only option. Yes, without a doubt, he will scream, but only because it's new. He will eventually learn that he's to stay in his room, but i know it won't be an easy or simple transition.

We had stair gates too, the boys used to shout but were ok with them and Flynn actually didn't want us to take it off when he was older lol!

Stair Gate does the trick here. He'll probably shout etc for a couple of nights but he'll soon get used to it x

Hmm maybe we'll try it this weekend then. I've got visions of him trying to destroy the gate to get out lol.

We're having similar issues!
We've put a stair gate on the door. We've also bought a gro clock so he knows when to get up and he really gets it so it's working well. We also use stickers, he gets one if he climbs into bed and another if he stays there. It's not perfect but things are improving.

I bought him a gro clock a few weeks back but he never stays in his bed until the morning to see it change to the sun!
