[...] This is the kid that STILL wakes up in the middle of the night and comes to sleep on a tiny fold out couch on our bedroom floor, which CAN'T be quality [...]

Sorry not sure how I deleted that here we go again...Hi I found you at a blog hop and am following along maybe you could pop by and meet us too! As I am typing this my almost 7 month old and my 6 YEAR OLD are in my bed. Hubby is working tonight so it is just me and the 2 kids. When He is home the babe sleeps in his bed fine. When I put him down he cries and cries when my husband does it not a problem I think it is because I am the food source. As for my 6 year old well he has the best excuse ever but we are still trying to break the habit. A year and a 1/2 ago he had a large cancerous tumor removed from his brain one of the conditions of him coming home was that one of us sleep in the same room as him. They were worried about him getting up in the night and falling. Anyway he no longer needs the supervision but the habit has been formed. All that to say I am not the best person to be offering advice. I once read in a book that children need to see Mommy and Daddy together. With Dad at work all day etc. The suggestion was for Mom and Dad to have 15-30 minutes of couch time together in front of the kids. Then go through a normal bed time routine. Explain the routine that they need to sleep in their own room etc. The theory was once the child sees the regular interaction between Mom and Dad they don't need to get up at night to see them together personally sounds a little werid but anything is worth a try :) Hope you gets some ZZZZZ!

Zoey went through this same thing and I think it might have been about the same time or a few months earlier. Did really well switching to a big girl bed and then all of a sudden, not so much! We wondered if she was having nightmares or something because she was REALLY upset. So after several sleepless nights we did put her crib mattress on the floor in our room. It lasted a few months probably. We always started her out in her own bed and most often, she found her way to our room and just snuggled herself in and she went right to sleep. It might have been cheating on our parts, but we were so tired after weeks of losing sleep and arguing in the middle of the night! Then one day she just stopped coming in and stayed in her own room. Now we've moved on to other sleeping issues, but I guess they go through stages and we just have to roll with it!
