Where does it say that the OP was sleeping with the child? Kids normally start to walk around their 1st birthday. (Both mine did at 10 months.) And many are able to crawl out of their cribs so they need to be put in toddler beds so they don't slip and fall. Kids hit to wake up their parents, not much you can do but try to teach them not to do it again.(:
YDI for sleeping together with your kid. If you still have a man in your life, it sucks for him, and if you don't well get one and buy your kid a bed!
Laugh while you can, in 9 yrs, that 13 month old will want nothing to do with you
I can't tell ya how many times I have been nailed by my kids when they were little. But through it all, I love it, considering once they hit 9-10yrs old, suddenly you go from the most important person in their lives to the one person they not want to be seen with in public almost overnight
Why the hell are you co-sleeping, OP? I can understand keeping a baby crib in your room during the first few months, but keeping a year-old kid in your bed? That is just effin' wrong.
Ok, let's think about it logically. Even if a kid of 13 months would crawl out of a crib, how would it crawl up onto her bed (the approximate height of which is about 60 cm)? I think that it would be quite a task for a toddler to crawl up on something that high. Thus, the co-sleeping suggestion.
First of all, some beds are pretty low, and second, the kid wouldn't have to get on the bed to hit her, he could just stand next to it. A 13 month old would be perfectly capable of doing that if it were a low bed. I think whether or not the kid was sleeping with her is an incredibly relevant point, because that pretty much determines if it's an FYL or a YDI.
