My two year old just figured out how to open doors and now won't stay in her room at night/for naps.
My toddler has always been an excellent (though light) sleeper. No problem self-soothing, etc... However she recently learned how to open doors and has been coming out of her room multiple times when she is supposed to be sleeping. We have an ok-to-wake clock and she does seem to understand the concept but either stays awake staring at it waiting for it to change or totally disregards it. We also have an 6mo sharing our room that she often wakes up when she comes into our room early in the morning. My husband also leaves early for work which wakes her up often (no matter how quiet he is). To top it all off she has just learned to use the potty so I don't want to keep her from the bathroom at night of she needs to go. Do I just need to let the novelty of doorknobs wear off or put a gate up or what? Just looking for some advice. This routine is really interrupting her sleep (and mine). TIA!
