    No. All of the bedrooms are upstairs. We'll be moving in a few months and I think we're going to take this into consideration while we're looking.

    I don't know if that's fair to her. I'd rather be woken up by a monitor so that she can have her bedroom.

    But she can walk upstairs and fall backwards. She's walked up the stairs at my parent's house.

    You pointed things out better than I ever could have. If she can make it down the stairs she can make it out of the house. The plan should be to alert the parents before she gets to the stairs.

    Cripes. My life was so much simpler before the kids. Now I fret constantly.

    By the time you have a second one, you learn that kids are awfully difficult to damage. ;-)

    I would try the monitor thing. Bells on the door would wake you up and maybe her as well. Just little jingle bells hanging on decorative ribbon around the door knob might do.

    My brother and I were sleepwalkers when we were 4, 5 or 6 years old. Luckily it didn't last too long and we lived in an apartment but we had different routes in the apartment when sleep walking. I liked locking and unlocking the front door lock -- my mom had a second keyed lock installed above the regular lock, and had another keyed lock installed on the balcony door for just in case I turned my direction to that door. My brother would open every cabinet door in the kitchen and then would sit on the kitchen chair, or he'd go into the living and sit on the couch and fall back asleep sitting there. Luckily my mom was a super light sleeper and she'd wake up when she heard us getting out of our rooms and would follow us, eventually herding us back to our beds.

    A monitor is a great idea. The baby gate worries me because in an emergency suddenly what wasn't fiddly becomes very fiddly.

    This has been a bigger fear for me than her falling down the stairs. She has shown that she walks quite easily up and down them in her sleep. I am afraid that she is going to make it out the front door and into the parking lot of the apartment complex.

    I'm liking the baby monitor idea and the bells on her door. I think we'll give that a try, if for nothing more than peace of mind so we can sleep.

    If the bells don't wake you up, you could try big stacks of empty tin-cans between her bed and the door.

    Joy,. you might want to consider putting this on the doors leading outside. Will cost about 10-15 dollars. Explain to the kids prior what it does and demonstrate how loud it is. (Don't show them how to disarm it yet)

    I like that, Siu. I'm going to see if I can find one of those. That would definitely wake up one or all of us.

    I think the point is to STOP her from getting hurt.

    We found an inexpensive baby monitor. We both woke up every time she rolled over. I'm thinking our next step is to install a chain on the front door that's too high for her to reach.

    The volume on that alarm is 91 dB. It will be louder than most smoke alarms and will definitely wake the little girl up if she opens the door.

    Our baby monitor has a pretty good sensitivity control in addition to the volume... but ours wasn't exactly cheap (it's the Philips DECT baby monitor).
