Keeping autistic child safe when sleeping

briancharles5612 Member Posts: 43 Connected

any advice welcome. Our 3 year old currently shares with us. Main reason for this is he can’t get through the night otherwise and we are worried he will hurt himself. What I mean by that is he moves about all over the bed. 180 degrees and top and bottom of bed etc. Some nights he ends up right on the edge of the bed and we are worried he will fall off. So much so we are going to have to put our mattress on the floor today to protect him. I wake up as best I can but worry one day I won’t in time and he will be hurt.

I’m worried about his quality of sleep and his safety.
