My son has been sleep crawling since he was 5 months old. The main time that I find him is at about 5:30 am heading out the bedroom sound asleep. Any suggestions on how to stop the sleep crawling?

Hi Poppa_az -

Wow, and he is completely asleep? How old his he now? Is he still in a crib?

While waiting for others to respond see this info on sleepwalking.

My brother was/is a sleepwalker. When he was younger we had a gate at the top of the stairs, my mom would hear him trying to get over it and walk up to direct back to bed.
