First, as a proponent of cosleeping, him sleeping with you is only a problem if it's a problem. If everyone sleeps better with him in the bed, it's totally fine for him to be there. He will outgrow it! With this age, if he is feeling like he needs that extra security, and he senses that the more he needs it the more you push him away, it can make him more insecure, and therefore more needy. He's at an age of incredible developmental leaps and rapidly increasing independence, and this can be actually scary for them at times; it's really common for a toddler this age to crave extra comfort at times, to know that you are always there for him even though he's his own person. But if temporary cosleeping isn't for your family, look into the No-Cry Sleep Solution For Toddlers, it is highly recommended!
