3 year old to sleep in bed?

I have a 3 year old son that will not stay asleep in his bed! I start out by putting him in the bed and then every night around 2am he comes into my room. I am 6 months pregnant and need to get this issue fixed before the baby gets here! Can I get some pointers on what to do??

  • Just keep putting him back to bed. It sucks for you but it is the only thing that will teach him.

  • Thanks ELIZABETHSMOM! My son still does this! I used to let him sleep with me for a little bit but this just caused a riff with the hubby, so I sucked it up and did this and now he only does it if he gets scared or can't pull up his pants after pottying. My DD can't open her door yet. She has a cast on her arm until Aug 11. We will see what happens after that!
