  • we recently got ds a toddler bed and pulled it up next to ours, now it's like a really big family bed, so far he's sleeping great in "his bed" if that's an option for you, it might help him transition to his own bed in his own room

  • We let our LO sleep in his bed next to ours also. It worked well for us.

  • Maybe try putting up a chart, with a reward system? Like for every full week he stays in his bed, he gets something that he usually doesn't get (McDonald's for dinner, or some candy, et cetera). Make a game out of it!

  • I would put his toddler bed next to urs if ur room is big enough and slowly move it to his room maybe after a week or 2 move it to the hallway or outside ur door then next to his bedroom door then to his room maybe that will help good luck.

  • Yeah, try a chart and rewards. It is tough. That is why I put all three of my babies in their cribs from day ONE. They never slept with us. I need my sleep and so do they.My daughter is still stuck with kids in her bed because she hates to hear them cry. She is too much of a softie.
