How do you break your 3 year old from sleeping with you and make hi sleep in his bed?

He refuses to sleep in his bed. Even if we wait for him to fall asleep and then put him in it he ends up back in our bed in the middle of the night. He has a night light he just refuses to sleep in his bed.

  • we did this with our first daughter and it took a few days but we would wake up and walk her back to her bed everytime she came in. It took a few nights and I was so tired but it worked.

  • i toataly agree with the answer before it took a couple of nights but it workes i had the problem too u just have to take them back to their bed every time they come in no matter how tired you are. if u do that every time i promise it will work. and when they come in ur room at night dont talk to them or mess around just act like it is straight business right back to bed. belive me i know how tired u will be but just imagine how it will feel that first night u get to sleep in your bed with out the kids it will all be worth it. let us know how it goes good luck i know u can do it

  • why do you "break" a child of something of this sort? All they want from you is comfort and security, especially at night, a time when it is scariest for a young child!! Shame on you.
