My two year old does this too. She slept with us for the LONGEST time, her crib was barely used...she may have slept in it for a grand total of 8 hours. around 18 months I finally got her a toddler bed and got her to sleep in it, and she did great! She would sleep all night. Now the last month or so, she keeps waking up in the night. Any little noise wakes her up, or if she drops her binky and can't find it. And she'll cry and cry, I have to go back in her room to calm her down...then as soon as I walk away she'll start crying again. She'll go back to sleep after a while, but then the next time she wakes up she just comes and climbs in our bed. I don't understand why she did so well for a while and now just doesn't want to sleep all night anymore.
Just make sure your LO has a full belly and a clean bum and hope for the best I guess.
