Don't do this for your ex and don't do this for your new man, do it because you feel its time. And once you decide that, do not blame either of them for it. When you are ready and sure you are doing it because you feel its best, start slow. How does he go to bed now? Do you go to bed together, or do you put him in your bed and let him fall asleep to the tv or what? I can give more tips if I know what he's doing now. We are currently working on getting my 3.5 year old in his own bed for the whole night. So far we've got him going to bed in his room at night, but he gets up around 1-2 am, we (I) bring him back to bed and lay with him and he goes back to sleep, but generally comes back around 4 or so... its a work in progress, but we're getting there! I'm not one to rip the bandaid off quickly, lol.
