i did the same thing im expecting in august and i wanted him to start sleepin in the big boy bed and of course they are gonna cry, but u keep putting them back in the bed. and get a routine for them to do before they go to bed. like i give my son a bath, rub him with lotion. put him in his bed cover him with his blanket, read him a book and let him lay there until he goes to sleep, but for a while i just had to let him cry in his room until he went to sleep because he would get out of his bed to many times like it was a joke and then it got to the point where he would cry but then he would get back in his bed on his own and go to sleep and now he just lays there till he falls asleep, so just give it time. it takes a while.
