  • Can I partner in on your question? Lol I am in the same boat with my almost 2 year old.

  • I placed my dd(14 months) in her own bed. but i put it very close to my bed, then moved it a little further when she got use to her toddler bed. and now-2months later-she is in her own bed in her own room =)

    good luck

  • Child lock on the inside of the door if he can't figure those out. Do the household "monster" checklist. Flashlight to under bed, in closet, comedy inside tiny drawers. Have a special stuftie stand watch so he can sleep in his room. Express how he's a big boy and you're proud that he can remain in his room. Maybe lay with him with a story and explain how he needs to be in his room. Maybe give him a night light or lamp.

    I finally got my son to stop co-sleeping with me by using all those methods. Now he's almost 5 and shares a room with his 2 yr old brother. I find my older son climbs into bed with the younger one now for security sake and my 2 yr old HATES it lol. At least it's not me?
