You can try putting a toddler bed in your room and slowly move it out of the room into his room. My dd sleeps with us and most of my kids always did when they were little. They eventually do move themselves. I also read last semester that kids who sleep with their parents have higher IQ's, are more self confident, are less likely to develop depression as teens and adults & have better grades. The reason behind it they think is the child never feels scared & has more self confidence and is willing to try things without feeling any insecurity. The benefit of cosleeping stops when the child reaches around 10. Just FYI.
