I need to get the 2yr old outta our bed and make way for the next baby! *Cosleeping*

We Co-sleep always have always will, if you don't agree I don't care, so save your breath, We do it right and never had a scare.

We co-slept with our almost two year old from birth but now with our next on its way we know we will not be able to safely and comfortably co-sleep with a newborn and two and a half year old once baby is here in June.

So how do I start to get DS to sleep in his toddler bed?

YOU  DON'T  or he will come to HATE the baby who took his place...make room for both, unless  you want to cause physchological harm to your son.

I think you should find a way to do it safely, because that seems unfair to your son and he will perceive it as being "thrown away" to make room for the new baby. Put yourself in his shoes, it's hard enough to accept a new baby sibling without having to give up your things.
If you don't want to co-sleep with both, then do it long before the baby is born so he doesn't associate the 2 events and just let him know that it's because he's a big boy now, not because you need his space for the baby.

I am asking since I have never had a second child, nor have I had to deal with to kiddies in the bed and in my eyes with the way DS rolls around at night its not a safe option.

do you honestly think the child will NOT remember being in your bed??  there is no 'making it normal for him' at this point...he will remember your bed for the rest of his life....keep that in mind, when he wants to get into bed with you and the baby.

Sorry. I've seen way too many parents struggle with co sleeping for me to agree to it. Both my babies slept in their cribs from night one . It was a struggle with sleep for a while but it was totally worth it.

Thats why I am going to try and make the change from now on, I am only just going on 5 weeks pregnant so theres about 35 weeks to go and make the change normal to him :)
