I haven't really had this problem, but here's what I'd think to do:

Walk him back to his own bed. Every.Single.Time. If you're consistent, eventually he'll get that he needs to sleep in his own bed. If you sometimes let him stay and sometimes don't, he'll likely keep doing it knowing that eventually you'll let him stay in your bed.

I'm assuming he's slept in his own bed before with this advice. If you've always bed shared and are wanting to transition, you probably need a different approach ;-)

See that's the problem, he has never slept in our bed always,slept in his crib. He started doing this after we switched him to a toddler bed. IDK what his issue is!

Probably the novelty of the fact that he can. I'm sure it'll pass soon enough!

My daughter is a very wild sleeper.  We finally had to make a pallet on the floor in our room for her to sleep in when she needed to be near us.  But at 3, we'd pick her up after she was asleep and put her back in her bed.

You could put child locks on the door. It might not keep him in his bed, but it would keep him in his room.

If u can afford it, maybe try a bed tent to put over his bed. My 3 yr old has one and loves it. Of course he has been sleeping in his bed since we got it, but since we put the bed tent, he loves it even more.

My son is two and we had a problem when we switched him to his small toddler bed.1st he is tall for his age almost 40inches and 2nd He is a very active sleeper constantly moving and switching sleep positions. After almost 2 months of laying on the floor on comfortors under what he called his fort ( blankets going over the foot of the bed to the dresser) i bought him a xl twin bed since then we have had no problems getting him to go get into bed at night. We also put a baby gate in his doorway and if he does wake up at night he will call for us to come in we sit or lay for a short time just until he gets comfortable and can fall back to sleep. So maybe try a bigger bed.

This sounds like it could make it fun
