For whatever reason, my 4 year old is not wanting to sleep in his own bed. Let me not forget to mention that he has TWO beds in the house: one is his room and one in my bedroom. My fiancee and i feel it's time to get rid of the toddler bed in the master bed, and I agree, but how do we keep him in his bed all night?


He's rarely sleeps through the night and when he does wake, he finds his way back into my bed unbeknownst to me since I'm knocked out. 


Bedtime has become a chore. Before we could lay down with him and he would pass out. Now he's up moving around, fighting sleep and it take almost two hours. This just isn't going to work. Any suggestions from other mom's going through the same thing?

Aw, I feel for you, my ds will be 5 next month and still gets in our bed ( with a 3 month old). I hope someone has advice, I would love to know how to get him to stay in his own bed all night every night. I mean surely by high school, if not, college he should be outta my bed right!?! LOL
