Well, you asked for thoughts.... I think he's too young. A that age he needs to nurse at night and needs to be with mama. Maybe you can work on teaching him to stay in his own space at night and not bonk you too much...

We have the pack-n-play set up at teh foot of our bed. When the baby goes to sleep for the first time at night, put them in there own bed (the pack-n-play). When they wake up bring them into bed and co-sleep the rest of the night. Sometimes they will wake up with in minutes and sometimes not for hours. We just keep this up untill they regularly sleep through the night usually around 2, then we transition them to their own bedroom the same way.
Jessmcg thanks for posting this. I think I fall more into your camp and hope to begin DD's transition to her own room in the 1-3 year old age range. It's nice to hear about your experience with your babes.
