Our 2 1/2 year old son has been in our bed since just a few months old. He had GERD and just slept better propped up with all the pillows and we could keep a better eye on him.
Long story short, it's 2 1/2 years later and he's still there for most of the night. He falls asleep and spends anywhere from an hour to about half the night in his own bed (in another room) until he joins us again.
Our problem with previous suggestions is that we are either picking him up into our bed in our sleep and don't remember it, or he climbs in now without waking us up.
I need ideas to keep him in his own bed or at least encourage him to camp out in his sleeping bag on the floor. We have only had 3 full nights of sleep from him in his whole life! HELP!
