I have a 23 month old son where has not slept in his room all night since I had my second son who is now 4 months old. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this moms? He was climbing out of his crib every night so we made it into a toddler bed with no success.

This is just me, but I would honestly leave it alone and let him outgrow it. We're a co-sleeping family, and I think it's asking a lot for babies and young children to sleep alone. Some are okay with it, but not all. Everybody having their own room and their own bed is relatively new in the history of the human race. If he goes to sleep in his own room without difficulty, and has slept through the night before, this will pass. Do what you need to do to make his night waking as painless for everyone as possible, but if letting him come in and sleep half the night on the floor of your room gets you and him both back to sleep quickly I think that's fine. For me, the goal has always been for everybody to get enough sleep. I didn't care so much about where the sleep happened.
