My 27 mnth old son is having trouble sleeping in a toddler bed.. he wakes up about an hour after we put him to bed and crawls in bed with me and my husband and it is taking a toll on our relationship.. What should I do??

most of the time i dont even now he is in bed.. he climbs in and covers up with out even waking me up.. other times my husband will pull him in bed so he doesnt have to deal with the crying.. I'm just wondering if I pushed him into a toddler bed to fast and he isnt ready yet..

When he comes into your bed I would be turning him around and putting him back to sleep in his bed, even though its going to result in tears he needs to learn that he sleeps in his bed and you sleep in yours. It will probally take a few nights of broken sleep but he will catch on. Its a new thing being in a bed and being able to get out when you want, it will ware off, but if you really dont want him in your bed then you need to stay firm on the rules because if you let him in sometimes and not others it confuses them. Good luck with it all
