My son is turning two on jan 28, i don't think there has been a day since his turned one that he has slept in his own bed. After i moved him outta the cribe the only way he sleeps is if he is in my bed. I love my son and snuggling with him is sweet but at the same time i really would love to have a bed to my self some nights. Ive tried a lot of different things but nothing works he will just scream none stop and not go to sleep. what do i do?

Honestly as horrible as it sounds, to break my daughter of sleeping in my bed, i would read her a story tuck her in and then out up her baby gate at the door so she couldn't get out of her room but i wasn't closing her door and scaring her. It took about a week and then she started sleeping in her bed without having to use the gate... including nap times!
