my son has been having a problem sleeping thru the night and when he wakes up climbs into my bed.. he used to sleep in his own bed til he was about 8 months when my husband deployed to iraq.. I moved back to AR to live with my parents so for the past year he has slept in the same room as me.. now that I have moved back to VA he has his own room but will not stay in his bed.. any suggestions on what to do..

I know this is frustrating for you but your lil man has had alot of changes going on all around him. Give him the comfort he needs and build his security up. It won't be long before he don't want to snuggle in bed with you he will want to sleep at a friends or something. Your doing great and questioning what to do is normal but I beleive in co-sleeping, and your child won't always try to sleep with you thats a horrid rumor. About once a month my five year old comes in for a hug in the night and goes back to bed, And thats okay...Just decide whats right for you and him.
