bring him to get new sheets and let him choose! and then try to make it a huge deal about his big boy bed and that he can decorate his bed. teach him that your bed is your bed and that he has to stay in his big boy bed. every time he goes to your bed, don't talk to him, hold his hands and bring him back and give him a kiss. he will cry and fight for a few nights but keep holding his hands and bring him back to his bed. the first morning he wakes up from his bed, treat him with something special. like stickers or new toy to celebrate!! hope this helps. =)

I suggest that you try to get him to fall asleep in his own bed...Try reading to him while he's lying in bed...Maybe a night light or a special new stuffed animal and tell him that the animal is there to protect him and keep him safe and that the night light is there so the animal can see. Try a cd of soothing sounds...Whatever you find that works stick with firm!
