Hello! My three month old sleeps with my husband and I and we are trying to break the habit! The advice I would give you is to do it gradually. Have him take naps in his own bed during the day so he can get comfortable with it! He needs to know that that is where he is supposed to sleep and that it is a safe place. At night, put him in his own bed and cuddle him until he falls asleep. If he wakes up during the night, just put him back in bed with you. After a couple days or weeks he will sleep there all night. Best of luck :)
