I played a game with my son around Christmas time... I bought a thing called The Little People Santa Sleigh Ride (with Santa, and Elf and all the deer) and told my son that Santa had called me and told him if he slept in his own bed, that Santa would leave him an early gift in the morning. My son tried it one night and ended up in my bed... no gift, he tried the next night and stayed there all night, int he AM I put one of teh deer in a small gift box and set it outside his room, when he woke up he was amazed! Everynight after that he got a deer, then the elf, then Santa... been sleeping in his bed ever since... it also helped that I bought him Spiderman sheets and everything (he adores Spiderman) Family Dollar stores always have character sheets for cheap.

My 4 year old sleeps with me but he dose sleep in his own bed most of the time in the middle of the night at times he will crawl in bed with me and kick my husband out. there were so much stuff going on time he was born I became a comfort blanket for him . At naps put him in his bed start off that way. at night time lay in his bed with him till he falls asleep give him something of yours he loves and let him sleep with it. it will be hard for awhile but he will get used to sleeping in his own bed once in awhile he will get in bed with you but just put him back in after he falls asleep. Good luck

My almost 4 year old still sleeps with us as well. We just had our second baby and bought a king size bed for just that reason. :-) I haven't tried to get him to sleep in his own bed yet, but when I do I would want to to completely stress free and with no crying. My son is becoming less dependent on me for his sleeping comfort at night since the baby was born and I'm nursing him during the night, so I think he will be ready to move in his own room soon. I plan on doing the same thing we do in my room which is brush teeth, story, and lay down to sleep (no cuddling anymore b/c of the baby, but I will when putting him down in his room). I won't be making him cry it out or punishing him for getting up or not wanting to sleep by his self b/c that normal. If he wakes up in the middle of the night, my son will just come into my room and climb in bed. I think after a while he'll either stop doing this or I will take him back to his room and lay with him until he falls asleep. I am only doing this because I think hes ready. If after trying it I see that hes not I won't force it. This is what works for our family.

I hope this helps, but since I haven't done it yet, I can't say what has worked.

hey my husband and even me had to go into my kids room and fight off the monsters i know for a fact we looked silly doing it but that worked and well for the other one it took a night light.. nothing bright but enough for them to see whats in their room.. and "fighting them off" you may have to do this lots but it worked..

ok since your son is this age is will fight you big time! and most likely by now he knows what gets to you.. its time to back a little off the babying him.. i know it sux its hard my son is 2 and he was in his crib from day one.. because i had to learn from the first 2 that it isn't good to keep them in the bed.. it makes it harder to get them OUT.. lol.. but he will scream and cry try putting him to bed an hour or 2 before bed time so he might get to sleep on time... and this may take weeks depending on how strong willed he is.. good luck start your 3month old in the crib the min. she is sleeping all night so you don't have the same problem with her.. GOOD LUCK!! because him being your son you want to baby him.. its hard..
