In the evenings, I lay down w. my son until he falls asleep-- but when i get up to go to my bed, he immediatly wakes up and comes to my bed. My husband and i just married-- so i feel like i need to be there for the both of them-- & my bed isn't big enough for all 3. How can i get him to sllep in his bed all night?

You could try laying down with him for just a short time but see if he can fall asleep alone. Maybe try this in short intervals each night til he can do it himself. Explain you need your own space to sleep and the bed is not big enough. You could leave a space on the floor with blankest and pillow and let him know that is his space until he settles in his own bed. Good Luck
