Tell it is time he slept in his own bed. Then get him a bed. Make a big deal about it. Then maybe start a routine with him, ending with a story with him tucked in to his own bed. See if that works. With my daughter from birthday, I had a radio in her room. She found the music soothing. At the same time heard a human voice.

first of all are u putting him in a toddler bed? If so make a big deal about his big boy bed that he gets all to himself. Tell him u wish u could sleep there cuz its such a cool bed, lol. It works, seriously.
When we started putting my daughter to bed in her own bed I had to lay with her to get her to go to sleep. I did that for a week then for the next week i sat next to her bed til she feel asleep the next week by the door, the week after that outside the door. It takes a while but thats the most stress free way I've found. I hope it works for u!! Good luck!

well after i had my daugther my son was 16 months old when we first put him in his own bed we had to let him cry his self to sleep for a while we just closed the door intill he fell asleep and then once we knew he was all the way asleep we would open the door a little bit in case he woke up and he still wakes up and crawls in to bed with me and my husband but he goes to bed with no prob now and hes two so you will just have to let him cry his self to sleep for a whle but he will stop after a month or afew weeks itll be hard for you it was for me.

You can transition him into a matress on your floor first if you want. Once he is comfy with that suggest to him you buy him a big boy bed like mommy and daddy have, so he can sleep in his very own room with his toys.
