Has he ever slept on his own? Did he just move from his crib to his bed?

When my son was two he got a big boy bed, and he did ok with staying in bed for a couple of months and then he'd come into our room almost every night for a couple of months. It drove us crazy and unless I was dead tired, I had to get up and put him back in his room. (We also had a new baby at this time). So, it kind of stinks, but you have to keep reinforcing it. Now he only comes to our room if he is sick or something, and that's fine.

Have you tried laying down with him in his own bed, then leaving for your own?

Sorry, I can't help you there. Just know your not alone; my daughter, almost 3, only sleeps in her bed when I sneak her out of my bed and into hers after she has fallen asleep. About 9 out of 10 mornings she somehow ends up back in my bed. I have tried everything. Now, I am just hoping she will out grow this... still up for suggestions though!!!
