I use a baby gate as well. He really doesnt like it tho if I try to put it up when he isnt lying in his bed. Luckily for me, I can usually get him to stay in bed long enough to put it up after I say goodnight. Some kids can climb over them right away, but it works for my son. I was too worried about this to even chance not having the gate up once we moved him to the bed. I hope that whatever you try works for you and your little boy!

Put up a baby gate in his doorway. For his safety. This way if he does need you he can just call to you but yet he is not confined to his room. We used our gate for a different reason he wouldn't stay in bed after we put him down. Now there is no gate but he does know that if he needs us he just opens the door and calls for us.
