I'm also in this situation. I cosleep with my twins who are 2 and a half. It wasn't the initial plan and they used to sleep in their cots, but I got so tired of getting up in the night, if not with one, the other. Its nice really, but I would prefer them in their room and me with hubby. Their cots convert to beds, so I'm going to do that, and push them together, as they want to sleep together (and with me), and buy some monster truck sheets or something to try to get them in their beds. Its going to be hard because one twin will only sleep when holding my hand, and if he wakes up, he wants to hold my hand to get back sleep, but I'm hoping the fact they will be together might help.

I think Super Nanny does this a bunch with kids your LO's age. Maybe you could YouTube it? Basically a parent sits in the room silently and without making eye contact with the kid. Every time they get out of bed, they're silently returned. Parent finally leaves when the kid's asleep.

Good luck!

The way we ended (mostly) co-sleeping was to put a nice full sized mattress in my daughter's room, just down the hall. She was 3. At first she wasn't interested in sleeping there- fine. Eventually she asked to sleep in there with me sleeping with her, so we did a few times and went back and forth with some nights in her room, some nights in ours. Then we talked about me leaving after she was asleep. We didn't try it until she mentioned that she thought it would be okay if I left after she was asleep. When she would wake up in the night she could call for me and I go sleep the rest of the night with her. We did that some nights, and some nights she would want me to stay all night with her, so I did. Now some nights she is starting to sleep through without calling for me. So basically. It has been a very gradual process, led by her. That has worked beautifully for us; she's almost 4 years old. Every kid is different, though.

I guess I figure that one of these nights she'll just sleep right through. Not sure when that will happen! Probably when Leo is old enough to choose to share a room with her! For a while I was leaving her before she fell asleep, so I know she CAN do it, but it's nice for her to have me there and it's not a big deal for me.

I guess my first step in your situation would be to make sure you don't fall asleep and pre-warn your child that you won't be staying all night.
This is us exactly. My daughter went through a phase of sleeping through the night and falling asleep on her own. It didnt last long and now i sit with her until she fall asleep. She inevitably comes through to us around midnight although she has been known to cry out for me to come and get her as early as 10:30. I figured she wouldnt want to do it forever and since she says shes scared of being on her own in her room i dont want to make it worse.

I just assuming it will gradually improve over time. Lets hope so anyway. I love the cuddles she gives me but man alive can she wriggle around all night!!

I think our situation is extreme cause one evening my friend came over and my 5 year old was stood at the top of the stairs and refused to go to sleep unless I was in the room with him. It was quite embarrassing to be honest

Don't be embarrassed, my son can't sleep unless me or my husband is with him either. A lot of us don't sleep by ourselves we have partners
