If your house echoes with the sound of pat-pat-pat down the hallway when your child leaves his room to climb into your bed in the middle of the night, rest assured that you are not alone. It’s perfectly natural for a toddler or preschooler to search out his parents for comfort and security – it’s a sign of his trust and his deep love for you.
This article has some great ideas for helping your toddler stay in their own bed. Julia (my almost 3 year old) still comes to my bed once a night.

My husband and I recently got a toddler matress and placed it in his bedroom floor, it can be moved to our room if needed. When it comes to bed time I tell Austin "it's nitnite time" and he grabs his sippy and walks down the hall saying nitenite but instead of going to our room he goes to his... I have to lay down with him untill he falls asleep, then I can get up and go to bed with my husband. Around 4,5,6 or so Austin wakes up and comes to our room I am doing some good but when he comes in at that time I am just getting my "good sleep" and allow him in our room... I need to stop that......................
