We bought this toddler bed off Craigslist for $10 total. Trae wakes up and always ends up in our bed unless he was sleeping in the crib, which of course meant that Archer was in our bed all night every night. It was either that or both of them were in there all but the first 2 hours...so I thought maybe a cute little bed of his own would do the trick. He seems pretty stoked here, after I surprised him with Lightning McQueen sheets.

Conked out and slept the entire night through.

...or not. He actually went in our room and fell asleep all on his own in our bed, and we moved him here where he slept for about 3 hours and then came in our bed. I know what you're thinking..."you STILL rock him/let him yank your hair to go to sleep?" I know...but seriously dudes, I have never been able to let my kid scream and cry for hours (because they are that stubborn) it just gets on my nerves to much and I get all tense and frustrated and take them out just so they shut up. (of course I don't tell them that, but by the time I get them out I am frustrated enough that those words are coming to mind)Ahem. The second night was better, but he was still in our bed by morning. I thought maybe if we set the bed up in our room for a week or two and he got used to that, then maybe we could move it into his own room and he'd sleep peacefully all night long? Any other (non-judgemental) opinions? I know that you shouldn't rock kids/let them sleep with you/nurse them to sleep or they'll be doing it until they're 16, BUT since I rebelled and did it anyway, now I am open for suggestions on how to get them to sleep in their own bed ALL NIGHT LONG, because somehow they know just when I am dozing off and wake up and then I have to get up and get all cold to go get them and nurse them...or send their dad off to lay with them in their toddler bed, but he totally digs the Lightning McQueen sheets, so he doesn't mind.
Also open for suggestions on weaning, because I want my body back and Archer really doesn't care about that fact, he just wants boobs.
