My daughter has slept with us on and off her entire life. She went thru a good 6 mos going to her own bed and sleeping there the entire night. The last 6 mos though she has flat out refused to be in her bed and will only go to sleep in our bed. I sometimes carry her back to her bed after she falls asleep but most nights she comes back screaming bloody murder few h later. Shell be 4 soon btw.
I'm not going to fight with her over it but I am kinda looking forward getting my bed back at somepoint..
