My eldest was in with us until 12 months old and i reluctantly moved her into her own room because she was being disturbed by us throughout the night.
The girls have shared a room since my youngest was 13months old.
Just listen to your instinct, if you don't think he's ready then just bring him in with you. you could always do the day sleep in his big boy bed and then he could go to bed of a night in his bed and then you just bring him in with you.

Why don't you just do it gradually, until you both get used to it. Move him to your bed if you think it feels better for now and eventually once he's used to going to sleep in his own room/bed you can leave him there and see how it goes?
DS slept with me for 5-6 months but then had to go into a cot as he found his feet and wiggled around too much. He has his own room now (22 months) but I don't believe he's quite ready for a big bed yet so he just waits in his cot til I come get him in the morning.
They reckon children aren't ready for a big bed til around 2.5, when they understand that they need to stay in bed and not get up all the time.

Thanks for your replies i tried the same thing 2 months ago and he didn't 'get' that it was bed time and to stay in bed and i would be back.
Now he does, he says be back mum? And stays in bed playing with his teddies, he hasn't slept a cot since he was 8 months old.

DS is 2 and sleeps in a bed in his own room. He has slept in his own room since he was 3 mo and moved from a cot to a bed (with bed rail) at 20 mo. He jas his door shut at night and can't open the handle so can't get up to anything in the morning. However I sleep with our bedroom door open and we have never not heard him. When he is sick he still wakes at night and i always hear him.

DS1 (just turned two) has his own bed in my bedroom and starts off in there, but always comes into my bed at some point, so he's definitely not ready for his own room. And I'm waaaay to anxious and paranoid, all I keep thinking is someone will come and take him and I'll be asleep and not hear (i know, I have issues..)
But I might set a room up for him, so he could nap there during the day. It's a bit annoying not to be able to use the ensuite or get stuff from the bedroom..

Always have and always will. I am not a beleiver in kids sleeping in my room. Even when they are sick they sleep in their own beds. Al though i can also say they have never asked to sleep in my bed either.

We bedshare full time, from birth until 2yo when they moved to their own bed in own room. We did it this way, as by the youngest turning 2 I was about to pop out another baby and I'm not cool with bedsharing with toddler + newborn, did it once, it was a disaster!
Anyway, they were always ready to move out on their own ny this age and its always gone off without a hitch!
From around 18mo (during my pregnancy), we would start to break the boob to sleep habit and get them sleeping out of arms, so by 2yo they were independent sleepers.
It was a gradual 5-6 month process as we went gently, but it worked for us
