DS (2 years) was sick these last two weeks. It started off with croup and then turned into a nasty cold with a chesty cough. I had him sleeping with me in bed those 2 weeks and now he refuses to sleep in his cot! DH doesn't want to co sleep because 1. Our bed isn't big enough and 2. He won't be able to sleep because he'll be too worried about rolling on to DS.
I've tried putting him down for naps in his cot and he just screams and screams and screams. He's not crying, he's just calling out to me. I had taking naps with me some days when my morning sickness was unbearable but now he wants to take a nap with me all the time.
Any suggestions on how I can encourage him to sleep in his cot?

can you put the cot next to your bed (or a bed next to his cot) so you can help get him used to the cot again while still being comfortable? maybe give him a couple more days to feel better, and he may be more receptive to sleeping in his bed.

Could you try ditching the cot and get him a single bed? Then you could lay next to him til he falls asleep.
