2 year old won't sleep all night in own bed Lock Rss

I have a 2yr+3mths boy. He has never been a very good sleeper. Will sleep 3 hours during the day but at night, he is still waking up and coming into our bed. Should we take his cot away and put him into his own bed? The other bed is set up in his room (he shares with older brother), but at night when I put him to bed he asks for his cot. He then wakes anywhere from 11 to 2am and comes into bed with us. As he is getting out of the cot, I have left the side down for him (he can't fall out).

Should we take down the cot and put a baby gate on the room and do controlled settling?? (He usually takes about 2.5 hours to get the message. We have done controlled settling almost every month since he was six months old.) It is harder now as he can get out!

How do you settle him to sleep at night when he first goes to sleep?

Let me know and we can go further.
