It’s pretty normal for children at this age to spend part of the night in your bed. What do you do when he gets into your bed? Are you returning him to his own room? Has he got blackout blinds?

My DS is 5 and still gets in our bed if he gets up for a wee or if he's had a bad dream ect. Me and DH enjoy it as we know that one day he will be grown up and we'll miss his antics sad

I'd look at stopping screens of all kinds between dinner and bed time. Wind down time where they do something more focused that they enjoy before doing a story and then staying with them til they fall asleep to start with, gradually leaving them on own sooner and returning until they get used to it it will take alot of your time and patience, but try and enjoy the cuddles and also lying down yourself!!
