5 year old Sleeps on Floor


Hello. My son just turned 5 this month. For about the past 3 months he sleeps on his floor. He refuses to sleep in his bed. He goes to sleep right away and sleeps soundly most nights. Occasionally he wakes up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. When he does wake up, he wakes me up to turn on the light in the bathroom. Then he gets a pillow and a blanket and spends the rest of the night on the floor next to my bed. Should we be concerned? My husband thinks we should make him sleep in his bed but I wouldn't even know how to do that since he's just going to get out when we leave the room. And he's not disruptive - he just prefers the floor rather than his bed. Is this a problem or something he'll just grow out of?
