Ive even tried keeping him up later... Nothing has changed... im just out of ideas and starting to fall asleep while hes up...

  • Depends on why he is waking. Is he hungry (may not be getting full), if he wants to play don't stimulate him when it's nap or bedtime. If possible don't pick him up. You can soothe while he is laying down. If you have a SO let him do the putting down for bed if possible. Set of a routine so he knows what to expect. Some kids don't do well with bath before bed. May have to do bath, then feeding , and not to stimulate him to much.
