  • have you tried to let him cry it out? it sucks and its hard, but if he is so tired hes worked himself up that much than for my daughter, any type of attention just keeps her up, especially when she was that age. try letting him cry for 5-10 mins if you havent already. if you have and you think you can go longer go ahead and give it a shot. if you can't do it b/c you can't handle that (which is fine each of us is diff)
    is he sick? like hes been crying the whole time? maybe he is teething, give him whatever you have for teething and see if that calms him down

  • If he is wide awake, put on some dance music and dance with him for a while. Enjoy this time. He will be young for only a short time.

  • Put him in his bed, and let him fuss it out. Some times babies get over stimulated too and just need to be left alone in a safe calm spot. For that matter children, adolesants and adults get they way too from time to time.
