Fighting sleep......?

Baby will be 1 soon(2 weeks). He has started fighting sleep, he would rather sit around and cry and whine. He WILL NOT take a nap , and he stays up all night untill he just falls over and falls asleep(like 1am). I have tried everything, why is he doing this? I know he is tired he just won't go to bed.

  • Try getting him some good bath and lotion like the lavender or the night time stuff. Take him outside and play and play untill BOTH of you are practically exhausted. Give him a good bath around 8 or so with the soothing bath products..give him a small snack maybe...some apples or something just make sure his belly is good and content then tell him its time to go lay down. Lay him down in his room and tell him goodnight...explain it to him when you lay him down "Mommie is very tired and its night time now so you and mommie both need to go to sleep goodnight i love you! sweet dreams!" Not necessarily in that order but you get the idea. Maybe a bedtime story or something. Try might work. If not try to find something that SOOTHES him while he is sleeping such as a radio maybe, nightlight, blanket, etc. You might could try rubbing his back also....that worked with mine for a little while...typical boys! lol! GL!
