  • Go with his schedule! Overtired babies don't sleep well. If he's tired, put him down. No looking at the clock for this. You've got YEARS yet to worry about a clock schedule.

  • I agree with gdiamante. You need to let him set his own schedule. He will get really cranky if you keep him up, and he will take hours to get to sleep if you try to force him. Let the schedule be a loose guideline (ie bedtime is between 7 and 9PM, ideally by 8, etc). It will make for a happier kid.
