Our son is 10 months old. He has a regular bedtime, but often he just isn't tired and I can't get him to sleep. He won't even lay still for a second. I don't think I can force him to fall asleep if he isn't tired, but DH seems to feel otherwise. He gets pissed at me if our baby isn't tired and won't lay still. He seems to think I can magically make the baby fall asleep. DH has yelled at me about it and it starts fights between us. I don't know what else to do. If the baby isn't tired than he isn't tired. So most of the time baby and I will leave the room to hang out on the other side of the house until he gets tired. Even then (when I am sacrificing my sleep so DH can sleep) DH will come out and bitch at me about us being awake! Our son is on a good schedule. He wakes up from his nap around 2pm. There isn' anything I can do if he isn't tired 8 hours later.
BTW Please do not suggest CIO. I will not put my baby through that.
