  • Try giving him a bath after dinner and keep him awake during the day... He may be getting to much sleep before bed- and the bath will wake him up and wear him out a little so a few hours later he will knock out- and feed him right before you put him down. Good luck!

  • Does he sleep in his own room? Is there anyway you can bring him into bed with you for a while? Maybe he just needs to be near you right now to go to sleep.

  • He may be a little old for this new product, but check out Its designed to help babies sleep better and longer. It was designed by a mom and pediatric pysical therapist to help sooth babies and helps prevent those twitches babies do that wake them prematurely.
