  • We still co-sleep (but mine is younger) and he falls asleep arounf that same time. mine takes an early evening nap which I have been trying to eliminate to make him go to bed earlier but it doesn't work. I just lie with my little guy until he does go to sleep. Try to treat him as if we are not putting him to sleep, just hanging out lying around with him, cause as soon as he thinks he's being put to sleep, he gets mad and fussy!

  • What time do you put him to bed? Maybe hes just not tired? However if he's screaming he most likely is! lol I would just sit in his room with him until he falls asleep. Do like supernanny and slowly move closer to the door each night. If he is in a crib then I would just go for the CIO method. It worked for my dd! GL

  • Find a bed time routine that he likes? i don't know, just suggestion. Do you still breastfeed? I feed my guy until he falls asleep but my guy is only 7 months! If he doesn't fall asleep drinking, then i read and lullaby to him which he likes? A bath with relaxing essential oils helps to calm and tire him too. Lavender is a good calmer
