Tough time getting 2 year old to sleep at night

My 2 year old son gives us such a hard time going to sleep at night even when he is super tired. He was doing fine a few weeks ago...but, even at his best, it would take me 15 - 30 minutes to put him down.

Any suggestions???

  • I was having this exact problem a few weeks ago. If he's crying or screaming for extended periods of time check if anything's new in his room. That was my problem. He can't talk so I had no idea he was scared.

  • I have been dancing with my daughter to Counting Crows first album every night and for nap time. She normally out by the 2 or 3 song. No crying, squirming, wrestling, etc. She thinks it's fun and bangs on the radio when she's ready to dance (not go night night) lol.
