  • If I know my son hasn't slept in awhile and I can tell he's tired I make him a bottle and feed it to him in his room in the dark. It usually works. If not then all I can guess is maybe something hurts..Could be teething. If he's crying a lot I would say it would be something hurting and I would check temp and give tylenol or motrin.

  • Can you put him in his car seat and go for a quick drive around the block? Then just bring him inside in the carseat and leave him there???

  • My son was doing that I JUST barely got him to sleep. I gave him some mylicon for his tummy and we got in the bath together and I rubbed his stomach while he kicked and splashed around. He's out cold now! Maybe a warm bath with mommy is what he needs!
