I am at a loss as to what to do

I have a VERY HARD TIME getting my 3 yr old boy to take a nap or go to bed. He screams when he finds out its naptime or bedtime and wakes my 4mth old up. He does stay in his room but he is very loud on purpose and he stays up as long as he can. Most of the time its 2-2.5 hours before he finally goes to sleep. I have tried the supernanny thing of sitting in his floor with my head down and put him back in bed when he gets out but that doesent work. I am so exhausted between dealing with him dealing with a teething baby and getting up at night with the baby. I dont know what to do.

Im lindsey a 22 year old  married,christian,sahm to two little boys Landan and Colin,formula feeding,vaxing,bottle propping on occasion,ff at 1 year,cio method using,spanking when needed,likes to sing but not in public,my mom is my best friend,110% pro-life,I dont support being gay or ,this is who I am if you don't like it Im sorry.

My 3 yr old doesn't take naps any more. Now we just have quiet time with a movie.

This too shall pass??? I really don't know, I'm in somewhat of the same boat. I let my son sleep with us when we moved to where we are now, and now when I try to get him to sleep in his bed, he's like a newborn and wakes up constantly, and will stay awake for hours before he konks out. I gove in and let him sleep with us becuase that is how I'll get sleep. Our pedi said 2 is too old for a nap...but he still gets one, he is a monster without a nap. I know I need to buckle down.

Good luck.

I think it's time to say good-bye to naps.

My almost 2 year old is the same way. I lay down with her for about 10 minutes rubbing her back than all of a sudden her eyes get heavy and out like a light she is. Maybe at bedtime (if you can) lay with him for a few minutes and rub his back. It soothes them knowing that mommy is there and nothing is going to harm him in anyway.
