A few weeks ago my son (14months) started getting his molars, then got an ear infection, then had an allergic reaction to his antibiotics, then was on steroids, and then got the flu. This poor little boy has been through so much lately it breaks my heart. His sleep schedule started getting whacky from the first, when he started teething. It kept getting worse and worse and worse. Now I cannot get him to sleep before 2 am no matter WHAT I do. I need advice. I can't handle not sleeping and I haven't had any alone time with my SO either. I've tried keeping him up all day with no nap and everything.

Do you have a bedtime routine?

Sometimes when I can't get my LO to sleep, I end up turning off everything and every light and just lay down with baby. I know co-sleeping isnt for everyone but it would only take me an hour to get him to fall asleep. (But that's after bath time & story). Good luck, I hope that you are able to find something to work for you soon.

sleep begets sleep, give him naps and try laying down with him or moving him to his crib after he's fallen asleep on you, try warming his blankets in the dryer too

Yeah and I still follow it even though he doesn't go to sleep afterwards like he used to.

I have tried this. He won't stay asleep :( I think I'm going to take him to the doctor to see if there's anything physically wrong with them.
