Do you bless your son before bed time? We as mothers are to bless our children. I find when I bless my children and pray for God to remove any devils or demons out of our house they sleep much better. We had a bad situation takes place a few months ago and it really hit my kids and I the most. It was very scary and I found that the more I prayed over them and blessed them the more the situation went away. Do you know of any medical problems he may have? When my 8 years son was a baby from 3 months until now he kicks and just moves all over. We were told he had what they call blueing of the legs it's were the legs are not getting enough blood flow so it's causing him to do this. We had him going to a chiropractor and they really seemed to help. He goes in next week for a full checked and to see what is really going on. We just now found someone who can help. It could be your little guy is having a form of growing pains too. I would try blessing him first and if that does not seem to help maybe try taking him in to a chiropractor that deals with children. May God bless you in finding what will help.

Both of my children do this. I don't really know how to get them to stop. I guess they are either just not very comfy or they are rough sleepers. Its always hilarious to see some of the positions they finally do fall asleep in!
Marta's suggestions are very good. That was what I was going to say.
oh, you can also try putting a dab of Lavender essential oil on his sheets somewhere where he wont mess with it. Lavender is a very soothing scent and has been proven to aid in relaxation. :)

There really isn't much that you can do. He may just be having a hard time getting comfortable (crib mattresses aren't exactly very cushy). My oldest was like this and he still is just to a lesser degree. There would be mornings where I'd find him with his legs propped up against the side of his crib (feet straight up in the air). All you can do is turn the baby monitor off until he falls asleep; if he starts crying let him do so for 5-10 minutes (whatever you feel comfortable with) then go in give him a big hug sing to him (or read whatever you do for your bedtime routine) and put him back in bed. You could also invest in a nightlight in case he's afraid of the dark. Good luck and God Bless.
