My son is almost 11 months old, and he just took his first steps two days ago. That same night at bedtime, he refused to just lay down in his crib and go to sleep! Before this, I could read him his story, give him his bottle and rock him, and put him in his bed sleepy but awake and he would just roll over and go to sleep, no problem. The last two nights it has taken almost an hour to get him to sleep! I lay him down, he stands right up, over and over again! I'll rock him until he just falls asleep, and he as soon as I lay him down he wakes up again and starts standing up again. The only way we eventually got him to sleep was to rock him until he was passed right out, after his workout of standing up over and over again. I am beyond frustrated I don't have a clue what to do! I go back to work in one week, and he is also waking up over and over in the night and standing up and needs to be rocked back to sleep. He was still waking up for one bottle in the night before this, and I can handle that, but I don't know how to make him just sleep!! Please help!
