He will be two July 19th. for the past two (almost three) weeks he has refused to go to sleep til 2am, sometimes up til 4am screaming in his crib because his father and i haven't held him for him to sleep since he was 6months old. He has never had an issue until recently.

I have talked to her quite a few times but it still doesnt seem to sink in that he acts horrible during the day and now its to the point where he wont take a nap at all either

my mom did the same thing with my son. she used to always rock him to sleep and every time he whined or cried she would shove a bottle in his mouth, even if he was trying to escape the bottle. i tried talking to her about it and explaining why i didn't like those behaviours, and i recommend you try that first, but it didn't work with my mom and so i limited the time she spent with him so it wouldn't be so much of an issue

Just tell her you're having a hard time getting him to sleep at night and ask if she can help by not holding him while putting him to sleep. Good luck!
