Is there anything possible to do with an 8 month old who stays up til 3-4 EVERY SINGLE morning? We've tried and tried to get him on a schedule, but nothing seems to work! Help?

Days and nights are backwards.. try getting baby out in the sun all day long for a few days, get baby up at 8 am and start schedule then... first day will be the hardest. Wake baby up when he/she falls asleep unless during nap time, don't give up might be a hard week or so but worth it in the long run.

Some kids don't settle into a good schedule until they're older. This is part life, when having a baby. My son didn't until he was eating more solids and older than a year, and only had one short nap in the day.

I know I'm going to get bashed for saying this, but have you tried to leave him cry in his crib for 15 minuetes and then check on him and then repeat? Some children have a hard time settling down when they know mom/dad are still in the room with them.
