Try to tire him out alittle more..now that he is getting older babies need more stimulation during the day. Maybe try to skip his last nap or try a nice warm bath using bed time baby wash from johnson and johnson..it's the purple bottle and it works for my little girl.

I sit here reading this, while my 9 1/2 mth old is in bed.. not sleeping! lol It's true, the whole sleep regression thing. My 3 other children did this as well. But.. its bed time, she is tired, and she will be staying in her bed until she has had a sleep! Of course I won't let her cry it out. I will pick her up and comfort her. At the moment it is just noise, it will wind up though probably in about 5 minutes. lol. Everyday this week has been the same, and I expect it will continue until her top tooth has cut properly and she has mastered standing up properly! Thankfully she will sleep all night, and I only have to pop her dummy back in at about 5am and she will go back to sleep till 6ish.

I read that article and am so glad I did. My little guy has been up a lot lately and I am so tired. But he is so close to crawling so it all makes sense! thanks!

My daughter has always been difficult but I learned that she needs to nap earlier. And the bedtime soap didn't work for her but the one for a child with a cold did. I believe its the one in a blue bottle.

My daughters sleep regressed when she was teething, she was so miserable at night, nothing helped. There were many nights she just fell asleep with me holding her and that's how we spent the night so we could all get some rest.
