My son will be 9 months in 2 weeks and up until just over a month ago his sleeping schedule was great - he was asleep by 8:30 - 9 and slept the night with a good nap in the afternoon. But now he will not go to sleep til almost 1 if not later and to get him to sleep we either have to rock him or let him sleep in our bed but that only works for about 30 min. because he is then waking up screaming- This is a new habit since we rarely rocked him to sleep and he NEVER let him sleep in our bed! And even though he isn't going to sleep til late he is up and only getting about 4-5 hours of sleep and he isn't taking naps during the day except a 20-30 min nap here and there and those are few and far between. We have checked for teething and ear infections and we have taken him to the doctor but he isn't sick! I don't know what to do and both of us parent are so tired and cranky and so is my little one. Does anyone have any suggestions that will help us get his sleeping schedule back on track? Or at least somewhat?
