My 5 month old is really fighting bed time- for both naps and night. Sometimes I'm able to nurse him down, but often he finishes nursing and still isn't out- at which point we really struggle. He's so active! I try to sooth him in every way I can think of but he fights it like crazy. Im trying to get him on a regular schedule because I think it might help him, but he's so inconsistent; often he naps for 45 mins but every once and awhile he'll sleep for two hours, which is great, but totally throws off any attempt at a regular routine. I've tried the EASY method (eat, activity, sleep, you) but I can't seem to calm him very well, we often end up spending over an hour trying different things before he finally goes down.. Ideas???
