My Son won't sleep, day OR night! I tried everything from Bedtime Routines, CIO and everything in between. He is now going on 2 days and 2 nights of NO sleep. He isn't cranky or fussy anytime though, which is the strange part. He's almost 6 month old. He seems to want to be up and moving and will only sleep an hour at a time at night. He was put on Acid Reflux Medicine and a different formula and that isn't the problem. I know he's teething, but that's no it either... He's very self-entertainted and "busy", so he's not fussy, he just won't sleep.... Any advice or solutions?

If it were me I would just keep up with a routine daily and nightly by putting him in the crib same time every day for a nap and every night for bed. Eventually he will get tired and fall asleep. My daughter was 6mo old before she finally slept through the night I would still get up and breastfeed when she woke, my doctor told me she's not tired in the middle of the night, it's just habit because I would feed her. He said to let her cry or fuss when she wakes and not got to her until it's been 10min and then I can console her and put her back in the crib wait 10min and repeat routine just no feeding, every night I was to increase the time by 5min and by the 3rd night she was sleeping through the night. And now at 15mo she sleeps from 7:30pm-7:30am. Children thrive on the same routine so just keep doing what your doing and eventually he will get tired and fall asleep, best of luck!!
