how old is he? also try putting him down an hour later than you usually would. Hope this helps!

Have you tried "quiet time"? Brody my four year old went through this around 2 years old, but still really needed the nap, so I had him lay on my bed and turned on PBS, but with the sound very low. He would get tired of trying to watch and go to sleep. I also had to use a timer with my oldest. He wouldn't take napseither, but I would set a kitchen timer for however long he needed to lay down, and let him look at books on his bed.

When my eldest son got older he stopped going for naps but he was told he had to have quiet time in his bed, so he was still rested but didnt sleep. My middle son just stopped napping and that was that...he wouldnt do quiet time and it wasnt worth the fight to try and get him to sleep. My daughter is 7 months so still napping but she will probably come up with her own version aswell!!! They are all different so you just have to keep trying....something might work!! Good luck
