My 7 month old son will not sleep more than an hour during the day. At night he wakes up every 2 hours. Which is getting to be about a hundred times a night! I'm not sure how I can get him to sleep longer I feel like I have tried everything! He has been sleeping in his vibrating chair because it the only place he will sleep more than thirty seconds, but now he is to big so we brought his crib in our room. He will not sleep in it! He will play and play until he is to tired to play anymore so he screams til you put him in his chair then he sleeps about 2 hours and wakes up. Most of the time he doesn't want anything! someone help me! give me some ideas because he has to be tired and I know my husband and I are exhausted!

what worked really well for us was just to give him a bath right before bed everynight it was kind of our sign that it was bedtime and then just let him cry it out. ( do make sure he is safe and that there is no way he could hurt himself) every night gets a little better and it takes a bit to work so give it a good chance before you give up on it. our son has been sleeping in his bed every since so it worked for us. Good Luck!
