I will contact your pediatrician just to be sure it could be ear infection as well even though are not so recurrent on summer... just remember when babies cry is because they want to tell you something.

I had this same problem with my daughter, it ended up that she was teething (the back teeth hurt her and disrupted her more) but after the teeth came in, she was then in a routine of screaming at bed time. I put her in her bed and rubbed her back to soothe her then left her room. She screamed and I would stop at her door and stand where she could see or hear me so that she would know I was still there. She wimpered and cried a little but went to sleep much faster. Each night she calmed down faster and faster and with in a week I could once again walk out of her room.
