Bedtime concerns.

My almost 13 month old has changed all of the sudden. He used to take his cup of milk drink it then fall fast asleep and sleep all night. Now he will scream as soon as I put him into his crib. He wakes up several times during the night screaming. I have tried several different things but have had no luck. We are both just super exhausted and sleep deprevied. Any suggestions?!?!?!

all my kids did this and i too got extremly exhausted, its just a phase they go through and if you go in everytime they cry etc, they will learn crying= mummy/dady to come in. just make sure they are ok and leave them to cry, its extremly difficult i know, but ive been through this 3 times and it works, they will eventually over time get the idea that crying doesnt achieve mummy and daddy to come in, my daughter is refusing to sleep now, i know she's ok so im just leaving her too it, she will tire eventually,she has been getting worse at night time cause my hubby cant stand her cring and goes in her room to settle her all the time, but ive told him, he;s making the situation worse, leave them to it, of course not for hours, but make sure their warm/fed safe etc and let them settle themselfes cxx

He did have strep about a week ago and it did start shortly after that. He has been back to the doctor and she says all is well.

ear infection? How long has this been going on? Any other signs or symptoms? Runny nose, pulling on his ear, slight fever .... had a cold that he got over a few days back?
