Hi, How do you normally get him to go to sleep, does he put himself off or do you put him off?
I ask because my 6 month old daughter was putting herslef off to sleep until recently when she decided she didnt need sleep anymore, she'd still be getting tired and cranky but when i put her down in her cot she'd unwrap herself and either cry or play for anywhere up to 1.5hours when id give in pick her up and cuddle her to sleep.
I spoke to a sleep specialist yesterday who said that at about 6mths old they seem to change the rules and start really developing wants/not wants all of their own, she said to go through the whole process of teaching her to put herself to sleep again, that i need to take her in and either wrap her lightly or not at all, give her a cuddle and put her to bed then leave the room and only go back in if she gets a distressed cry, otherwise letting her whinge or play for up to 2 hours then even if she hasnt slept at all get her, let her have play time/feed time as per normal then do it all over again, even if it means for a couple of days we're both stressed and tired. well i started yesterday and am happy to say that she seems to be getting a bit better already, yesterday was pretty rough on both of us with her only managing 1hour sleep all day but today she's just gotten up from her second sleep...
I dont know if this is any help at all, i know i've dribbled on a bit.
Hope alls going ok
