    Do you think he's getting ready to drop a sleep? DD is 6 months and has a 2-3 hour nap from at 7-10 then is up till 2 and is still sleeping now at 5.
    He could be ready for a routine change?

    Thanks supergranny! He is starting to move & we are picking up a playpen this weekend so ill give it a try in that.

    So do I leave him in there with toys, or no toys? Will he just fall asleep?

    No idea AMC I dont know how to tell. He does yawn all afternoon though even if he refuses to have a sleep so I assumed he wasnt ready to drop it, but maybe im wrong

    It sounds like he's dropping his afternoon sleep, which would start to happen around his age. I would adjust his other naps and maybe keep him up 2 1/2hours. So try to go down for morning nap around 9 or 9.30 and then 2-2.5 hours awake and down around 1 or 2 for the lunch nap. That means he won't be up until around 3 or 4 and will deal fine with late afternoon/evening.

    My DS at that age used to have one sleep in the morning then one in the middle of the day then the afternoon used to be hell. He wouldn't sleep at all. He'd be up from about 2 until 7 (ish) we pushed his morning sleep out so he would be up between 530 and 630 awake till 930 (give or take) back in bed and sleep for around an hour and a half 2 hours. Up and then back in bed about 3 or 4 then sleep till anywhere between 5 and 6. Best thing we did. He is so much happier.
    It may worth trying..? It's all trial and error.

    It probably won't be easy. It will take awhile but if it works it will be heaven for u.
    It will take a fair bit of work and probably a lot of tears.

    Now I have no clue how to get him down for the night. Ive done his bedtime routine, he just had a feed & now he's really screaming in his cot. If I bang the mattress he laughs at me & tries to eat my hand (getting really frustrated by this) & patting him is hard cause he's rolling all over the cot. If I leave the room he SCREAMS.

    Can you just forget about sleep for the minute, get him up and bring him out where you are and lay him on the floor with some toys?
