All three of mine are sleep fighters. The BIGS will lie in bed tossing and turning for hours some nights. I've found that the more tired they are, the worse it is. With our baby we just try to first get the BIGS settled down and in bed, and just attempt to set a calm tone around the house. When I'm home, he nurses to sleep. But when that doesn't work, then dad's on night-time duty, he has discovered a technique that works for him, rubbing ds on the chest. He also loves being sung to, and he has absolutely loved Nirvana's Unplugged CD from birth and loves to stare at the colorful computer screen when the music plays. Maybe you can try different CD's see what your little one likes.
