My 15 month old on the other, he will bonk around from one breast to the other, climb on my head, try to back off the bed, squawk, squeal and bite for hours at bed time. I finally figured out 2 nights ago that if i wear him, he'll actually fall asleep in a reasonable amount of time. Before that it was taking me 2+ hours and some tears to get him down. I never did figure this out with DS1, and he was the same way.
Any ideas on how to go about getting the baby to sleep without having to wear him? i think it works because he's pretty much restrained so he has to actually be still for a while. They're both this way in the car too. I'd really like to be able to put the baby to bed in less than 45 minutes.
Have you ever had a kid like this?
