You know what has worked lately for my 20-mo? When I'm getting frustrated with sleep, I'll say something to him like "Are you having trouble sleeping?" and he'll say "Yes", then I'll ask if he wants me to sing him a song. He'll always say "yes" to this question, and he settles down on his pillow right away.

He seems to be unable to nurse to sleep all of the time anymore, and starts doing the same thing---running around like mad, overtired. He's not the rocking/singing--to-sleep sort, so this really surprised me. But just helping him to acknowledge that he's having trouble going to sleep seems to help him cakm down, and the singing seems to focus him.
