Hi. My 7 mo old boy could manage to settle himself into sleep... until two months ago when he started to scream if he had to go to sleep daytime... Like sometimes he cries an hour and a half and okay I thought I'd let him cry so he would eventually stop that habit but it's been now 2 months!! And EVERY TIME he's sleepy and needs to have a nap he would cry for at least 1 hour unless I pick him up which usually doesn't help in terms of sleeping.. I'm kinda fed up with sipping my coffee with a screaming baby in the background if you know what I mean.. Please help!

Will he take a nap if you're cuddling him or lying down with him?

If he would do that I'd probably go with that so that he gets back into the routine of taking naps and then slowly work on a gradual withdrawal method.

Babies sleep is a tough one, just as you and they get the hang of it it goes and changes again.
