5 month old difficult to put down at night

My 5 month old has always been a good sleeper and in many ways he still is. He has only woken once in the night from 2-12 weeks then started sleeping through from 12 weeks to about 18-19 weeks. He is back to waking once in the middle of the night a few times a week but all very manageable.

However recently getting him to sleep has become an ordeal. We have a bedtime routine of bath at 6.45pm - then bottle, story (basically keeping him upright for 15 mins) and bed. However once he has had his bottle it is lots of screaming and crying for 1-2 hours.

He naps about 3 times a day, 45 minutes at a time (sometimes a little longer). I just not sure how to help him. Any advice is welcome.
