Have you tried putting him to bed an hour later? Because of daylight saving, he may not feel that it is "bedtime"!

Hi WW, just seen this. I think I said that ds has been similar. Screaming abdabs at bedtime. Usually pretty short-lived, but unpleasant and like you it's dh who finds it most stressful.

My tip FWIW is to try putting them to bed earlier. 2 reasons - firstly, they're exhausted because they've not been getting to bed on time on previous nights and secondly, if you are anticipating 30mins strop time in the cot before sleep they're falling asleep at nearer the "right" time.

We go in every 5 mins or so for cuddles unless the crying is slowing down!

Hope it stops soon. Your ds is ADORABLE by the way!!
