fine at nap time, screams at bedtime

My 15 month old goes to sleep fine at nap times, but at bed time screams his head off.

At bed time his older brother is in the room, and I am not sure if the crying is frustration at not being able to play with him, or if there is another cause.

Luckily DS1 soon drops off in spite of the screaming from DS2.

We do have teething going on, but I can't believe this is what makes him scream every night.

Any tips? (We are roughly on a GF schedule, so are pretty "regular"!)

We always have a problem putting dd(2)down when her step sister is here. I'm sure it's because she doesn't want to miss out. We took her to a New Years party and she wouldn't go down then - she saw the New Year with the rest of us and eventually collapsed in the travel cot!

DD is normally very good at going to sleep, but on nights when I think she just isn't going to I leave a side light on and tell her she can read her books. We often hear her moving around and talking to herself, but eventually it goes quiet and she drops off.
