Why won't my 18 month old son go to sleep? No matter how early I get him up or when I schedule his nap he refuses to go to sleep before 12am, sometimes not till 1am! We are new tenants in an upstairs apartment & the downstairs tenants have been complaining about our little one running back & forth past 10pm.
I don't know what it is with him. Not only will he not go to bed earlier than midnight but at 10pm when I need him to start being quiet he get's a burst of energy & get's super hyper, wants to run up & dowm the hall & giggle.
I am legit worried we will get kicked out over this, the landlord has asked us 3 times & sent multiple emails all weekend. I've tried everything to get him to go to bed early. It's the end of winter finally & I know we haven't gotten out of the house much, hopefully now that's it's starting to warm up we can get outside more & this crazy toddler of mine can get some energy out.
Any suggestions? I think I just need reassurance it will get better, it feels like the new born days all over again except not only am I exhausted but I am worried we will get evicted if I can't contain my wild son.

I've thought about trying this more cause he does take an hour and a half-two hour nap everyday but sometimes when I take his nap away it makes him over tired & cranky which means it's even harder for him to fall asleep at night. But if I take his nap away I think he will just cry it out for 20-30 minutes at night & pass out.Unlike last night where he cried for a whole hour till he made himself puke.
It might take a while but our neighbours downstairs might have to hear him cry himself to sleep for a few weeks rather than running & yelling.

put him in bed go in every 5-10 minutes settle him down and then put him back in bed, but do not pick him up or anything tell him its time for bed.
