The question is: whether it's medical or behavioral, if he is 5- 6 mos. or older or overstimulation if < 5 mos. Have a consistent bedtime & routine; in low light, read, rock, feed, brush his teeth or wipe out his mouth. Put him in his crib in his own room drowsy, but awake, without bottle or pacifier, to self-calm to sleep. Have his pediatrician do a check-up. See the AAP's HealthyChildren.org for tips on sleep.
