Have you tried music? My LO's only tiny but playing music really soothes him, calms him down enough that he will let himself sleep (hubby plays guitar, or just youtube recordings work too!)

I have been trying al sorts to get my two off to sleep. Twins 14 months old.... its a nightmare some nights, but what I find works best is a relaxing bath, rather than a "play time" bath.
Hope that helps someone...
