Sleep regression

I need advice about my 18 month old’s sleep regression and using the Ferber Method. We’ve used it for his sleep training in the past, and it’s become very difficult. Has anyone dealt with a toddler that cries for hours before going to sleep? HELP

    When ever I think my son is in a regression, really, I have to step back and look at his schedule. Is his nap too long? Nap too short? Push bedtime back to ensure he’s tired enough? Did he burn enough energy (ie playing outside)? If I see all of these things add up fine then I definitely consider pain- especially with crying/screaming and laying down. Usually an ear infection or even teething sometimes. Good luck!
