I'm a little crazy about planning my son birthday party. Last year was his 1st birthday and I started planning in mid August and his party was mid October.

My 20month old hasn't be sleeping good at all. He will fight going to sleep until 10p and then he is back up around 5:30/6am. He naps around 11a-1pm. I dont understand why he is doing this. He is getting teeth but we give him medicine before bed. Any ideas or suggestions?
