my son will sleep late...

You need to make him have his nap after lunch so that by the time it's his bedtime, he's tired. My daughter is 13 months & we went through this as well not long ago - i found allowing her to play with some toys in her cot, help her to tire-out (she was usually asleep within half an hour or so), a large bottle of warm milk will do the trick as well - it fills the belly nicely & don't go in his room every time he makes a noise, that will only make him think you're playing with him. If you want his asleep by a certain time, yet he wants to play, put him to bed a little earleir & let him play. It wont hurt if he's awake a little later than usual, it just means he'll probably sleep a little later in the morning. It's not a big deal - i guess he just may not be tired, you may have his bed time too early or allowing him to sleep too long during the day. Try a few different things & see what happens. Good Luck!
