My 20 month old baby has been waking up at night screaming without allowing us to calm him down. This was a half hour to an hour session of shreaks were the whole household and probably neighborhood heard him. And this went on every two hours!

I was searching online for methods and tried them all.

Baruch Hashem, inspiration hit. So what we do now is I go into the room and lay him down, he pops up. When he's fully standing I softly lay him down again, no words no negative vibes. Yes ladies this goes on and on- 10 minutes. Then he's only sitting up, little guy is tiring. And eventually he just stayed laying. Now he could finally hear the mobile and slowly drifts off to sleep. 15 minute total!

With much appreciation to Hakadosh Baruch Hu, he slept for 6.5 hours after that. Poo poo poo, may he continue to improve his sleep routine.

I felt like I was there supporting him and actively doing something, unlike other methods of leaving, letting him scream it out...

Sounds like it may have been night terrors.

Nothing to do. You're doing the right thing. My 2 year old has them sometimes too, she thrashes around and doesn't respond to is. Scary. I usually put her somewhere safe (her crib) so she won't hurt herself

The baby woke up from habit, since he always woke up at his liking and got nursed back to sleep. Now in the weaning process, he sleeps for longer stretches but is mad when he wakes up and not being nursed.
He has good reason to be upset, but the screaming had to end.

Sleep training takes time! Keep doing what worked the first time. Expect it to take several weeks, because it will. The quick methods are tougher so probably won't appeal to you.
