12-month-old wont lay down

My 12-month-old will not lay down and go to sleep.  We have had a bedtime ritual and a set time schedule since he was VERY young.  My wife will nurse him and lay him down, he will fall asleep and then sit up and cry.  He nods off a little then wakes back up screaming.  We have let him do this for almost 3 hours without even a hint of him laying down.  He had been sleep-trained before but now, nothing.   He just cries and cries.  He immediately goes to sleep once we bring him into bed with us and sleeps fine, but he wont lay down.  We dont have it in us to let him do this all night.

I'm confused by your post.  Even when you bring him into your bed,  he won't lay down?  There's something wrong here,  if he is happy to sleep in the sitting up position but won't lay flat.

Is that what you're saying?  Sounds like maybe ears,  or something else that causes him pain when he lays flat.
