Exactly same thing happened with my one year old. Can I ask how long you tried controlled crying for? My wee man was very stubborn and it took 5 days of controlled crying- well it was more crying down as when we went in to reassure him it made him worse!
It was extremely difficult and I wanted to give up as the first night he cried forever. But we persevered and it is fantastic now.
He goes down without a fuss at night and for naps.
Let me know how you get on and remember you are only letting baby cry-you are not making them cry.
