I have a 22 month old. Sometimes you just gotta let'em cry. You say that you cannot stand for him to cry, but by giving in to his cries, you are guaranteeing that he will cry more and more.

Fight the small battles now or it will be an all out war in the future full of crying, wailing and gnashing of teeth.
