Tantrums at bedtime

My 14 month old is still breastfed at bedtime and naptime and he has full blown tantrums when he is done nursing. I am letting him wean himself off of nursing and I don't believe in the cry it out, but I don't know what to do about the tantrums or how to handle it. Didn't have this problem before. He has them throughout the day but at night time it's harder because he is in his bed and I don't want to make him hate his bed by letting him have his tantrum in there. Any advice? Right now he is sick with a sinus infection but he was doing it before he got sick too.

      When my son throws fits I put him in his crib and then close the door and normally within a few minutes he is fine and I go and get him. He is a lot like me and when he gets sensory overload or he just needs some space, it is best to just leave us alone. lol He still loves his bed and has no problem going to bed when it is time. I never use it as a punishment but just as a place he knows he can sit and calm down. It works 90 % of the time.

        My daughter will go into her room and shut the door if she needs to calm herself down but with him still little I am trying to get him to go to sleep without a fight and we have a routine every night that we follow but it doesn't change the full blown tantrums that come

          He fights for so long I start putting him to bed at 7pm 7:30 if he took a longer nap in the afternoon and he is usually still fighting it 2 hours later. So then he ends up being overtired so of course the tantrums get worse
