My 8-month-old son has wildly inconsistent sleep habits. What can we do?

At night, sometimes he'll go down in his crib first try and sleep through the night, sometimes he'll never go down in his crib, sometimes he'll go down but wake up multiple times.
During the day, he absolutely refuses to go to sleep in his crib and must take his naps on one of us (usually my wife, since I'm at work). Very, very rarely has he napped in his crib by himself, and usually if we try it and fail, he won't take a nap at all.
Techniques like letting him cry himself to sleep don't work, since he pulls himself up to standing and gets increasingly upset until he starts choking.
