7 month old waking up on the hour

i am really frustrated as my baby just turned 7 months and will not sleep longer than 3 hours a night in his crib. we are not keen on doing the cry it out method and i do let him try to settle himself down but it doesnt work and he hits 0-10 in minutes! His problem right now is (since he sleeps on his side) that he constantly rolls over onto his belly and then wakes up screaming, last night this happened about 10 times!! im at my wits end as to what to do with him, we are now tricking him into having water instead of breastmilk at night which only occassionally works. any suggestions for a desperate mom?

  • they have little pillow type things that you can get that would help keep him on his side if she needed him to.

    is he getting enough food during the day?

  • well i breastfeed and he mostly snacks all day, he gets cereal and 2 meals a day..i thought maybe it was because of a major milestone but not sure...
