He is a very active baby that takes 2 - 3 naps a day of 15 - 30 minutes duration. We put him to bet at 7pm after a daily routine of bathing, book reading and changing/feeding. He then wakes up 2 - 3 hours later and is wide awake. Almost like he thinks its just another nap. We then have to take him out of his crib and put him in our bed. Even then, it takes 20 minutes or so to get him to sleep, he just cries and moves around a lot.
At 3 months, old he would sleep close to the whole night but that last few weeks he has decided to wake up more often.
We have heard of the Cry It Out method but are adverse to letting him cry for hours on end and would only like to do this as a last resort.
Any tips or suggestions on how to get him to understand that night time is not just nap time?

it is probably a growth spurt, he'll go back to his old habits soon. Here is a great article I copied over into my journal a few yrs back that really helped me http://www.cafemom.com/journals/read/91515/Baby_Toddler_Sleep_issues
