Getting baby to sleep at night

My 3 month old son just started sleeping in his crib, however, he is still waking up every 2 hrs no matter how much he eats.  I know this is normal for babies this age, but when he was about 6 wks he was sleeping 6hrs a night.  At some point last month he started to wake more often, now it is every 2hrs and almost exactly the same times.  I thought it was because he wanted more food, but he would drink 1oz.-4oz. at a time during the night.  He seems to be going in the wrond direction.  Any suggestions to get him to sleep longer?

My daughter is the same age. To get her to sleep all night this is what we do. Give a bottle at 5 then At 8'its bath time ,playtime then at 9 she gets a 6oz bottle and sleeps all night. Usually wakes up anywhere from 5-7 for a bottle

 I'm going to say it may be a growth spurt. Could be teething, could be a little of both.

They'll go through stages of sleeping all night then not.

Thanks ladies! I'll give it a shot and be patient.  He is definately starting to show signs of teething and I'll see if he would eat a little more before bed(we also have a similar routine). It seems like every week is different when it comes to babies.

My son slept through the night when he was anewborn and now at 15 months tends to wake up periodically throughout the night. I just get him a drink of even reposition him and he usually falls right back to sleep. At 3 months though I agree that it could be a growth spurt or teething. Where he used to sleep did he have any kind of noise, like a TV, fan etc? Maybe some kind of mobile that plays soothing sounds would help if he is used to noise, or if he isn't and there is a noise now that could be the problem.   Hang in there momma!!

I was thinking both of these things too.
