he WAS a great sleeper

My son started sleeping through the night at five months. Now, three months later it's as if I have a newborn. He cries every hour, sometimes every half an hour. Any thoughts as to why and any advice? He isn't hungry, I tried, he won't take the bottle.
Has this happened to anyone else?

Is he inconsolable or does he go back to sleep easy? Have you changed routines or his he sleeping in another place?

Their sleep patterns change so much in the first year.

My daughter slept pretty well from 5 months - 7 months, usually waking once for a bottle. Now she is 8 months and she is waking more often and very early in the morning. I have read that there is an 8 month sleep regression. They are learning so much right now, it can affect their sleep. She has learned some new skills this week, is working hard on trying to crawl, and I suspect she is teething, too. Hoping this is just a phase that won't last too long for both of us! :)

Have you considered he may actually be overtired? He is learning and doing more each and every day, that he may just be crashing too hard causing more frequent waking. This happened to all three of my littles around 8-10 months and I had to extend their afternoon naps.

We never had a routine. It's his paci he wants I noticed. He used to find it and put it in his mouth. How do I break him of that habit?

If he wants it I'm gonna guess he is teething. My little one slept 7-10 hours and took 2 two hour naps during the day at 3 months. But she started waking up and not napping as long around six.months which is when she started teething. As far as the paci goes I don't know. My lo have hers up at 8 months. Just didn't want it anymore.

The only consistant thing about babies is inconsistency :-)
I'm sure it's just a phase that will pass. Teething and hitting new milestones both commonly cause sleep disturbances.

Yea. I read about sleep regression. How they are being over stimulated because they are learning to crawl and hitting milestones. Lasts three to six weeks.
