He is otherwise a great sleeper- can do 8 hr stretches (DS1 didn't do this until he was 1.5 yrs) but I never get more than 5 broken hours each night because of this 2 hour festival. He even wakes up DS1 and DH which makes for a crabby household the next day. I never turn on lights or talk, keep sound and stimulation to a minimum, try burping him extra (sometimes it is spit up that keeps him awake). Nothing seems to help. I rock, bounce, shush, pat, and ignore but it takes two hours every night. Yeah, I know he will grow out of it since I lived through DS1 waking every hour for over a year, but this is still miserable.

My son did this at the same age, and then, suddenly, just...stopped. I think you're doing all the right things, but I know it's no fun. Hang in there, mama!
