I usually just grin an bear it. Sometimes during those phases I would find that if dh took them and could get them to sleep, he would just lie down with baby on him and baby would stay asleep a little longer. I also still swaddled them, or at least their arms at that age if I was trying to get more sleep time.
Have you thought about side caring your crib, or using a co-sleeper? Baby is close but not in bed with you. I co-sleep, and I am also a light sleeper. If you look in the best research out there about co-sleeping (mcKenna) mother and babe actually begin to sync sleep cycles, so you may find that if you give it a try in some form, after the initial adjustment period, you actually begin to sleep well. I have always been able to sleep/nurse quite easily in the infant stage.
Some babies love baby hammocks. I made one for myself, my baby didn't care for it, but I have friend whose baby LOVED it and wouldn't sleep any other way. There are several different types but here's one http://miyobaby.com/
Ultimately, while it sucks to have a baby who does this, it is usually just a phase. Growth, cognitive/motor development, teething, illness- can all disrupt sleep. So hopefully it's just a short phase for your little one.
