That is soooo hard!!! Our son did that for many months... it seemed like from the beginning, he'd wake up in the middle of the night to nurse, then would want to be up for a couple of hours. I was so sleep deprived and fried that I don't remember how old he was when he stopped doing that. We just kept him in his room, with the light off, and stayed in bed with him until he was asleep. It was really miserable though and I sure wish I had advice for you... I think for us it was something he grew out of. (He has his own room but there is a double bed in there if he needs to sleep with someone.)
We never could co-sleep because whoever slept with him was never rested, it never helped us really. Now he's 2 and just sleeps better in his own space and so do we! It's not like we didn't try though, heck, we tried everything...
