Mim1 and Caviar you've just made me realise DS has been pulling his ear and hair while I feed him. Thanks, I'll be taking him to the gp.

Whenever DS pulls at his ears a tooth comes so could his teeth be keeping him up?

DS went thru this a couple of weeks ago (16 months) like your DS he had been an amazing sleeper (7-7 every night from 6 weeks) so it was a HUGE shock to the system!
We just stuck to the routine, the first night we let him up because a) we didnt really know what to do b) we kinda thought it was a once off and c) i thought he had slept too much during the day!
Now I have noticed (derr mum!), like when he was a newborn, the better he sleeps during the day for some reason is much easier to get to sleep at night (sleep breeds sleep?), I got really strict on the night routine and DH & I got tough on settling (we used the dont talk, just place back in bed and put blanket over technique). It took him about 4 days and thank god he is now a sleeping angel (arent they all when they are sleeping though!).
Just to add - DS has had a couple of ear infections and not once has it affected his sleep, made him cranky, or grizzly I've always noticed becasue hes been pulling at them and they are slightly red.
sleep vibes for you!

my ds is 20 months, he does this too.
We'll have a week of "good" sleeping where he goes down between 7.30 - 10.30 and then its like yeah sleep debt caught up HELLO MUMMY, midnight or 1 am etc etc and he is up at 7 - 8,
I found I had to really make him go ALLL DAY on high energy activities (kicking balls, going for walks, riding his bike) and then half an hour of full blown psycho chasing him usually makes him (and me) crash at about 8 pm
If we have a low energy day it is bad
Hope bub sleeps well for you soon, ds loathes his cot, will scream the second he realises he's in there.
I transfer him asleep now (I have a sidecar cot though)

3am he got to sleep this morning.
He doesn't have an ear infection. He just wants to party. All. Night. Long.
We've done the tough routine - putting him down during his usual times in the day and evening and he won't have a bar of it.
I guess it's just a matter of waiting this out and being consistent with times and routine etc.
I'm going to Bunnings to buy some rope for him today so I can tie him down.
