I don't know what to tell you...sounds like some good info given already. I just hope you're able to get back into a good pattern soon and get some sleep!

It might be the nursing to sleep.

Babies start realizing their surroundings at a point and for many if not most, they get a little freaked when the way the fell asleep isn't the way they find themselves later on.
(and if you think about it, I do to --- I expect to be exactly where I was when I fell asleep when I wake up) This is why it is commonly suggested to let babies fall asleep on their own.
But that sort of transition in and of itself takes a week minimum usually to get to....

I hope you figure something out.

IT could be the nursing him to sleep and him just wanting to be with you. He could be waking and not putting himself back to sleep. We had the same problem with Ryland, he continued to wake every 2 hours until he was close to 6-7 months, it was a rough start and even then he still didn't sleep through the night til close to a year, And now he still wakes at 5:30 to nurse
 
It depends on if you want to let him CIO or not, I did only if he was fussing but if he cries hard I go get him. I'm a pushover though

I went through the same thing with melody, it seemed that she had growth spurts that lasted for months at a time. Don't know what to tell you but it's probably teething, that's what it always turned out to be with mel, a little pointy tooth would pop up. Hang in there.

I totally agrree, I started nursing emma til hse is really sleepy, then i lay her in her bed and she falls asleep quickly, Then she sleeps all night, and if I do nurse her to sleep and lay her down asleep she is up all night long wanting to nurse.
