You have my sympathy - my eldest was just like this! Slept through the first time at 3 and half years :-(
First - get him examined thoroughly by a pediatrician, including urine test for infection. Ask the pediatrician to also please do a sonar to check for Urinary reflux even if the urine is clear - they normally don't if the urine doesn't show infection and this was my son's problem! If there are no medical problems, it may be behavioural. Try not to feed him every time he awakens, or just give dummy or water - you don't want him to "eat" right through the night! If necessary you can give him a feed when he wakes up at 24h00 to carry him over till 06h00. Don't jump up everytime he peeps, see if he doesn't go back to sleep if you leave him for a few minutes. It may also help to put him in his own room, it may be quieter for him and you will then also hear it only when he really yells. Make sure that he is warm enough and that his clothes are comfortable - beware of a scratcy tag in pajamas!
Get a friend or family member to take him at least once a week for the night so that you can get some rest. They also sometimes notice symptoms that you won't which may help with diagnosis of problem.
Hope this helps!
