I wish some of the more experienced mothers among our readers would respond here. It sounds like a normal crying child issue, rather than anything more complex or related to the mom's illness.
Does anything in particular happen now ( or maybe used to happen and now doesn't ) at 11 pm ? If this is a persistent problem, a child psychologist could help assess the situation in more detail, and suggest better ways of handling it

Rienka is he awake while he is sobbing? He could be having night terrors, which often occurs at that age. Post on the Parenting forum too, this has been discussed there.
