10 month restless at night

hi, i have a 10 month old boy , who has never slept through the night ever, and he seems to restless although he''s room is silent and there is a little bit of light so its not completely dark. he sleeps at about 9am for 2hrs and then sleeps again at 7 night for bedtime. he still feeds everytime he wakes up.
he has breakfast, luch , dinner and snacks, but seems to have a insatiable appetite , especially at night .

please help, exhausted mother and slightly frustrated

Something is keeping your baby awake at night.It is probably unlikely that he is hungry as he has plenty to eat during the day. Also he has never slept through. The most likely reason for his behaviour is acid reflux which is causing him discomfort and waking him up frequently. It would be a good idea to take your baby to see a paediatrician as he will respond well to treatment if he does indeed have reflux.
