Among the causes of your son's sleeplessness at the age of 8 months [he really seems to be a very poor sleeper during the day as well as at night] are: teething, hunger, nasal blockage, acid reflux,possible milk or other food intolerance and simply a poor sleep routine that he has developed. What concerns me is his sleep pattern as he is really getting very little sleep indeed and this alone will aggravate the whole problem. It would be best to consult your paediatrician just to be sure that your baby is entirely well before you embark on any possible sleep training.
