6 month old waking up tired from naps and bedtime

My breastfed son will be 6 months old next week, he used to sleep from 9p-7a when he was 4 months with his last feeding at 8p (so I know he can go 11 hours w/o a feeding), over the past month we have moved his bedtime up to about 7p and he now wakes at 1a to feed (and eats a full meal) and then is up at 6a making noise so I leave him in his crib for about 45 mins hoping he'll fall back asleep, but he doesn't so I nurse him and he then falls back to sleep, he doesn't nurse much, he mostly just sucks until he falls back asleep, he then wakes up around 8a. We have been letting him cry it out at bedtime only and it's been going pretty well. Any suggestions for the middle of the night feedings or the early wake time? He is a horrible napper and only takes 2 or 3 40-45 min naps during the day and also still wakes up tired. I feel he is just always tired all day long.

Sounds like a growth spurt to me, very common.
