Ok, the chances are that he is going through a bit of a growth spurt, so waking more frequently to feed is increasing your milk production so that you can meet his needs when he gets through it. It sounds pretty normal. You mentioned it had only been a couple of days. Try to keep it up, rest during the day when he naps, and give it a bit more time to settle down.

Sleeping for 11 hours at night without a feed is an awful lot for a 4 month old, I think your expectation that he sleep that long every night is probably a bit big. Is he breastfed?
