my 7mth old does not sleep well at all . maybe only a 30 min. during the day and is up about every hour at night. He has to sleep in car seat and when i lay him down he only sleeps like 10 min. He has sounded junkie since birth. His ped. told us he has athsma and started breathing treatments.I have done a little reserch and i think its reflux of some sort, but he never spits up. we are desperate to get sleep! any ideas ? please help!!!!!

I doubt it's acid reflux because that tends to calm down about 6 months. The reason is because they are usually sitting on their own and they are starting solid food.
If you want to try and see if it helps, make sure all bottles are fed while he is sitting up. Then he must stay upright for at least an hour after a bottle. This will help keep the milk in his belly and not creeping up in his throat, which hurts.
This will mean he can not lay down with a bottle to sleep. That might be hard for a 7 month old who might be used to doing so.
