Hi, I remember those nights but mine was 4 months old, If you are sure its not any medical issue like a cold, teething, ear infection and in one case and i dont mean to scare you but inform you- a child had swelling in his brain cried every ten to 20 mins.
So if all of those cases are eliminated, I say feed him more. lol. Boys i think are especially hungry. If you are doiing milk only its time to introduce some food, and something hearty for dinner. This was my son problem he was hungry so I fed him more started with oatmeal cereal gerbers added baby bananas stage 2 to that and it was a hit. He began to sleep more provided I changed his wet diapers ( before i found an overight that worked for him and i only changed that once a night ) while he was asleep. He was sleeping through the night at 4 months. So feed him, experiment. A baby will turn his head when they are full. Your baby maybe old enough to eat a real banana in peices.gag reflex is just a baby's way of learning to eat solids. I've worked with infants and seen this hundreds of times. But most parents freak out and stop feeding that particular food. Do not get me wrong, we all should use common sense when giving our baby foods that are soft and easy to swalllow. But i have still see even my own child gag off of these foods. No worries allow him to cough to clear his throat and offer some water or milk then offer the same food in a smaller peice and say chew as you mimick with your own mouth. They will learn good luck Mommy.

Try babies magi tea, hope he'll sleep most of the night. The tea is organic and no preservatives at all.
