Hi, my son is 17months but is Constantly crying. About 1h/2h in the morning he wakes up and starts crying. My husband has to pick him up and stand with him. What can it be? He gets a lot of attention and it makes me sad to think my friends boy is so satisfy with everything and does not even get attention. I love my son and cant wait to get home from work to see him and then he starts moaning then I cant wait for bed time.

Have you made a note of the time he starts crying, If it is a particular time each morning that needs to be addressed. Colic is another reason children cry alot.
Baby colic (also known as infantile colic) is defined as episodes of crying for more than three hours a day for more than three days a week for three weeks in an otherwise healthy child between the ages of two weeks and four months. The cause of the colic is generally unknown. Fewer than 5% of infants with excess crying have an underlying organic disease.

Crying associated with a baby's colic can cause relationship stress, breastfeeding failure, postpartum depression, excess visits to the doctor, and child abuse, such as shaken baby syndrome.

It is present in 5–25% of infants. Treatment is generally conservative with little to no role for medications, either conventional or alternative. It often disappears when the baby is three to four months old, but can last up to one year. Colic typically does not result in long term problems.
