My 7 month old boy just doesn't sleep much at all, he is fine at first he has a bath bottle etc and is asleep for 7,30 he will then wake at 11.00 then about 3 and he is wide awake I give him a bottle when he wakes the first time but after that he is wide awake.
It's really starting to get me down as we are so tired now I just don't see any improvement he is so different to my daughter, Its hard as its interrupting her sleep now too. I just don't know what to do

Your son may not need as much sleep as your daughter needed/needs. If he's not sleeping as much, but doesn't seem exhausted during his awake time, then you may want to try putting him down for bed a bit later.
I liked this chart I found on Babycenter. It gives average number of hours of sleep needed depending on age of baby up to 3 years old. But the thing to remember is that that every baby is different and a baby may need up to TWO hours more, or TWO hours less sleep than what the chart shows. My oldest was in the category of needing 2 hours less. My 2nd was pretty close to the averages there.
