2 year old not sleeping through night

Does anyone have advice on how to get my two year old to start sleeping through the night again? He wakes up at least 4 times a week in the middle of the night and is wide awake. He used to sleep through the night, and go to bed easy - now both are a struggle. Help!

My two year old has started the same thing - just after Christmas. I've tried night line on / vers / off.  Letting him cry.  Going in to comfort him.  Putting him back into a crib (vers a new Toddler bed) .. some nites are okay .. others are bad.  he's also trying to stop napping during the day.  Poor little guy has bags under his eyes. I thought it was nite terrors, growing pains, teething - have not yet found the answer - other than lots of people complaining about the same issue.  Seems to be when they HIT "TWO" !  One person made a comment about a herbal remedy called "RESCUE".  Not sure if I want to go that route or not.  I've tried everything.  Any other advice ? Let us know.  (other than letting him sleep with me - which instills bad habits)

My son does the same thing. He has always woke up at least once during the night for a cup of milk. I don't know what to do about it either!!
