I would say that at 16 months, he ought to be able to sleep without waking at night. My nephew had a hard time sleeping all of the way through the night and my sister-in-law eventually figured out that he needed to be more active during the day. They had to exhaust him and he'd finally sleep well at night. Also, if he's eating at night, try giving him a little water so he can learn to not get calories at night. Also, I know it sounds crazy, but he might be staying up too late. Try putting him to bed a little sooner and he might sleep better. If it's teething, some ibuprofen might help. It sounds like both of you probably could use a good night's sleep. I wish you lots of luck getting it worked out.
