8 month old wide awake at 4am! Help!!

My 8 month old has been waking up at 4am for the past couple of weeks now. I believe Ive tried everything: bringing him into my bed and letting him nurse back to sleep, which in the past, has always worked. Ive tried letting him cry a bit as well but he is so wide awake that he just gets really upset. Then I will just give up and let him play for an hour or 2 before we go back to sleep. His naps are a bit scattered now too because of this, taking 2-3 short cat naps during the day
his night time routine is:
lotiom massage
in the crib (sleepy but awake)
He goes to sleep ok and sleeps solid for 9hrs. But he is up and ready to party at 4am. Im going bak to
work in a couple of months and this schedule is just not realistic....and exhausting! Please help with any suggestions. ..I will try anything at this point!
