9 month old or sleepless terror?

My baby was the perfect sleeper, sleeping through the night from six weeks until about 7 months - then without cause it all changed. I'd read that it's a phase so tried riding it out, when we couldn't take much more, we "sleep trained " and that worked for a few weeks and then again suddenly stopped working. I can't go through crying it out again but waking every 3 to 4 hours to feed is slowly killing mommy, any advice?

It is probably teething. Most children start teething about that age, and it can last quite a while. It usually comes in waves--a few weeks of wakings followed by a few weeks of good sleep, and so on until all of the teeth are in.
Most babies don't actually usually still need to wake once or twice for the first year, sometimes longer.
