That's amazing to hear that he's sleeping through the night now, and that being on the side isn't affecting him anymore.
It's also great that you've got him on such a great routine! The routine is really good right now that I would hesitate to tweak too much... especially bc he is getting quality sleep at night.  Here is a list of what might be causing his EW... anything pop out at you?

And he's also getting milk throughout the day, no?

OH btw, the rule of thumb I had was to not go in to him until at least 6:00am.  Then I would open the curtains and make a big "good morning" show. If he was fussy before 6, I pretended it was the middle of night and kept things dark and quiet with minimal contact.

Thank you for your reply.

Yea, he made great progress but I had to stop turning him to his side. It was a lot of hard work and patience involved since I didn't want him to cry at all. But we made it through.

He is not getting almost any milk through the day except the bottle in the morning. Our pediatrician said he is getting everything he needs and that this is common with allergic babies. Also when he wakes he is not hungry and has no problem wating for his bottle.
I have tried everything from this list and nothing is working. Today I have found a post where the mum said she had to cut the last nap in order to get a longer night. So we will try this for a couple of days to see what happens. Hopefully this works because I am out of ideas.

Do you mean the last catnap? Was the other baby 7 months, too?  At 7 months, it's a bit early to be dropping to 1 nap. How about capping it?

My son is almost 10 months old now. But yea, my English is not so good. I didn't mean to drop the nap, I woke him up after an hour to see if it will help in the morning.

Oh yes, definitely shortening the second nap can help!  How has it been. Usually it takes 3-5days to see any difference.
