I am very worried about my 10 month old baby boy. Since his birth, I breastfeed him and he never slept through the night yet. The last two months things got worse. He starts "crying", it is actually a loud voice, with his eyes closed, every 2-3 hours in the middle of the night. He won't stop until I breastfeed him. I tried to hug him, to sing him, to hold him, to swing, to give him water..Nothing stops him. He puts so much strength , he kicks, he gets very agree, it becomes a very scary little man. When we have this situation in the middle of the night I feel that my baby has psychological problems or something! I know babies are different than adults but still..I feel very tired, I go to work and I feel exhausted. I am thinking of stopping breastfeeding, if this is the reason. I tried to give him formula for a couple of times but he did not like it at all.
I would like to add that he has problem to take naps during the day as well..We use the relax, or stroller, or hands to make him sleep for at least half an hour!
Any ideas or similar behaviors?

Well, elena, I think it's because u r still doing the breastfeeding. I stopped it at when my baby was 8 month old, and from 9-10 months, he started to sleep for the whole night. And there is another problem, if ur baby is teething now, it will make him very painful and upset, he cant sleep well when he is teething, u can check that!
