Thank you everyone for your replies. I am more concerned about the long term and keeping up with what he eats. The sleep issue unpon more thought might be an unrelated issue. He has been staying up later than normal and has a lot of difficulty napping and getting to sleep. The napping has been going on for several weeks but getting him to sleep at night is getting more difficult. he used to solidly go down to sleep at around 930-945 but now he can go to sleep as late as 1130! He consistently wakes up in the 3am or 4 am hour. Now he will occasionally wake up at 1 am or 5 am.

We actually try to get him down around 9-930.
What we noticed over the weekend is he is showing signs of teething. I didn't think he would start this early but he definitly is teething. It was funny because on Thursday night we considered it but didn't say anything to anyone. My mom watches him while I am at work and she said "I think he is teething" and his parents watched him on Saturday while we were at a wedding and both said "I think he is teething" And yesterday we both said "he is definitly teething!" I think the sleep issues now are related to teething along with trying to transition into the crib. I think both at the same time is way to overwhelming to him, so unfortunately we will have to wait to transition for a week or so. He also seemed to have more pain in the evening last night than any other time. And his pain was more when he was trying to eat. I felt so bad for him. He was trying so hard to eat and go to sleep! The gum stimulator and a cold wash rag to naw on helped. And he will have to sleep in the rock and play for a little longer. Oh well!
