11 month old baby, not sleeping well and more.

My baby boy will be 11 mo old next week. He's alwasy been a 'high need' baby. Most times, he needs constant attention. If I am close to him ,he is happy, if he sees me walk away, he starts crying. He's alwasy need to be held a lot. Often times, when he is upset or something is bothering him, he wants to be picked up. But picking him up is often not enough, we need to be walking with him for him to calm down. That is mostly when he is sick though. He's been sleeping through teh night since he was 6 month old. Suddenly, a month ago, he woke in his sleep and there is nothing we could do to calm him down except pick him up and walk around the house. On the are times where he would wake in sleep before, all we had to do is put our hand on him for few seconds and he would settle back down for the rest of the night.After that night, a month ago, he wakes most night but most time she will settle himself back down after few 'mantra cry'. The last 2 times he woke at night this week, it's been a nightmare. He stgarts crying, I go to him, put him down ( I don't pick him up ), he'll calm down but starts crying 10 minutes after I leave the room. He'll do this for hours. I can;t take him to bed with me, it disturbs him, he does not get a good sleep that way. He figets and strirs all night when in my bed.
He is also a very impatient baby. He wants things NOW! for exemple, he'll be playing nicely and when he sees me fix his bottle of formula, he'll start crying and screeming at me, I can't get it to him fast enough it seems. He's the same with his food. Wether he is hungry or not. He also does not stand still, he wants to be picked up but he won't stay nice and quiet in our arms, he'll fidget and wants to touch evertything, always moving, unless we walk with him, then he'll stay nice end quiet in our arms.
He is a very stubborn baby. When everything is fine, he is the most pleasant to be around, unfortunatlely those are rare days. We did put him on pulsatilla when he was younger and he calmed down, we also tried sulphur but it seems to make him worse. He did pop 5 teeth at once but that was before the night waking started. He also has an extremely itchy rash on the diaper area, mostly on the back. This rash goes on and off.

I thought I;d give an update. Samuel's been sleeping a lot better at night since the camomilla.

His naps are all over the place though but I think he might be teething. HE is also less clingy but his mood is so-so. He'll be in a great mood for a couple of hours and then bam, he'll be crancky and moody for abother 2. Sometinmes it feels like this baby is so full of anger, but we don't know at what or who! And then he'll be the biggest flirt with us or with people he sees on outing and does not even know!

Thamks for the help. Should I redose him soon or just let him be?

look into formula used if associated current il with change in formual--or change in diet..a---or diet of mother if breastfed----consider exact coinciding factors (if any at all) --with the said ill--sleepless--mood..etc
