Been there, done that, and it stinks! It may be a growth spurt, in which case it's probably almost over, or it may be a developmental sleep regression, in which case it could last for a month or more. (Then you might get it again around eight months, blech.) The good news is, most babies do eventually go back to their previous normal, or even a little better. The bad news is, there's not much you can do while you're in it except endure.
