My 8 month old has started rocking on his knees in his crib at night instead of sleeping. Any suggestions for him to get a more restful night sleep or do we just have to wait it out till he learns to crawl?

Need some advice on baby colds. My 7 month old has been congested for about a month or so. We have tried everything. Nasal spray, crib wedge, humidifier, Vick’s baby rub. He’s also been to the doctor several times when it keeps coming back and they say it’s just a cold. He’s not sleeping and we’re not sleeping. Any suggestions?
