Ever since day one when we brought Jax home he has slept right through the night with no problems. He will crash usually 9:30 and wake us up betweeen 5:20 and 6:00.
This week he is up at 1:00 3:00 and 5:00..... I can't figure out why all of the sudden after almost 5 weeks with him he has suddenly changed.....

How old is he now?

As he gets older he's going to need more exercise so maybe he's not getting enough energy out before being knocked out for the night? During those times he's awake does he have to eliminate? If so, I would cut the water and food off about 1-1.5hr before bed, so in your case, close to 8:30 or maybe even sooner.

During the middle of the night is he whining or even crying?

thanks for the help! He is 11 weeks now. Funny you said that, last night i had him running around like a maniac and he zonked out and slept all night like he use to... he must need more stimulation!
He doesn't whine at all at night or anytime he is in his crate ( unless I am leaving for work then he will for about 3 minutes)
The nights that he was up he was going to the washroom. poops and pees. Yesterday he had a good amount poops during the day. Maybe this is why he has been up, he could have been backed up from each day.
I will definitely stop with any water after 8:30 if I can. He could drink an ocean sometimes I think from this stale humidity so it's been hard to deny him of water.
Whatever we did yesterday we will do again today and hope it works out!!
