Infant unable to sleep unless taken in arms. What is wrong?

Hi, My son aged 1.8 is not sleeping through the night From the time he is born I never saw this problem, from last 2 months he is doing so. Once he gets up he wants me to take him in my arms and this will continue for next 2.3 hrs and then he will sleep off. Normally he goes to bed by 11 PM and wakes up at 2 AM and sleeps off again by 5 or 5:30 AM. Please advice me if he is going through any dis comfort.

As there is no other complaint associated with this problem and he is otherwise healthy it is looking like apperance of Rapproachment which is like seperation anxiety in which the child feels being seperated from parents during nights while sleeping and it is a normal phenomenon. Consult your Pediatrician once to clarify your doubts regarding this issue.
