Christmas has turned my 12mo hyperactive?

Ever since our Xmas week which involved lots of travelling, staying at different relatives, eating lots of unusual (for him) foods and having his routine totally upturned, DS is completely hyper.

We've been settled back home for a week now, but he's refusing to sleep. Last night he was running riot until 10:30pm (he's just learned running after walking since 11mo) and is waking up every 2-3 hours in the night.

He's clingy, too. He'll only settle to sleep being cuddled in my&dp's bed.

Happy, I must say, constantly running around, laughing and playing but fighting about meals, getting dressed and sleeping.

Before Xmas he always slept 11 hours all through the night, settled well with milk, wasn't clingy....

No help but my 4 year old is similar.. He's still going to bed at the same time but waking up over an hour earlier.
We had his birthday, then Christmas and then another baby. All the disruption is just too much for him.
We are sticking to our guns and hopefully he'll calm down in a week or so.
Almost makes me want to cancel Christmas!! Almost that is
