how to mitigate cries?

I am a proud mama of two boys who could not be more different - so I feel like I am on a very steep learning curve wth number 2. DS1 was very mellow - we have an easy attachment parenting style that while we worked on it - was effortless b/c you could see how AP made parenting easier in the long run.
Fastfoward to #2 - we are still committed to AP - but wow - he came out crying and really has rarely stopped - he was better from 4 months to 6 months where we thought finally all of our constant. wearing, cosleeping, movement, whatever the kid needed was working - but now he has starting teething and he is one long cry! the worst is at night when he wakes up (at least once an hour) he goes right from asleep to a level 10 cry - it is so jarring for me - I eventually get him to back to sleep but by the time I am able to get back to sleep - he is awake again.
I am not sure what else to do - any ideas?
