My eight month old daughter still isn't sleeping through the night. She RARELY takes naps during the day, unless we're in the car, she goes to bed around 9pm every night, but she still wakes up every two hours or so. Anyone have any tips on things to try to help her sleep better?Answer Question

Ditto to Anon. Even if you are just laying down for 2 2hr stints that is good. She will soon just sleep instead of lay there.
Few other things to check ... Is she teething? If so this could be some of your problem. Laying down is very uncomfortable when teething. Try either teething tablets, orajel or Tylenol if that is the case. When feeding baby still make sure you breastfeed before solids. The introduction of solids can cause some discomfort. I have also read that feeding solids before bed can have the opposite effect (wakeful baby instead of a sleepy one).
Finally sleep(ing through the night) is a developmental stage reached in baby's own time no amount of forcing the matter will change things. Hang in there! Sleep will come, eventually.
