  • Completely normal. Some kids don't sleep through the whole night until they are 2. I believe anytime before one it is acceptable to need to get up and eat. Try and catch a nap if you can. If not, then carve out sometime where a relative can watch them and you can get some rest. GL!

  • My son didn't sleep thru the night until he was 3 (he's 8 now). Even then, sometimes he'd wake up and get in my bed during the night. My 2 year old daughter sleeps thru the night, most nights, now.

  • I'll let you know when mine does. She's 7 months old and still wakes up about 3 times a night.

  • It's completely normal. Mine is 10 1/2 months and still wakes numerous times to nurse. We co-sleep so it's not too much of an intruder on my own sleep.

    You could try co-sleeping, but if that's not desirable to you, buy a copy of The No Cry Sleep Solution, by Elizabeth Pantley.
