Our 8 month old wont sleep though the night. She gets to sleep fine and when she wakes up she'll go back to sleep on her own. Except if she's hungry. She'll cry until we feed her, most of the time getting louder and louder as we prepair the bottle. (Yes, we bottle-feed. I had complications and will be back to pumping in a matter of months.)
She wakes up 3-5 times during the night to eat.
We used to put baby cereal in her bottle (pediatrician recommended) and she slept the entire night through. We started this when she was 6.5 months old and stopped when she was 7 months old because we learned of the hazards of putting cereal in a bottle. Now we cannot get her to stay asleep due to hunger, nomatter what we do. She will only eat about half a baby food jar a day. When she's done she just spits it out.. Out of desperation (i have a sleeping disorder) we gave her the tinyest bit of cereal and she slept 3 hours longer than ususal.
