  • Is she getting enough naps throughout the day? Is she being stimulated enough? I don't know what time she gets up and stays up for the day. At that age, my son was down for the night around 10-11pm and was up by 8-9am... with two or three wakings in between. Now he is 10 months old and naps for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, twice a day and he goes to bed at 9-10pm and wakes up at 9-10am. No wakings. He decided he didn't need his midnight munchies when he was 9 1/2 months old. You may have to just deal with couple wakings until your little one is ready. As much as it sucks.

  • MY DAUGHTER WAS SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT AT ABOUT 3 MONTH. NO HER TEETH ARE COMING OUT SO SHE WAKES UP FEW TIMES. MAYBE YOUR BABY TEETHING? ASK A DOCK.

  • That;s part of being a mom. They don't sleep through the night til they are ready. If you force it now, you're gonna have problems down the road... trust me. My 3 year old doesn't even sleep through yet.

  • My daughter slept six solid hours for the first time at 8 months. Babies sleep and eat when they need to , not when we want them so.
