My littlest daughter just turned 8 mos old yesterday and she still wants to nurse every 4 hrs at night. I try to rock her back to sleep when she wakes up in the middle of the night, I tried to let her cry back to sleep, I even tried giving her a sippy cup with apple juice to quench her thirst but nothing has worked. She just wants to lay in bed wiht me and nurse. I am happy she wants to be close to mama but I am getting no sleep......I suffer from terrible headaches and my neurologist said I need to get some sleep also my babies dr said that she is just waking up and wanting to nurse out of habit...how do I break this habit????I am at a loss and would love some positive advice. Thanks in advance mamas.

My son ate during the night.....but he would eat and then go right back to sleep. Eventually, at 12 months he started sleeping through the night. I think at 8 months he was teething but before that he slept through the night and then like a clock-at 8 months old the teeth started coming and sleeping through the night went out the window. lol It gets better-I also felt that if he woke up and was hungry then I would feed him. A breastfed baby eats only when hungry IMO.
