  • There is a new night time formula from Enfamil that is supposed to help babies sleep through the night. Have you tried feeding her more at night? I've noticed that if I can get my 12 wk old to eat an 8 ounce bottle in the hour before I put her to bed she will sleep through the night.

  • Allegedly the new Enfamil will do it...BUT...sleeping all night is actually NOT normal for infants. They're programmed to wake as a survival technique. I'd be deathly scared of SIDS in a baby that sleeps all night.

  • My 10 year lod still woke up at night ftill she was around 4 and wanted a drink and a cookie or cracker and would go back to sleep. so I would say no. But hope you find the help you seek. At 7 months it is still normal!

  • babies wake up at night! Some just do it sooner than others. My DD is 14 months old and she just now is sleeping thru the night. My boys slept thru at 3 months. It has nothing to do with feeding and the baby will sleep thru the night when they are biologically capable of doing so. Just like some babies talk and walk before others - it's gotta be at her own pace.
