I know that 6 or 7 hours of continuous sleep is considered sleeping thru the night, but I know what you mean. You want 8 hours of sleep too =]My suggestion to you would be to put your little one to bed at the same time every night and then wake her before you go to bed and give her a bottle. She will most likely sleep thru the bottle. Put her right back into bed. Maybe she will sleep on until the next morning.My son is 5 months and sleeps thru the night. It's all in how you schedule them to do things. Your baby will wake up until she's grown if you allow her to. You need to let her know that it's bed time and she isn't going to get up. Also, I would suggest grabbing a copy of Babywise. It has a lot of helpful info on sleeping thru the night. It also suggest the cry it out method which i don't do, but it helped me put my son on a consistent routine which then turned into sleeping all night.
