My DD is almost 12 months and she just started sleeping through the night (well she wakes up and wants some milk at about 5 and then goes back to sleep), but she's never slept through the night regularly until now. I just put her on a schedule, whereas before I just did things when she was ready. Like when she started to get tired I would give her a nap whenever...but now she only gets one nap a day at 1pm and I won't let her sleep past three. She takes a bath at 8pm then we "clean up our toys and say goodnight to them" about 8:30 then we read whatever books she wants until about 8:50 and I start rocking her to sleep. It took about a week for her to get used to it, but now she is sleeping through the night!! I am so thrilled now! Maybe this will help...
