They don't *have* to be "trained". That's something you choose to do for your own convenience.

Quoting abra:

I trained all four of my kids. With the exception of my six month old, who will wake once or twice to eat, they all sleep through the night. Some kids naturally learn to do it, others have to be trained.

Quoting Laesmommy:

It is completely normal for him to not be sleeping through the night yet. Most children do not sleep through the night untill they are 1-2. The parents whose babies started sleeping through the night at a few months are just incredibly lucky. That is NOT normal.

My son is almost 9 months as well. He is up 2-4x/night. He is very active and comfort nurses when he wakes.

At around 9 months your baby starts to go through a heightened period of seperation anxiety. Your baby misses you. It's hard getting up so much but usually your baby should fall back to sleep pretty quick.

My daughter is 2.5 and still up 1-4 times a night. She goes in spurts.

My DD is 13 mos - still wakes once, sometimes more. She is teething right now so its been more like two wakings a night.

My DS is 2 1/2 yrs old - still usually wakes up once for a bottle of milk. This is totally our fault. We let this habit continue for way too long. 

At some point their wakings become just out of habit, not because they are hungry or need anything. We didn't keep on top of that and now have the issue with our son still wanting a bottle between 3-5am. It sucks! :-(

Drug him.



Seriously. Do some research on sleep patterns. :)

The first time my eldest slept through the night (i.e. FIVE STRAIGHT HOURS), she was 3 years old. lol

The first time my youngest did it, he was three WEEKS old. Scared the shit out of me. Plus, my boobs were DYING. lol I was glad when he didn't do it again until months later. :)

He'll be a year old in two weeks, and still wakes to nurse once or twice in the night. Last night, though, he slept from 10pm-6am, so he's making me out to be a liar. lol

Normal :)

My one year old still wakes up once or twice to eat. Some babies can go all night, others cannot. Three kids and so far only one was able to go all night at 9 months.
