Cosleeping always got my dd to sleep at least 10 hours a night.

sleeping through the night is pretty much individual to the baby and developmental.  We are pretty good at getting out 8 month old to sleep in her crib but when she wakes up is anyone's guess.  most nights she sleeps from 11p-6:45a.  We give her a bath, I nurse her to sleep.  We have a white noise maching with a little night light in her room. We make sure she's in a warm sleeper outfit so she's comfortable without blankets.  However, it's just a fact of life for us that some nights, she'll be screaming at 1:30 to nurse.

Babies t sleeping through the night is a myth. Some do, some don't. You can't force it.

honestly, this is the only way I can make sure dd sleeps through the night. she slept by herself before but she's gotten used to falling asleep with us lately. I knnow she won't be little for much longer (the last 14 months have already flown by) so I'm not worried about putting her in her own room right now, especially since this is the easiest way for me to sleep too lol

I would say it just depends on the child. I don't think mine REALLY slept through the night til she was about 12+ months. I mean she would wake up at 5 or 6am and I would give her some water or something. but I would play with her more so things through out the day to kind of get her tired. And give her bath right before bed and put lotion on her and that seemed to help sometimes, other than that, I think they just have their own time til they will do so :)

Like the PP, it depends on the baby when they are ready. DS slept all night last night. First time ever. We didn't do anything differently. He was just ready.

I'm going to disagree. MOST babies are physically able to sleep through the night by 4 months but we tend to teach our kids to wake up between sleep cycles as infants, thus creating this vicious circle of 'need'.
10 months is a hard time to teach sleeping through the night on their own because they are grasping object permanence. It might be better to wait a bit until baby's independence kicks in.
Does your child fall asleep alone or does s/he get 'put' to sleep? The answer would affect any advice I can give.

That will make it much easier :)
When he wakes up what do you do to get him back to sleep?
