She's 7.5m now.

I knew it mean boob but I thought maybe beautiful breasts

Anyways theres nothing wrong w/ night waking. She could do it until she weans or stop next week. Every child is different.

For instance
My son started sleeping through the night at 2 months, weaned at 16 months and now at 2.5 is no longer sleeping through the night, he wakes up about 2 times. So you could night wean her and then in a year she could start waking up again KWIM?

my DD is 7.5 months too. It just depends ON YOU! If you don't mind Cosleeping and let her eat at night then let her, if not I would also suggest the no-cry sleep solution book

Re: Ok, seriously...there's got to be something I can do about this.

My ds's longest stretch of sleep ever is about 3 hours. The rest of the night he wakes every hour to hour and a half to nurse. We co-sleep, but he doesn't latch on by himself, so I do wake and get him attached, doze while he nurses, then detach and roll over to sleep. It's better than getting up to nurse him, IMHO, but I know what you mean with being so tired. I work from home, and on nights when I am awake working during his only good stretch of sleep, after a night or two, I get a haunted, tired look in my eyes and am often so tired by the next afternoon that i am shaky and nauseated. It's tough.

But I'll take what we are doing any day over listening to him cry for an hour at 3 am. Eventually we always manage to get back on track to where I am getting enough sleep, even if it's *just barely* enough.

If you can try cosleeping with baby right next to you (rather than a co-sleeper where you have to wake up all the way to get baby), it might help some.
