Nine month olds don't sleep through the night, 9 year olds don't sleep through the night, I don't sleep through the night, and you don't sleep through the night. Stop worrying about who is and is not sleeping through the night and enjoy the fact that you don't have to get out of bed to meet your child's needs at night.

I don't know mama, if she's nursing I don't think there'd be a way to not be awake???? Lots of EBF and FF babies sleep through the night, it can be done, just a matter of what you're comfortable with.

Yeah, what most everyone else has said. My 14 mo old still nurses and doesn't sleep through the night. Meh...such is life, right? My 8 yo was waking up at night until she was 4 or 5.

What's so bad about that? (I'm not trying to start an argument either) I'm happy to get out of bed to meet any of my child's needs. He would never sleep well in the bed us or in a bed next to DH and myself.

All of my kids slept thru the night by 8 months. BUT they nursed like they were starving each morning.

Re: does/did your 9 month old EBF child....

Absolutely not. My older dd was on formula at 9 months and woke every hours until 15months when she moved to every 2 hours! The slept through the night maybe at 3????? NMy younger daughter was ebf at 9 months and woke every 30-40 minutes. She's just started sleeping mostly through the night at 28months.
