Night time feedings, just curious

I'm not having an issue really, but just curious. I know the first feeding that is supposed to go away is the night time feeding. Poll of when this has happened for you mommies out there. DS is 8 months, BM only, no formula ever. He eats from the table, when he feels like it. I puree our food before seasoning it. Some times he eats 3 meals from the table, most days it is boobie only. I have not seen any corelation in how much table food he eats vs. how many times he wakes through the night. Basically, if he eats a bit of food, he eats less off me. Wakes to nurse anywhere from once a night to 4 times a night. 2 is pretty much the norm. I enjoy the rocking, and cuddling during the night. Just wondering when! Seemes like my first baby cut out nursing during the night way sooner.

And thus the- start solids/sleep through the night- myth has been debunked. Finally!

My own 11 month old wakes about every 1-2 hours to nurse at night. Children sleep through without needing you at night when they're developmentally ready to. For some this may not be until four years of age.

My baby, Esmeralda, is 4 months and she only wakes up once to BF. She sleeps a good 5 hours during the night before waking up.

My 6 month old daughter stopped waking to nurse during the night on her own around 5-5 1/2 months. Just one night she slept right through and has been doing so ever since (with the occasional exception)She was waking 1-2 times at least before then and has never had solids yet.She will eat like a crazy person when she wakes up though after sleeping 8+hours LOL

My 8 month old gets up at least once a night to nurse. Up until last week it was always at least twice and now she is getting later and later. I think she may be on her way to stopping altogether, which I have mixed feelings about. A full night's sleep would be amazing, but I quite like our quiet moments too!
