My daughter just turned ten months today. She still gets up at least once to feed(sometimes twice). I love the one on one time, but I am exhausted. I am looking forward to sleeping through the night.

unfortunately yes! my daughter still gets up throughout the evening for feedings. granted she goes right back to sleep, i'm tired of broken sleep. I haven't slept six to eight straight hours since July 20, 2009, the day she was born!

My son is 10 months old and still wakes up a couple times for a bottle. He drinks anywhere from 8-10 oz during the night, sometimes more sometimes less. I wish some nights that he would just sleeeep but i'm not going to deprive him if he's hungry!

yes, my ten month old does still wake up for feeding at least once every night. I am looking forward sleeping again. However, with 4 kids that is really the only quiet time She and I have together. Mixed feelings...

My son has started waking up in the night for a feed the last couple of months after being a lovely boy and sleeping through the night sleeping 10 1/2 - 11 hrs from age 3 months till 7 1/2 months. Things changed when we went on holiday tripping around in a motorhome. Now we have only had 5 full nights sleep in 2 months. He hasn't got his teeth yet so I hoping that things might settle down he he gets them.

yup we can wake up as many as 4 or 5 times a night...sometimes two which is amazing and occasionally only once which I think is HEAVEN! haha. I know it won't last forever so i take advantage of the extra cuddles we get! my 10 month old hasn't slept through once yet but she will when she is ready. I always feed her when she wakes up. she'll let me know if she just wants a cuddle or she'll have a drink and got straight back to sleep.

Yes yes she does! Not only wakes up for milk but she will make noises while her eyes is shut, she will make action such as clapping hands and caressing the pillows .Then i will try to pat few times to make her sleep. That is i have to hit hard on her pampers to make her sleep still. Very tiring the next day, as she wakes me up 3-4 times.

Glad to know I'm not the only one as well! My son will wake about 3 or 4 nights out of the week and we try EVERYTHING before handing him a bottle. Our doc says he doesnt need ANY night time feedings anymore and we shouldnt feed him. But I swear sometimes he really does need it. It's only 6oz though too. On the other nights he sleeps just fine waking up maybe but falling back to sleep on his own within a minute, so i don't believe it's a "habit" . He doesn't have the longest sleep (it's only 10pm to 5am) but hey, sleep is sleep and that sleep schedule is what works for our family and work schedule!

my son has been sleeping through the night since he was 3 months old but every now and then, for a week or so, (including this week!) he will wake up to eat.

if they are waking in the night its because they are either hungry or they know they can get away with it ! if hungry why not try given them a yogurt or some porridge about an hour before bed i have had 4 children and after 6 weeks i do not feed them in the night whats so ever i have a week of bad sleep but they soon get the message and stop waking up so its worth it in the end and even though i do it at 6 weeks it should work at any age sometimes its cruel just to be kind and keep your own sanity

Mine gets up once and I give him a 6oz bottle. At his 9 month appt, my doctor said I should only give him water and in a smaller bottle (5oz or so) with a slower flow nipple so he won't get accustomed to needing to be fed during the night. She said this would be the ony time she would ever tell anyone to give their baby water at this age. Anyways, I haven't tried it yet because he has been sick but we'll see how it goes when he gets better.

Yes. They still have small little tummies. I often wake up thirsty and would be mighty pissed off if someone denied me a drink.

yes he nurses at least once a night. usually he sleeps fro 6 or 7 hours first though so I am ok with it. I can't go to bed without a glass of water next to my bed so I dont expect him to sleep all night without a drink too
