8 Month Old Baby Trying to Kill Me.

My just turned 8 month old baby is trying to kill me...by sleep deprivation! She is able to fall asleep independently and does so at nap times and at bedtime, but she still wakes up every 2-3 hours throughout the night and needs to be nursed back to sleep. She will scream for over an hour if I let her cry it out, but will fall back asleep in 5 minutes if I nurse her. Any suggestions? Any other moms dealt with this?

We have four kids, and they all needed 5 minute nursing sessions throughout the night when they were that age. I would continue to nurse, nap when your baby naps if you need to, and just try to get to her and nurse her back to sleep as quickly as possible to minimize the night time interruption for you both.
