My daughter is going to be 9 months and she sleeps in our bed and still wakes up in the middle of the night to eat at least 2-3 times is that normal for a breastfeed baby? My son is 6yrs old and he was formula fed and slept through the night.

My son slept through night and took two long naps a day in his crib. My daughter on the other hand does not sleep through the night and will not take a nap unless she naps on me as soon as i am going to put her in her crib she starts to cry before i even put her down. Same thing at night that's why she's in the bed with us.

I always try to give her the pacifier First and she Spits it
Out and she trys to Sit so I feed her and she goes right back to sleep.
No didn't co-sleep my son he ate and went right to sleep with no problem in his crib.

While it is probably "normal" it is not necessary for her to nurse during the night. I can see how it would be pleasant for her, when she rouses, to cuddle and nurse and settle back to sleep. Did you co-sleep you son and for how long?
